If you’re doing everything right in your skincare routine but aren’t seeing the results you want, the answer might be in the pH scale. So what is pH scale?
pH is a scale measures acidity and alkalinity. 0 is the most acidic and 14 the most alkaline, while 7 (which is where water falls) is neutral. Skin’s natural pH is around 5, which is slightly acidic. It supports growth of the skin’s natural bacteria and fungus, which is necessary for proper skin health. It also helps to minimize skin problems like eczema, psoriasis, chronic dry skin. When your skin goes from acidic to alkaline, it doesn’t function as well. The skin cannot protect itself, resulting in dryness, irritation, and itching,
So what’s making skin more alkaline? The biggest mistake with skin care is washing with the wrong cleansers, which strips the barrier away.
