I've been suffering of a mild form of eczema since my teens. It's never been really really bad, but it always got worse when the weather got colder. That's when the itching feels like it will never end.
A friend told me she saw an article in the paper saying there's a link between the limescale in hard water and our skin problems, since about half of UK lives in a hard water area (we live in London and it's pretty well known that we have maybe the worst water in UK)
So I reasearched and finally decided to get a water softener from EW Technologies last April.
I have to say THE DIFFERENCE IS MINDBLOWING! The last time I remember itching was in May, and not only is the itching gone but my skin doesn't feel dry after a bath, and even my hair feels silkier. To think all that white limescale scum was actually ending up on my body...
I only wish I had done this years ago, I don't know why everyone's not talking about this.
So there you go.
Does anyone else have a water softener installed?
