Reasons For Itchy Skin And How To Cure It Completely || Ecowell India
Your savior is here!
Ever found yourself in the midst of a meeting or an interview where you are trying to create an impression but then you suddenly have an urge to scratch yourself and it is so distracting that you give in? (Sigh). Itchy skin is infamously considered a sign of unhygienic conditions and it could be really embarrassing besides being uncomfortable and sometimes even painful to scratch yourself in public.
Our skin is prone to several problems owing to the increase in pollution in the environment as well as an unhealthy lifestyle that many of us are found to be living; be it due to negligence or ignorance of practicing healthy lifestyle habits. One such condition is itchy skin. But itchy skin can be due to various reasons. Sometimes it is because of an underlying skin condition or skin disorder, or it could also be due to other internal disorders like cirrhosis, leukemia, kidney dysfunction, etc. One could also have an allergy. In such cases, when itching gets severe and you are unable to identify the cause, it is recommended to consult a doctor.
However, a more commonly found reason for itchiness is dry skin. Besides naturally having a dry skin type, there are other factors too that contribute in making your skin even drier; and while we cannot control the type we are born with, we can certainly change other conditions to improve the situation.
It is recommended to consume an ample amount of water to keep oneself hydrated and consequently their skin. We thus manage to control the quality of water that we take in by using relevant water-purifying products. But do you know how important it is to monitor how we treat our skin externally? Yes, you do. We see a lot of advertisements talking about the contribution of soaps in drying up your skin, and the wonderful ladies on the screen suddenly display a flawlessly supple and smooth skin giving all the credits to the change of soap. Soaps and moisturizers, thus, are where most of us direct our focus towards. However, there is another secret ingredient that these beautiful ladies do not let out; which when added to your shower routine gives assured results in improving the texture of your skin and thus saving you from the torment of itchiness. It is right under your nose- your tap water! Yes!!
Many cities in India including Bangalore, have areas that receive hard water which contain high content of inorganic materials that are considered to be ‘detrimental to one’s wellbeing'. Hard water, containing minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron, etc. is seen to be quite tough on one’s skin. That calcium there, is needed by your bones and not by your skin -where it settles and hinders your pores from releasing the body’s natural oils that help keep the skin moisturized. Thus, you end up having dry, flaky skin with rashes and itchiness. One is prone to developing the condition of eczema by the use of hard water too, and you surely do not want that.
What should you do then?
It is thus imperative for us to treat our tap water before using it. Our team at Ecowell has taken it upon itself to help you out with this by introducing a range of water softeners.
