Why Does My Face Always React To Water?

Woman faceWe all have at some point had to change location; be it  relocation or a short vacation hence, a change in our water type which most times could cause a break out. Those with a very sensitive skin would understand.

Most times this happens as a result of hard water which has a high metal and mineral content that can make it harder to wash off beauty products. This not only clogs pores, but also irritates the skin, making it itchy, flaky and dry causing causing dry skin, acne, and even more serious conditions like eczema.

So what do you do?

Bottled water

  1. Use Bottled Water: On vacation if you have sensitive skin and you notice that each time you go on vacation your skin breaks out or suffers from dryness, try this method to rule out water as a cause for your problems.

2. Infuse Your Water: You can go for top-shelf treatments like lavender water (which           is said to clear acne), Rosewater or you can use a less time-consuming and less             costly method like infusing your water with baking soda or salt water: Trust me.                Infused water is what’s up.

Bioling water


  1. Boil Your Water: If your tap water isn’t tasty enough for you to drink then you definitely shouldn’t put it on your face. The skin on our face is more sensitive than the rest of our bod because it’s exposed to various toxins on the regular.


  1. Filter your water: This is the most ideal way to ensure water doesn’t stand between you and flawless skin. I definitely recommend testing your water out to make sure it’s necessary, but if you have very sensitive skin and you’ve tried everything else, a shower filter system is not as costly as the amount of heartache it can take to get rid of acne.Filter shower
