Filter Your Water!
So I have previously blogged about how important it is to drink quality filtered water...but what about the water we shower in?
Of course this is the same chemical laden water that we get through our pipes in Australia, so why don't more people consider shower filters?
Our skin is our biggest organ and absorbs A LOT. Awareness is rising regarding our skincare products, with a push for more organic options that reduce the chemical load on our bodies.
With the chemicals in our shower water, largely chlorine, this too should be of concern. There are a variety of shower filters on the market now, so it's important to do your research. Ensure that the filter won't significantly reduce in efficiency the more water that passes through, which will often mean you may need a replacement every 6-12 months depending on your shower length and frequency.
I have used a shower filter for a couple of years now and will continue to do so. Your skin feels the difference, less likely to dry out and even your hair appreciates the filtered water. Get researching today!
