Does anyone here use a shower filter? If you shower in the morning and wash your face, do you take another one at night to wash your face again? Explain your regimen using the shower filter.

I've heard good things about them. I was considering getting one, but they're kinda expensive.

I use one and like it.

I did notice a difference in the water after installation. But it's nothing incredibly dramatic.
I would recommend one just because of all the chlorine in the water systems today. Your body absorbs that up while in the shower. Not good.

As far as helping acne, it probably won't be your "cure".
But it will certainly help, especially if your acne is caused by skin irritation.

I purchased an inexpensive one from a company called "Sprite", it was about $30 at Home Depot.
I think the replacement filters (every 6 months for this particular model) are $10-20.


Goodluck!

I have a filter that uses charcoal and a three layer system. It works well but the filter must be replaced every 3 months. confused.gif

I have a vitamin C filter in my shower. I only shower before bed. And wipe my face with a washcloth in the morning.

Do you have sensitive skin? Have you seen any improvement after switching to filtered water?

I have rosacea and it is better, but then I changed my diet too. I did it mostly for my hair and to prevent the breathing in of chlorine day after day.

I went to Home Depot today and bought the same Sprite brand.
Can't wait to install!
