Are your hands and skin feeling dry, itchy and or cracking? Are you suffering from breakouts? If you said yes to any of these then a Culligan Water softener may be just what you need. You’re probably thinking “A water softener? REALYY?” Yes, really! Hard water contributes to a bunch of hair and skin issues, including dry itchy skin, and acne. Hard water has even been linked to Eczema. Thankfully, your local Culligan dealer of Fort McMurray is here to the rescue!!
SO WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HARD AND SOFT WATER?
Hard water has high amounts of calcium and magnesium. Soft water, on the other hand has little to no extra calcium and magnesium.
Not sure exactly what a Water softener does? Well here is a quick break down. The device reduces the calcium and magnesium levels by filtering the water through resin, a bead like substance covered with positively charged sodium ions. When the water passes through this substance the resin exchanges its sodium ions with the calcium and magnesium ions thus making the water soft.
So this is why a Culligan water softener will help you and your family. Hard water can make your scalp dry and itchy much the same way it does on your skin. When your skin becomes dry, it increases oil production to make up for its dryness. This causes a build-up, which in turn clogs your pores by leaving a film on your skin and in your hair. Soft water works with soap, helps make a better lather and you only need to use a little bit of it. Where hard water counteracts its effectiveness. It creates that filmy sticky residue. Hard water has you using more soap and doesn’t help rinse off as well as soft water.
A study done on children showed that 83% of the participant’s rashes and or eczema decreased after using a water softener for a couple of months and 67% of the group were able to use fewer medications for the eczema. Now that sounds like a win to me.
Do you by chance have teenagers in your household who are suffering with acne or do you suffer with adult Acne? Use of hard water on the skin can even cause acne. When your skin becomes dry, again it increases oil production to make up for it, which can lead to acne. The unwanted minerals in hard water can also cause a chemical reaction with this naturally occurring oil, clogging pores and causing breakouts.
A Culligan of Fort McMurray Water Softener won’t dry your skin and strip it of its natural oils, thus leading you or your family members to clearer skin and fewer breakouts.
Did you know that a Culligan Water Softener also help reduce the amount of soap and shampoo needed? A cost savings point for you. Hard water can cause hair to become dull and flat, because shampoo doesn’t lather as well and it doesn’t rinse out as well in hard water. And if you like to have you hair coloured, keep in mind that the minerals in hard water make your colour fade faster. Oh and how about that shower! A Culligan Water Softener makes cleaning faster and easier too. You wont have to scrub soap scum off the shower walls and glass! Why? Because the minerals are not there to create that filmy and sticky residue. All in all, a Culligan water softener will help keep your skin soft, hair nourished, less frizzy, and save you time cleaning!
