change in water type helping acne?

Recommended Posts

About 2 weeks ago now I started attending university which meant me moving from an area with very soft water to a place with hard water, I know that hard water contains many more dissolved minerals than soft water and I was wondering if that could be having an effect on my skin?

Ive not only been washing my face with the hard water but drinking it also and since I've moved I've seen a great improvement in my skin whereby I'm not really getting new breakouts (and if I do they're very small individual spots) and any spots I had previously have healed to the point where theres just remaining hyper pigmentation. All this has occurred whilst I've pretty much abandoned my skincare routine whilst settling into my new accommodation, so I was wondering if the water was having an effect or if its just coincidence?
