One very important question is hardly ever asked: how important is the quality of water for skincare? When we take into account how important water is to life, we can then realize how water can help us achieve healthier skin. So, do you know how important the quality of your water is?
How Important is the Quality of Water for Skincare?
Can water be the most important thing in your beauty routine? If we ask experts and dermatologist, they would probably say: of course it is. Well, perhaps water is not the most important, but in this Kristals Cosmetics tips edition we will show you how important the quality of water for skincare is.
Water can be divided into two categories: hard water and soft water. Hard water is the most common type, with 85% of American household reporting to have at least moderately hard water. Hard water is more prevalent in areas where water has to be treated for consumption.
Soft water can be found in mountainous areas where water it is more pure. This water is not as exposed to as many pollutants as in urban areas.
The importance of the water we use to take care of our bodies has to do with how dry our skin will feel and look. We can see the effects after we shower and wash our hands or faces.
The harder the water, the drier our skin; on the other hand, the softer the water, the less dry our skin will be. I’m sure you all have experienced this. Sometimes you go on a trip to another city and find that your skin will look either better or worse than it does at home.
pH: The Balancing Act
But the quality of water for skincare is not the only factor we need to worry about when trying to maintain healthier skin. The foods we eat, the amount of exercise we do, and the quality of skincare products we use have a significant impact on our skin’s health and its pH levels.
PH stands for “potential hydrogen” and is measured in a scale form 0 – 14. With 0 being extreme acidity (battery acid) and 14 being extreme alkalinity (drain cleaner), while 7 the pH of water is considered neutral. Everything we do and consume during our day can impact our pH levels.
Kristals Cosmetics tips to follow for balancing your pH levels:
- Pay close attention to the pH levels of your skincare products
- Change your dietary habits to a more alkaline type of diet
- Exercise regularly
- Use cleansers that use chemical exfoliants, such as alpha, beta, or polyhydroxy acids
- Hydrate by drinking plenty of water (and filter your water for best results)
If we follow these simple steps, we can combat the damage caused by water and other factors that contribute to our skin’s pH levels.
