Water is everywhere. The human body is 70% water. The Earth’s surface is nearly 75% covered by water. Humans need water to survive. Yet, too much water can be harmful. Water has many uses, other than just being needed to survive.
Water helps maintain a healthy body weight and leads to higher energy levels. Drinking enough water can decrease the risk of diseases like cancer. Water is also essential to prevent mild or even chronic dehydration, which can cause headaches and fatigue.
Water also plays a big role in the health of our skin and hair.
With the winter season in full swing, you may notice you are suffering from dry skin. A big advantage of drinking water is naturally moisturized skin. Water flushes out bacteria and wastes that can accumulate in all places of your body. Water helps proper cellular formation underneath the skin to give you a glowing appearance.
Soft water can also make your hair look shinier, healthier and feel softer. The natural oils in your hair are what make it soft, but the minerals in hard water can affect those oils. Minerals like calcium and magnesium can even cause dandruff by giving you a really dry scalp.
If you suspect that your water softener is not working, wash your hands and see if they feel squeaky when rinsing them. If the hard minerals in the water are present, your natural oils will not allow your hands to slide smoothly against each other.
If your water seems to be hard but you are unsure, you can get a free water test from Kinetico San Antonio.
