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.
