*pH, which is an actual acid-base reaction, indicates that citrus fruits such as lemons and limes are acidic. Citrus fruits contain citric acid and potassium citrate, which are the main causes of acidity in fruit juice. Therefore, the fruit itself is acidic.

However, due to metabolic and digestive processes in the body, the food you eat can become acidic or alkaline in your body. For example, lemons and limes are said to have an alkaline effect when metabolized in the body. This is because even if you consume acidic foods, the residue becomes alkaline through metabolism.

Simply put, fruits themselves are acidic, but due to their metabolism in the body, even acidic foods can contribute to the overall acid-alkaline balance. However, this varies from person to person and depends on your diet and physical condition.

If you combine these methods and develop a habit of adjusting your skin's pH balance, it will be easier to maintain healthy and beautiful skin.
