Did you know that rising temperatures often mean an increase in water consumption and usage? Whether to stay cool, hydrated or simply wash off from a day at the beach or pool, water usage in the home quickly rises when summer hits. The quality of your in-home water could have a direct impact on your health and comfort. As we mentioned in a previous blog post, poor water quality can change the texture of your clothes, but what many people don’t realize is that skin and hair can be affected in the same way, especially for young and delicate skin types.
While occasional dry and irritated skin is common with a change in temperature, many homeowners forget to take the quality of water into account. Water quality is measured by the type and amount of dissolved minerals found in the water, and then placed into one of two categories: hard water or soft water. When water contains a high number of dissolved minerals, it is known as hard water, which can leave a light residue that could clog your pores and cause skin irritations on delicate skin. Soft water is treated water that contains only sodium, leaving your skin and hair unharmed. By keeping your water filtered and treated, you can prevent unwanted skin irritations and discomfort while cleansing and enjoying those outdoor water activities all summer long.
