Tap water contains different things in different parts of the world, and this sometimes affects skin and hair quality. When you go on holiday, you want to come back home glowing, with your skin looking sun-kissed, and fabulous. You don’t want to go back looking dull.
The tap water in Malta has a not so ideal mineral content, in fact, sometimes it is too salty to use to make tea in some parts of the island I’ve lived. At work, they all always use water from the water cooler to make tea.
Back to my main topic though, skin and hair: I actually know two ladies that have noticed that their hair gets more dull when they’re in Malta, and they notice more hair loss. They believe it’s the water, and I tend to agree.
So here is a list of things I use to help keep the glow in case the water is a bit harsh where I’m going.
I use this to remove makeup and cleanse my face. You can buy micellar water or micellar wipes. I swear by micellar wipes, I never want my supply to run out! I prefer wipes because they’re sort of 2-in-1, you don’t have to buy cotton, the wipes are enough. Time effective, coat effective, bam! When you use micellar water/wipes, you don’t have to use water on your face. I am not saying you never wash your face with water, haha, but that’s what the manufacturers say so you have the option.
Argan oil is great for treating dry skin and scalp. It makes hair look shiny and real healthy. It’s got Vitamin E and is a good moisturiser.
I’ve been having some concerns with my hair though, and it’s been breaking more than it should so I went to see a dermatologist. I want every bit of me to be healthy!
The dermatologist made some recommendations, and gave me a prescription. I am eager to see how one of the medicines she prescribed works. It’s called Regaine. I think in the US it’s called Rogaine. Anyway, it’s supposed to limit hair loss and help regrow my hair.
So if you seem to be having crazy hair loss, make an appointment with a good dermatologist. They’ll examine your scalp and give some professional advice.
