Since the human body consists of mostly water, temperature and humidity changes in the environment cause a chemical change in our body. During winter, the combination of colder outside air and dry heat indoors puts additional stress on our skin.
The juxtaposition of winter weather and indoor heat is one culprit to tight and itchy skin, but it is not the only cause.
Chemicals added to water treatment systems, including chlorine, are a major reason for skin irritations. Chlorine strips your skin of the natural oils, causing cracking of the skin and drying out of hair.
The harmful effects of chlorine on our bodies is noticeable after swimming in a chlorinated pool, but do you know that chlorine is also flowing out of your faucets that ends up as chlorine gas floating in your home that you inhale?
A hot shower elevates the release of chemicals into a gaseous state, causing additional irritation to the eyes, lungs, skin and hair. These chemicals are absorbed through the pores of your skin and absorbed into the lungs, which can lead to more serious ailments.
“Chronic exposure [to the disinfection byproducts of chlorine] can cause liver and kidney cancer, as well as heart disease, unconsciousness, or death in high doses,” as stated on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_chlorination.
The very tangible effect of dry skin and brittle hair is an early sign of imbalance in our bodies.
