Shower Filter for Softer Skin

//Shower Filter for Softer Skin

Because I’m prone to eczema, I always have my eye out for things that keep my skin hydration up. This is why I got so excited when I discovered the Santevia Shower Filter. I have been thinking about getting a shower filter for some time now – after I read Kat James’ wonderful book “The Truth About Beauty”. But it wasn’t only the book itself that swayed me, it was the many online reviews of James praising this particular tip.

The logic makes sense, using a filter will reduce the chlorine and heavy metals from our bathing water and help to stop dry our skin out. But laziness gets the best of us, and I always felt like getting a filter would mean I’d have to figure out how to disassemble my pluming and so have always put it off. But when I bought a bunch of these filters for our store I knew I would have to put one in just so I could have better product knowledge for my job. And after a quick Youtube watch (I don’t know what I did before Youtube – it also helped us understand how to tear down our spray tan booth), I found that it was actually easy peasy lemon squeezey.

I’m so glad for it too, because even after my first shower with the filter on I felt less dry and didn’t have to rush to apply my body oil. And now that its been two weeks since having it in, my skin has been better able to withstand the harsh, Canadian winter. So, if you’re like me and have sensitive skin that dehydrated during this depleting season, try out a Santevia shower filter – its a tip I wish I had taken years ago.

    I have been showering with filtered water for years now because it has made such a difference in my skin and hair. My daughter is also prone to eczema and since we started with the filtered showers she flares up much less often. I am a big fan of shower filters.

    WOW. I was looking for a review on this. I was pondering the effect of chlorine on the natural and healthy bacteria of the body- as I take a lot of baths and I just searched my local health food store’s website for a filtration product. I wanted to know if this really worked or if it was the whole snake-oil salesman thing but it sounds fantastic. I will definitely be picking one up and trying for myself! Thanks for putting this info out there!!

    I’m curious about this shower filter every time I’m at the Yorkville spa! Are you still liking it? I’m a student and have to be very picky with my money so I’d love to know if you would still recommend this for dehydrated skin and scalp..thanks!

      I do! But it depends on what your skin issues are and what you are using – because perhaps there is something else that an even better expense for you. There maybe another item that is a better use of your money based on your specific skin situation.
