Our Favorite pH-Balancing Skin-Care ProductsMarch 17, 2020
Who knew something we learned about in high school science class would one day relate to our love of skin care? OK, say that actually applies to a lot of things in the skin-care universe, but today we’re talking about your skin’s pH. Keeping your skin’s natural pH level balanced is an important part of maintaining healthy and happy skin. Anyone who’s ever had an acne flare-up due to an imbalance knows just how delicate it is — myself included.
When referring to pH, otherwise known as potential hydrogen, in terms of beauty, it refers to the level of alkalinity or acidity of your skin. Products have their own pH as well, which is why it’s so important to find ones that don’t disrupt your skin’s natural level. Keep reading to learn about a few of our favorite pH-balancing skin-care products to use daily.
