A number of studies have shown us that our tap water can be contaminated with chemicals. What are these chemicals doing to your skin? You splash it on to rinse your face, but you also spend hours a week showering and bathing in it. Over a period of years, your skin could be exposed to a lot of chemicals simply because you wash regularly. Is there a way to protect yourself, outside of investing a mint into distilled water? Fortunately, there is.
