Mommy Life – My Battle To Save My Daughter From Skin Rashes Caused By Hard Water

I never knew that hard water can dry out the skin until it happened with my 3-month-old daughter. I used to bathe her with mild baby wash and applied moisturizer twice a day. Still, I could see the redness on her skin. I changed the moisturizer, visited pediatrician but it was of no use. One day, while talking to my sister I discussed my daughter’s skin and she asked me to check the quality of tap water. I looked up online and booked a free Kent water test. I was shocked to know that I was bathing my daughter with hard water every day.

Kent Water Softeners Review

What is Hard Water? Is hard water bad for baby skin?

The presence of excess minerals such as calcium and magnesium in water makes it hard. Hard water has an alkaline pH and bathing your baby with hard water may disturb the pH level of your baby’s skin.

When mixed with soap, hard water forms a sticky layer, ‘soap scum’, which can dry out a baby’s sensitive skin leading to rashes. According to a study, hard water when used on babies increases the chances of rashes by 87%.

How I dealt with my baby’s skin problem

I discussed this problem with my neighbors who recommended that I buy a water softener. The water softeners exchange salts of calcium and magnesium with sodium to convert hard water into soft water. Soft water also helps in generating extra lather for superior and brighter washing of clothes.

I researched online for the best available water softener and chose KENT. The product installation was seamless and within 15 days, I could see the dry patches and redness on her skin fading away.

One Product, Many Benefits!

The other changes which we experienced after installing the KENT Water Softener

Since the day we installed a hard water softener in our home, the other noticeable changes which we experienced are less hair fall and brittleness in hair just shooed away. Despite having a healthy diet, proper sleep and using a good shampoo and conditioner, I was experiencing excessive hair fall and my hair would break often. But when I started washing my hair with soft water, I experienced less hair fall and even the texture of my hair has transformed. The harmful contents present in the hard water damage the hair and lead to excessive hair loss. I am so glad that we have found one solution to many problems in the form of KENT Water Softener.

  • Takes care of clothes and fabrics

  • Increases the life span of appliances

    1. A very informative post, Neha. Most of the times we tend to ignore water as the main reason behind skin ailments and other water related diseases. Having water softener is probably the need of the hour in most places.

  5. I studied btech from Rajasthani and it is known for its hard water. I had some major hairfall when I started washing my hair with ro water. So yes it works big time. Water softener are must in homes these days. Thank u for enlightening me about the baby skin fact.

  6. Water softeners and RO plants are imperative these days. Particularly in places like Noida where it is not only hard water but also stinks at times.

  7. Water is hard in the area where I live. Didn’t know that it is the culprit behind my dry skin. Thanks for the info.


  8. We are using the same technology based device in Pune as we face the similar hard water problems. My mother has very sensitive skin and it’s even affecting digestion. Hope to see a change soon.

  9. This is my personal experience and I love Kent RO. We live in hills and the water here is contaminated most of the times. After using KENT, we have never faced any ailments. Of course, we also boil the water after taking from KENT. Great post, happy Alexa month!

  10. Quite an informative post. My son used to get skin rashes but I never thought hard water could have been a factor. #thatchedroofreads #MyFriendAlexa

  11. I can easily relate with these skin rashes due to hard water.Faced same problem when I was in Pune.metro cities are the major victims of this problem. Very informative and alert post.

  12. nice, informative post. the quality of water definitely has a direct bearing on health and this makes it mandatory to be aware of the quality parameters such as TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) and hardness. Thanks for the detailed analysis and insight !

  13. I have a Kent R.O at home and it works well. Dirty water is the root cause of all diseases. And when it comes to baby safety, water must be purified properly. useful & informative post!

  14. I used to stay in a hostel when I did my B-Tech from IIT BHU Varanasi. We had this hard water problem there. And quite a few of my friends lost all their hair and became permanently bald. This really happened. It was a major problem and many of us used to get our heads shaven so that we at least did not face that problem of hair loss. I don’t know how things are now but I am speaking of the eighties. Your article brings to light one of the major problems our country faces with respect to water.

  15. After reading this the question that loomed in my mind was why cant we drink straight out of tap water like in so many other countries? Have we polluted our water sources beyond redemption. Also what is the environment cost of running a RO plant?

  16. I grew up in Dehradun where the water is very hard. I wish we had water softeners back then too!! Thank you for this post. Hopefully can save the skin and hair now!!

  17. Nice and informative post , it’s true that hard water causes some problems like hair fall , dry skin etc.
    Will check this service now .

  18. Hey Neha,
    Hard water is really harmful. It not leads to the skin rash but also creates other complications too like hair fall, constipation, dry skin, etc. But thankfully, the brands like Kent has come up with some really worth using water softeners for us.

    Great post.

  19. I wonder if this technique of softening water is wasteful of water? In any case it is a sad commentary that we have to resort to these means to treat water even for bathing purposes let alone drinking.
    BTW … any disclosures regarding conflict of interest by the author of this post?

  20. In the times we live , its crucial to take measures to keep our water clean and safe; i have myself suffered a great hair loss ! And thankyou for highlighting all the benefits of installing Kent at home

  21. Clean and safe water is crucial for a safe and healthy living. I like how you have mentioned about all the important aspects of water purification.

  22. Very informative post here. I use hard water only as I do not municipal water. I wonder how economically viable it is? I would love soft water for my falling hair.

  23. I wasn’t aware of these problems with hard water. I will register for the water test to check the quality. Kent has really brought some innovative products to the market.

  24. I have lost almost half my hair due to hard water in Kolkata. Only recently I have started using softened water for washing it and can see the results effectively.
    Nice Informative post

  25. This Is definitely a very insightful post an eye-opener for most of us and water purifiers are an absolute necessity and not a luxury anymore

  26. Oh my God yes! Water softener is a boon for great hair. The salon I go to has invested in one and it’s a major plus point. So glad that your daughter’s skin rashes disappear too. Pure water is way too vital

  27. Hairfall due to hard water in Bangalore is such a issue. I am personally fed up with it as other like me. This was such a nice post to raise awareness on other issues caused by hard water

  28. We always knew hard water is really bad but your post really explained the extent of it. Will try this water softener if we get hard water in our tap. Thanks.

  29. Oh my god! I had no clue about it how hard water could be causing rashes. I frequently travel and have faced rashes many a times. I used so many creams for the rashes. I wish I had read this before. #damurureads #myfriendalexa

  30. I live in Bangalore and needless to say, the water quality is extremely poor. I guess it’s high time for me to invest in a water softener too! It may be the answer to my hair-fall problem. Not to mention the fact that muy clothes will probably thank me too by lasting longer. Your post was really informative. Glad to know that your daughter is safe from all those rashes. Thanks for sharing your experience so that we could be aware of the cons of hard water. 🙂

  31. One thing I would like to add is to storing the wastewater released from Aquaguard. This can be used to water plants and other household activities. If every house starts doing this we can save huge amount of water. Especially apartments can make use of this and give stored water to clean common areas, wash cars etc.

  32. Gosh! I didn’t know hard water was so harmful for my family and me. I just registered for the Water Checkup. Keep writing such informative posts! Thank you! #DiaryOfAnInsaneWriter #MyFriendAlexa

  33. Water issues in Punjab is also a big issue and this has affected water purifier also. we need to take service for our purifier after every two months. I was in search of a good purifier and thanks to you that i got some.
