The Effects of Hard Water on Skin

Hard water is composed of high concentrations of insoluble minerals such as calcium carbonate and dolomite. Although hard water contains these components is not detrimental to their health, but is harsh on the skin. If you must use hard water on a daily basis, using a water softener is highly recommended, as this will help reduce the harmful effects of hard water in the skin.

The damage to healthy skin cells
Hard water can damage healthy skin cells. Elements such as zinc, lead, magnesium and calcium found undissolved in hard water will break the elastin and collagen found in healthy skin cells. When this happens, the skin becomes vulnerable to sun damage by harmful ultraviolet rays.

Dry Skin
The minerals in hard water insoluble wind up settling on the surface of the skin and cause itching and dryness. In severe cases, the skin may swell, crack and bleed.

Ineffective on germs
The skin is more prone to germs when washing in hard water and actually cover the skin with a dull film, due to insoluble minerals in it. When this happens, the body's natural oils can not reach the epidermis of the skin, and this leads to failure in natural antimicrobial properties of the skin
