Is hard water causing my acne breakouts?

You eat right, sleep eight hours every night, drink more than eight glasses of water a day, and wash your face regularly. However, those pimples and blemishes on your skin still won’t give in. If you are wondering why you’re still having acne breakouts despite doing so much to prevent it, the reason may lie somewhere you might least expect it: hard water.

High levels of minerals in water, referred to as hard water, could make it difficult for your skin to react properly with soap. Because hard water cannot wash off soap completely, it may accumulate and create a layer of soap scum on the surface of the skin. The soap debris can clog the pores, causing acne to develop. In some cases, skin irritation and redness may also occur.
