It's time to treat skincare
More like healthcare
The pH of a healthy skin surface ranges from pH 4.5 to pH 5.5, which is slightly acidic compared to other natural elements, but necessary to help inhibit the growth of bacteria and skin-damaging allergens. Over time, environmental factors like pollution, temperature change, UV light and even sweating can affect the condition of the skin. Skin pH fluctuations can affect the natural enzymes in the skin, causing dry skin, scaly and flaky skin. Higher levels of skin pH are evident in skin with eczema and can lead to increased bacteria growth, which may cause infections.
CARE & TREATMENT
A good daily skincare regimen is crucial to maintain the ideal pH balance and overall health of skin. Most soap has a higher pH level than skin’s surface pH, which can lead to dryness, itchiness and flaking over time. Gentle and soap-free cleansers are ideal for keeping your skin’s pH levels in balance. Also look for moisturizers that strengthen and support your skin’s protective barrier.
