It's no wonder that spas across the nation are turning toward filtered water system. Many spa owners claim that regular tap water contains bacteria and minerals which can clog pores. Over time, this can mean dull skin.
Experts say the cleaner the water, the better it can clean. The purer the water, the more pure the skin. (Seems like a no-brainer.) Filters help weed out things like chlorine and heavy metal. The cleaner, softer water, they say, attributes to not only clearer, but also softer skin. Heavy water can irritate skin, even making it red. Also, reverse-osmosis filters make water molecules smaller, which can penetrate and hydrate the skin better. According to an MSN Lifestyle article, Diane Somerville (a Hollywood facialist) swears by it.
But, while spa-going is a luxurious way to spend the afternoon, it's not practical for everyone's wallet, everyday. With a filtered water system at home, cleansing the face in your own sink can have the same radiant effect on your skin.
Some critics say that these metals aren't dangerous to the skin. But- how can a glowing face be wrong? So, perhaps the search over. The fountain of youth could be springing at your home, after all.
The trend of filtered water aiding in skin care has also been bottled up, beyond faucets. Upscale bottled water brand Evian sells water sprays for the skin. They claim it can refresh and rejuvenate the skin. This product appeals to jetsetters or office workers whose face and skin may get dry from the cabin or cubicle air, as well as to athletes to soothe the sun or cool a perspired face.
So, the word from spa owners to water bottlers is that filtered water is far better for keeping a beautiful complexion. And- we also can't forget that being hydrated always helps skin glow as well. From inside out, filtered water is "in for your skin!"
