There’s one condition to blame for everything from zits to wrinkles, but most women don’t even know they’re suffering from it: an out-of-whack pH level. The fix: Let’s determine your skin’s status so you can even things out–and score a radiant complexion with pH Balanced Skin.
Let me explain—in case you snoozed through pH day in chemistry class: Introduced back in the early 1900s, pH stands for “potential hydrogen” and is used to describe the acid-alkaline ratio of a substance, which ranges from 0 (the most acidic) to 14 (the most alkaline).
Why should this mean anything to you? Because the health of your body and skin—is directly linked to maintaining the right balance between acidity and alkalinity.
To work best, the skin should be slightly acidic, at a 5.5 pH balance. When it’s too alkaline, skin becomes dry and sensitive; you may even get eczema. You may also experience inflammation, pimples, dry skin,which inhibits the skin’s ability to ward off these conditions.
The sad thing is almost all cleansers and toners bought in a drug store are alkaline which causes many of the problems mentioned above. We tested 6 of the drug store brands that were considered the best and they all failed the PH test. There range was 12-14 on the alkaline side and your skin should be between 4.5-5.5 on the acidic side of the scale.
