Three Ways Treated Water Can Benefit Your Body
1 – Soft and Smooth Hair
Treated water is important to achieve naturally smooth, manageable hair. Treated, softened water means you use less soap, and it rinses out easier, meaning your hair will maintain its color longer and feel conditioned. Water that has been treated also balances your hair’s pH level, leaving it silky smooth hair after every wash.
The Problems with Hard Water on Your Hair
Have you ever thought your hair feels like straw or feels filmy, even after you just washed it? Perhaps your scalp feels dry and itchy. This may be caused by hard water in your shower and bath. The excess minerals in hard water unite with shampoo, forming a soap scum layer that sticks to your hair, body, and the bath. While you may feel you need to wash your hair more often to remove the soapy residue from your hair, the more often you do means less moisture can effectively enter the hair strands. A healthy head of hair needs hydration. Hard water can cause course, dry, and frizzy hair, and dries out your scalp, potentially causing annoying dandruff.
The minerals in hard water collect on the hair shaft which can turn colored hair to a “brassy” tone. With hard water, people tend to wash their hair more frequently, which can cause the color to fade more quickly.
Our Evolve Series® water softener system works to remove hard water minerals like calcium and magnesium in your home’s water supply, providing you with soft water and smooth hair.
2 – Softer and Healthier Skin
Removing hardness minerals like calcium and magnesium in your water is a great benefit for your skin. You will be less likely to have clogged pores and your skin tends to stay hydrated better. You won’t feel as irritated and itchy. Clean, moisture skin means you are more likely to have the clean, clear, beautiful skin you desire.
Soft water is far easier to get a sudsy lather from your soap and shampoo, plus it makes it easy to rinse away the soap. Your soap will work more efficiently, and you are not left with soap scum clogging your pores and soap residue all over your body.
The Problems with Hard Water on Your Skin
Hard water is hard on your skin. Hard water’s dissolved minerals make it harder for water to form a solution with soap, and it leaves behind a scummy residue that can build up on your skin. Instead of getting a nice lather, you’re leaving behind a residue that clogs your pores. Clogged pores can lead to breakouts and worsen skin conditions like acne or eczema. The natural oils your body produces are distributed through the pores of your skin. When those pores are clogged, the oil gets trapped and blemishes like pimples and zits form as well.
Hard water makes it harder for you and your family (and your pets!) to get a deep clean while showering and bathing. Hard water stops you from getting a quality lather and people often use more soap to get clean, which only makes the problem worse.
Studies indicate that the minerals in hard water may also be making our skin age faster. Scum in untreated water scum like magnesium and iron can damage healthy skin cells and cause collagen breakdown. Collagen is an important structural protein that assists skin to feel and look firm and healthy. This could accelerate fine lines and wrinkles appearing.
Treating your home’s hard water through a water softener system is a reasonable way to get clean, clear water with the many benefits that come along with it.
3 – Easy Access to Clean, Pure Drinking Water
Our bodies are made up of roughly 60% water. It’s one of the most essential elements of human life – yet many of us do not drink nearly enough of it. Some area residents don’t like the water from their faucets so they turn to purchasing bottled water. What if you could get even better quality water than bottled water right from the tap?
A reverse osmosis drinking water system is the ideal treatment to your household’s drinking water. Nearly maintenance-free, they provide clean, refreshing water right in your home. There is no need to be concerned about what it is in your water when it has the right treatment.
Below are 11 things to be less concerned about when you treat your drinking water with a Reverse Osmosis system. The popular UltroWater® systems are certified and tested to reduce the following contaminants from your water:
