When you step out of the shower or bath, does your skin feel smooth and clean or dry and itchy? The water in your home can have great effects on the condition of your skin, and it can all come down to whether you have hard water or soft water.
While hard water isn’t necessarily harmful, it does have the potential to cause issues with those who have sensitive skin. Its high mineral content prevents soapy products from achieving a luxurious lather, thus making it difficult for these substances to dissolve. This causes a thin, invisible layer of soap and other products to be left on your skin. You may recognize this same build-up caused by mineral deposits as that white, tough-to-clean layer left behind on your shower doors. To summarize, when hard water prevents products from rinsing off cleanly, it can cause some issues.
Meanwhile, soft water makes it easier to form a sudsy lather and rinse the soup away. This means your soap works more efficiently, and you aren’t left with that pore-clogging soap residue on your body. You’ll also be able to use less soap product to get clean. In fact, after installing a whole house water softener in MI, you may not need to purchase the expensive bath products you once thought you needed!
