How To Balance Skin PH
|Beauty : Skincare|
First, what is skin pH? Well, pH refers to the balance of acid and alkali in your skin. That is, how acidic your skin is.
Naturally, your skin is slightly acidic: at around pH 5.5
Unfortunately many foods and skin treatments have the effect of changing our skin pH slightly and putting it out of balance. Soaps in particular are alkaline, and therefore this can increase skin pH above its natural levels.
The best foods to eat to keep skin pH at the right level are those that contain so called alpha-hydroxy acids.
Foods in this category include foods like apples, blackberries, any citrus food at all, and also tomatoes are a good source.
