- Priced at £79.99, Vitaclean HQ claims to eliminate up to 98 per cent of chlorine

If you feel like you've road-tested every anti-ageing cream on the market, you may want to turn your attention to your shower.
A newly-launched filter system promises to help banish wrinkles by softening hard water and dispensing antioxidants while you wash.
Priced at £79.99, makers of the Vitaclean HQ claims the device can eliminate up to 98 per cent of chlorine while dispensing anti-ageing vitamin C onto the skin.
The 'pioneering' portable shower head, which attaches directly to the pipe via a wall mount, was created by two 28-year-old friends from London in a bid to tackle their beauty woes.
Former model Kristina Velkova and tech start-up expert Sara Douglas discovered that hard water was drying out their skin and leaving their hair brittle.
Their youth-boosting shower head, available from vitacleanhq.com, contains aroma oils to enhance relaxation, while optimising water pressure and reducing water consumption by up to 25 per cent.
It also features a microfibre filter cloth designed to trap rust, dirt and other contaminants collected through water piping systems.
Vitamin C is a naturally occurring antioxidant proven to boost the production of collagen, which can help with the appearance of everything from fine lines to crow's feet and even enlarged pores.

Speaking to MailOnline FEMAIL about their creation, Kristina and Sara said: 'After spending most of our earlier twenties travelling and working in various cities and countries, we picked up on a recurring problem: hard chlorinated water was making our skin dry and our hair very brittle.
'We looked into easy-to-install shower water filtration systems only to discover that majority were expensive and hard to install and non-friendly to the renters.'
