Does Your Skin Feel Tight After You've Been In The Shower?
Even something as simple as taking a shower can be damaging to your skin if not done the right way. Tap water is often very hard, particularly so in urban areas. The limescale inside it attacks appliances and plumbing, as well as causing skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and irritations. What's more, the warmer the water, the greater the amount of limescale deposited on the skin. Limescale alone isn't to blame, though. Hot water can harm the skin by removing its protective barrier, meaning the epidermis is stripped of its fatty acids and ceramides. As a result, skin feels dry, tight and itchy. Here are a few ways in which you can protect your skin and keep it feeling soft all day long.
