How “Mild” Soaps Wreck Your Skin By Lavish Skin – Call Us On 03 5762 8404
Your skin is a work of art!
It has been specially designed by Mother Nature with several different acids to make sure that nasty bacteria are not absorbed.
That’s why it’s so important to have the right kind of cleanser for your skin type. So-called mild skin care soaps are more alkaline.
These really dry out your skin, compromising its ability to effectively do its job.
What Is pH Balanced?
Soap manufacturers will often label a product as “pH balanced.” But what is the pH? Unless that information is given, the claim is just a marketing ploy.
It’s like saying your automobile gets good gas mileage. Well, what exactly is good gas mileage?
Too much acidity or alkalinity can disrupt the acid mantle, (your skin’s barrier) causing it to be much more susceptible to damage and dryness.
This is also true with hand soaps. That’s why your hands dry out after use. Your cleanser needs to be alkaline enough to remove dirt and make-up, but not cause dryness.
Skin is ever changing. That means that as you age, the pH changes, too. Some skin conditions actually raise the level of alkalinity, like eczema and dermatitis. That’s where we come in!
If you feel your skin care just isn’t performing the way it used to, it’s time to get a professional skin analysis with us.
Our highly trained aestheticians will match the right cleanser for your skin type. And that means balanced and glowing skin!
