Pueblo’s Prescription: Softened Water For Skin And Hair Care

Pueblo’s Prescription: Softened Water For Skin And Hair Care

Water is an indispensable part of our daily lives, deeply engrained in our routines, including skin and hair care. But are you aware that the water you use can have a significant impact on the health and glow of your skin and the strength of your hair? Let’s delve into the concept of softened water and its benefits, and understand why is it hail as ‘Pueblo’s Prescription.’

What is Softened Water?

Simply put, softened water is water that’s had most of its calcium and magnesium minerals removed, which are primarily responsible for making water ‘hard.’ These minerals are not harmful to ingest. However, they do interfere with the effectiveness of soap and detergents, as well as contribute to layers upon layers of limescale in your plumbing system. Softened water, by contrast, can lead to smoother, softer skin, shinier hair, and even extends the lifespan of your household appliances.

Pueblo’s Prescription: A Key to Flourishing Skin and Hair

Named after the city of Pueblo in Colorado, ‘Pueblo’s Prescription’ swears by the use of softened water for improving overall skin and hair health. Hard water makes it difficult for soap and shampoo to lather, leading to residue build-up on the skin and hair. Softened water, conversely, allows thorough cleansing, keeping the skin breathable and the hair light and bouncy.

The Role of Minerals in Hard Water

Excessive minerals in hard water, like calcium and magnesium, can lead to dry and itchy skin, dull hair, and aggravation of conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. When this mineral-rich hard water combines with soap or shampoo, it leaves behind a coating of scum which can clog pores and weigh down the hair. Softened water nullifies these ill-effects with its considerably lower mineral content.

Validating the Benefit of Softened Water

A study conducted by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers suggests that softened water significantly improves skin and hair health. They discovered that individuals who used softened water for bathing experienced less skin dryness and hair breakage compared to those who used regular, hard water.

Considerations for Using Softened Water

While there aren’t any significant drawbacks to using softened water, it’s worth noting that the softening process reduces beneficial mineral content. Regular ingestion of softened water should be supplemented with a balanced diet to replenish these important minerals.

Easy Ways to Obtain and Use Softened Water

Switching over to softened water is a feasible and affordable solution for many households. Practical options include a whole-house softening system or simpler solutions like installing a showerhead with a built-in water softener.

The Verdict

From personal experience, softened water is well worth the transition. The benefits for skin and hair, plus the long-term savings on soap, detergents, and plumbing repairs provide a compelling case for ‘Pueblo’s Prescription.’
