Beauty Water Filter & Md Hydra Pure Moisture Cream

Recommended Posts

http://www.dermaharmony.com/dermatitis/hardwaterdermatitis.aspx

The more I learn, the more I feel like a hypochondriac, but my skin definitely worsened in both aging and acne- immensely- moving from a less-hard water location to hard water location.

I'm taking this one with a grain of metaphoric salt since it's promoting these two products

salt, http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/05/magazine/05beauty.html?_r=0

but there might be something to this...

The filters that remove chlorine don’t necessarily remove chloramine.

Chloramine can be removed for drinking water purposes by a carbon block or activated carbon filter that can be installed on a kitchen faucet. Also, both chlorine and chloramine can be removed for bathing purposes by dissolving Vitamin C in the bath water. One 1000 mg Vitamin C tablet will neutralize chloramine in an average bathtub. (18)

Sought this out as I learned LA is gradually changing its water from chlorine to chloramine, chlorine + ammonia. http://la.curbed.com/archives/2014/04/los_angeles_is_slowly_switching_to_bettertasting_tap_water.php

**** Amazon sells a product called Vitabath: Effervescent Vitamin C for Dechlorination!

After a week of the Vitabath, I've noticed no dramatic change in the texture of my skin. If anything, it's too acidic. I could add baking powder, but I'm afraid of what that will do to my hair- the C was not kind to it. Perhaps I'll try a filter ball on the bathtub faucet the next time I go to NY.

Going to try weekly ACV baths instead.
