WHY IS ph balance IMPORTANT?
pH Balance acts both as a culprit and a form of salvation for most skin problems. Our skin’s barrier, also known as the acid mantle, works best at a slightly acidic 5.5pH balance. When it is at that ideal level, the skin can retain the “good oils” and moisture well while keeping out UV rays, pollution, toxins, and bacteria. However, when the pH leans too much to the alkaline side, our skin becomes dry and sensitive, occasionally resulting in flaking or eczema. Irritations can also strike during this period. This slows down the skin’s ability to ward off enzymes that can destroy collagen, thereby causing wrinkles and sagging. As for when the skin is overly acidic. Expect enlarged pores, blackheads, and acne.
SEARCHING FOR A BALANCED SKINCARE REGIMEN
1. First, begin with a mild, or pH 5.5, cleanser to ensure skin is cleansed gently but effectively. Avoid using soaps which lean to the alkaline side nor over wash your skin (water has a pH level of 7). Follow through with an alcohol-free toner to maintain the acid balance as well.
2. Including an essence such as our pH Balancing Essence will be tremendously beneficial. Not only does it hydrate skin and controls oil in the short run, but also slowly balances out the skin in the long run. After a few months, one should experience a smoother, softer, and more balanced skin texture.
3. Finally, use a hydrating moisturiser as a finishing touch. This keeps your skin remains constantly moisturised and improve its ability to repair itself against aggressions over the day.
By following through with these steps, achieving that balance will be a breeze.
