About a month ago, I wrote a piece about the possible link between tap water and acne.
I actually decided I’d try to washing my face with distilled water for a month and note any changes I saw in the texture and clarity of my skin, since I’m always game for experiments in face washing. I’ve noticed a few changes in my skin and hair, since living in an area with fairly hard water. Therefore, my skin is drier and more prone to that tight feeling while my hair is less oily but more inclined to accrue dreaded soap and product buildup. I’m sure it sounds familiar.|Doesn’t it sound familiar?|Sounds familiar?|right, right? I was still very curious to see what would happen, although I haven’t noticed much difference in my breakouts since moving.
I became less and less enthused with the endeavor, mainly because it was such a hassle to dole out a little bit of special water every morning for my wash, just after the first week. I’d be reaching for the big jug as soap slowly seeped into my eyes… this just shows how spoiled I am by the tap, if I didn’t give myself enough. Purer water that optimizes soap and allows serums and moisturizers better access to your skin sounds like a good deal. At the moment, Actually I just don’t have the patience for it!
The hair shaft can only absorb so much water, and if the first water it soaks up was not full of minerals, your shampoo will have a better time of destroying buildup.
