You spend hundreds of dollars on serums and creams, but only after you’ve scoured Google for ingredient lists and beauty reviews. But are you just as discerning with the water you splash on your face every morning and night?
The inspiration for this post was a Eureka moment that didn’t come from the skincare-obsessed me. Instead, it came from my sister, the, um, skincare-unobsessed one. On a trip to Malaysia, she insisted on washing her face with a huge bottle of distilled water. I thought that was unnecessarily decadent. I mean, washing your face only takes like 10 seconds for most of us. Does it matter that much?!
Well, newsflash, it does. If you’ve had persistent acne or irritated skin, your innocent cleansing routine with tap water may be the culprit.
