Hi Klevies! Have you ever noticed how a lot of skincare products claimed to be pH balanced? Did you know what pH is and why is everyone talking about it? Here we've summarized a brief explanation for you!
Potential hydrogen (pH) refers to the acidity of substances. The pH scale ranges from 1 to 14. A lower pH level (1-6) is considered acidic, 7 is a neutral pH scale, and a higher pH scale (8-14) is alkaline. As for the skin, the normal pH is around 4.7.
For your information, our skin has an acid mantle, a thin outermost layer that protects the skin barrier from damage. Healthy skin tends to have acidic pH and the more acidic, the higher skin's ability to fight harmful microbes and free radicals. Using the right products will help you to maintain the skin’s acidity.
So, what can we do to maintain a healthy and balanced skin pH? We’ll keep on discussing it!
Use a gentle cleanser
Using a pH-balanced cleanser can prevent skin damage or irritation caused by alkaline. Face cleanser with a more acidic pH scale also works better to fight acne which affects the pH balance of the skin.
Specially formulated to match natural skin pH (5.2-5.5), makes Kleveru Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Gel a skin barrier-friendly cleanser and it is definitely safe to use daily. Although it has a super cleaning ability, you don’t need to worry about irritating the skin because Kleveru Sea Buckthorn Cleansing Gel uses Houttuynia Cordata as a natural cleanser so it won’t overdry your skin.
Balance skin pH with toner
Used to nourish and replenish the skin freshness after face wash, toner can boost your next skincare benefits. Not forget, toners are also known for their ability to balance the healthy pH level of the skin.
Kleveru Sea Buckthorn Essence Toner is a combination of both essence and toner, formulated to match the skin's natural pH (5.5), it can help to cleanse the skin without causing any potential irritation. Containing real sea buckthorn grains in the texture, making this 2in1 Essence & Toner even richer in antioxidants that can increase collagen production, brighten the face, and fade acne scars. Also, Kleveru Sea Buckthorn Essence Toner is also equipped with 9 moisturizing ingredients which are great to maintain skin moisture.
Keep the skin moisture just right
The pH balance of the skin can be influenced by several factors, one of which is lacking in skin moisture. Regardless of your skin type, even those with oily skin need to use a daily moisturizer to protect the skin from damage to the skin barrier.
Multifunctional products like our favorite Kleveru Sea Buckthorn Day and Night Cream are the right choice for keeping moisture and maintaining a healthy skin barrier both daytime and nighttime. Using sea buckthorn as the main ingredient, these two moisturizers work well as brightening, calming the skin, accelerating the acne healing process, and making the skin look healthier and more supple.
Last but not least, don’t skip using sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage, especially if you do a lot of activities in areas exposed to the sun, Klevies.
So Klevies! Let’s maintain a healthy and balanced skin pH level together!
