[10 ways to balance the pH of your skin] Part 2 **Wash your face with lukewarm water**

Hot water tends to strip your skin of its natural oils and can throw off your pH balance. Washing your face with lukewarm water is gentle on your skin and helps maintain pH levels.

Below is information about the relationship between skin pH and the skin's resident bacteria.

Skin pH is measured using an acidic or alkaline scale, and is usually slightly acidic. The pH of the skin ranges from approximately 4.7 to 5.75, which helps maintain the skin's protective functions and strengthens its barrier function. (Delicate zones are highly acidic to prevent bad bacteria from entering from outside.) A slightly acidic pH prevents the growth of bad bacteria and promotes the growth of good bacteria.

Various types of bacteria exist on the surface of the skin, and these are called "common bacteria." These resident bacteria play an important role in maintaining healthy skin. When your skin's pH is balanced, these resident bacteria are more likely to function properly. A slightly acidic environment prevents the growth of harmful bacteria and fungi, while also helping beneficial bacteria thrive.

However, external factors or using the wrong skin care products can disrupt your skin's pH. This can disrupt the balance of resident bacteria and cause skin problems. Proper skin care and attention to pH can help maintain skin health and support the balance of resident bacteria.
