Adding a Water Filter is Good for Your Facial Skin (by Savannah Muncy, Ph.D)

Guest post by: Savannah Muncy, Doctor of Pharmacy Ph.D

When you look good, you feel good. Therefore, it is essential to take care of your facial skin. We all know this, what you may not know is what I’m about to share with you, keep on reading. 

Your skin provides a barrier of protection against potentially harmful external environments such as injuries, temperature fluctuations, chemicals, radiation, and infectious organisms [1]. Your external environments can really affect the health of your skin. For example, the sun’s rays can burn your skin, damaging it and causing wrinkles. And who wants that?

Well, water is also a very important for the health of your skin. Drinking water hydrates your skin, improving its elasticity, while washing your skin with water gets rid of impurities [2]. However, your tap water may contain chemicals like chlorine, fluoride, VOC’s and many others that are not so good for your skin. Most public water plants are treated with chlorine to kill waterborne bacteria, viruses, and parasites [3]. So that means you are exposed to chlorine each time you turn on your faucet to wash your hands, wash the dishes, brush your teeth, or take a shower. Although chlorine is beneficial by killing harmful pathogens, it can exert some negative effects on your skin, [4] especially if you have problematic or sensitive skin. Chlorine can cause skin irritations that can lead to acne, eczema, and rashes [4]. In addition, it can make your skin dry and itchy by stripping the natural oils from your skin [4].

polluted water harms delicate skin

Having said all that, making a simple change in your skin care routine like adding a water filter to your tap water can improve the health and appearance of your sensitive skin, protecting it from injury and premature aging. And taking care of your skin helps take care of the rest of your body.


Adding a water filter can purify your tap water by removing chlorine, other chemicals and impurities [5]. Filterbaby PRODermis water filters are designed just for that with up to a 99% chlorine removal rate and ability to remove contaminants as small as .2 microns. 


The main point is that your skin protects your face and great care should be taken when it comes to your face, where skin is thinnest and most sensitive. Although the water from your tap may be clean, it contains chlorine and other chemicals that are not so good for your skin. Try adding a water filter like Filterbaby to your tap water and experience the difference. Their convenience and ease of use along with their health and financial advantages make water filters the perfect investment when it comes to taking great care of your skin.
