Why pH level of your cleanser is important
Dermatologists worldwide claim that most common skin problems like dryness, acne, redness, irritation and excessive oil occur when when your skin pH Level is off-balance. So what is pH (Potential of Hydrogen)? - It's the acidity level of the skin.
Our skin's surface is naturally acidic, known as as the acid mantle. It's there to protect the outer layer of the skin from external threats. Repeatedly disturbing your skin's pH level with the wrong cleanser can lead to all kinds of problems.
How do I know my skin's pH balance is good? Depending on skin type, a level of 3.5 to 7 is typical, however these numbers don't mean anything to me unless it's specified on the label. You can of course visit a dermatologist or test by using a pH meter, but I understand that most of us won't actually do this regularly😝
Here is a simple way to find out: Do you suffer with any of the symptoms below?
- Does your skin feel dry and tight after washing?
- Do you moisturise your face just once a day?
- Do you have flaky rough patches?
- Are you prone to excessive oil and breakouts?
- Does your skin look red or sting after applying cream?
Simply switching to a cleanser with a Low pH will keep your skin naturally stronger, allowing it to defend itself, while reducing the risk of irritation. I do believe the most important element of a good skincare routine is cleansing. At Kskin we've tested a number of cleansers and found Pyunkang Yul Low pH Pore Deep Foam comes in at the top of it's class.
The Low pH ensures your skin remains balanced while effectively removing sebum and skin impurities deep inside the pores. Combining fine cleansing particles with soft and mildly acidic bubbles it gives your skin a deep gentle clean whilst calming irritation. A big thumbs up from Kskin!!
