    this might sound odd but basically when i have a shower at home (i live near london) i find that the shower water makes me face all red, dry and tight. it also makes me hair all 'weird'. and i find that i cut my face when i shave at home. however since being at uni (manchester) ive found the water so much better. my skin looks good, and i just feel cleaner, if you know what i mean.

    now im guessing this is due to hardwater/limescale issues being different in the counrty. i was just wondering if anyone else has had these issues, and also any tips on how to comeback having a shower at home

    cheers for reading

    Yeah it's because of the hardness of the water. I always said the North was better! :P
    You can't really do anything when you go back home, unless you wanna carry a big tank of Northern water with you...
    Permanently moving North is your only solution

    Yeah, the water's probably softer where you go to uni.
    You can get shower filters like THESE, for example, to filter out all the undesirable stuff in the water. You could try that.

    Water up north is 'softer'.. And tastes better :ninja: Uhhh I noticed that when I last visited London for a week or so, when I had a shower, my hair seemed to be really rough and come out easier :lolwut:
