Beauty Find: Shower Water Filter

January 30, 2007 by Ktbradford

Water is an essential element – everyone knows that. To keep my skin and body healthy I drink 8 glasses a day and, of course, I only drink filtered water. Unnecessary chemicals in the body is so un-chic. But even though many of us buy bottled water or buy filters for the kitchen tap, we don’t often consider the water we use to wash our skin. It makes sense that chemicals we wouldn’t want to drink are probably best not absorbed by the skin, either. But most folks don’t have house-wide filters for their water (and can’t afford them). You can filter your kitchen water, why not your shower, too?

The makers of the Enviro Premium Shower Filter claim that by removing the chlorine in tap water you can eliminate dry skin, frizzy hair, dandruff, and color fading. While I’m not sure chlorine is responsible for all of that, I do know that it can have a detrimental effect on skin and hair. After all, it is a protein-stripping chemical. Plus, depending on where you live, the smell of chlorine can be quite strong in the water and stay on you. Yuck.

I’m wary of any single product that promises to solve all of my problems. Multitaskers often fall short of their claims. Thus, I approached the filter with some skepticism. After using it for several weeks, I can report that my sensitive skin is less irritated and my hair feels softer out of the shower. I definitely don’t smell the chlorine anymore. Time will tell if the positive effects compound.

This is a great alternative to expensive house-wide filter systems and the perfect solution for those who don’t have that option (renters, for example). It’s easy to install and works with almost every shower. Plus, the filter lasts for a whole year. If only my Brita faucet mount would give me that much time. Get the filter system from eGeneralMedical.com for $32 (20% off).
