Is Tap Water Really That Bad For My Hair and Skin?

November 7, 2017

One of our daily routines is cleansing our body, hair and skin. There’s no way to get around it. But using tap water can be a leading factor into why your hair and skin is dry and harsh. Here are some points on why you should consider thinking about investing in a water softener that will leave you with the cleanest, softest skin.

What’s in Tap Water?

Here in San Antonio, tap water is hard water comprised of a high mineral composition, containing minerals like calcium that can leave your skin with redness, irritation and inflammation. If you have rosacea or hypersensitive skin, you are making your skin even worse as you apply hard water on your face causing a never-ending fight with your already red skin.

Tap Water Dries Out Skin

Hard water can also contain chlorine, which acts to dry and strip the natural oils and proteins from your skin. Just like after you come back from a chlorinated pool, your skin feels itchy and dry.

Effects of Tap Water Over Time

If you expose your skin to harmful chemical elements over time, this can lead to blotchiness, redness and even premature aging (wrinkles). These minerals that are in your hard water can even breakdown collagen and tissue in your skin.

*Take a moment and consider if your bathroom faucets have stains around them. All those minerals and chemicals staining your bathroom is the same hard water residue you wash your skin with.

Why Invest in Water Softener?

Water softeners eliminate harsh chemicals and minerals that make your skin and hair dry and itchy. Water softeners remove the minerals, giving you the purest water for your home. Water softeners will make your appliances residue free, protect your plumbing and fixtures, and will make your hair and skin look and feel healthier!

We're very glad we got this installed. The technician, Alberto, was very polite and thoroughly explained what he was doing and what we would need to do.

Alberto kept me informed on his arrival time. He was professional and exceeded my expectations concerning the install of the water filtration system. I also need to put a plug in for Tracy for her patience and skills at making things happen behind the scenes...a true unsung hero. They both deserve a raise!


I just had my system installed by Alberto and Jay, and I wanted to say that they rocked. Got it all in and gave me some instructions to follow, all while being determined to detail and professional. Thanks, fellas.
