While this site, if you can’t tell by the domain name and the content we’ve filled it with, is mostly dedicated to topical creams you apply to the neck area for their anti-aging properties, we also believe in total body wellness outside of just buying effective skin care products. One of the most basic things you can do for your body – both inside and out – is nourishing yourself with clean water.
We know, we know, you’ve heard it a million times before. Make sure you drink enough water. Get your eight glasses per day. It’s liking beating a dead horse – you know it already. But many people take water for granted and also overlook the importance of making sure the water that they are drinking – and bathing in – is clean.
Importance of Clean Water
If your cold water smells like rotten eggs, do you really want to be drinking it or taking a shower or bath in it? Of course not! Just as rotten as it smells, it’s doing even more rotten things inside your belly and on your skin. We can’t overstate how crucial it is that the water coming out of your tap is to your health.
There are a number of things that you can do to make sure that you have safe water in your household. Of course, if you want to be spendy, you can just go with water bottles all the time, but that begins to add up over time. There are cheaper ways to do that. You can get a Brita filter that goes in your fridge and you simply fill it up, it goes through a filtration system, and then you have clean water to drink. They also have attachments that go on your faucet that filters the water as it comes out.
That solves the problem of the water that you drink, but what about what comes out of the showerhead or bathtub faucet? You’re not going to fill up a pitcher a hundred times to fill up the bathtub just so you can soak. What you can do is get a whole house water filtration system. This is a more expensive option when buying the hardware and getting it installed, but it will filter your water at the central source at your house and send clean water through every plumbing fixture in the entire household.
With a household filtration system, you’ll have clean water to drink and for hygiene. Even better, it will help reduce maintenance costs in the house as it helps prevent corrosion in the plumbing system that comes from having hard or dirty water. It’s a win-win in that regard.
Tieing it back to the point of this post, and this site – when you have clean water to drink, your body is more nourished, and when you’re drinking enough water it will show in your skin. It’s a great way to keep that skin on your neck from getting saggy and loose. Just a little food for thought!
