[10 ways to balance the pH of your skin] Part 3 **Use of moisturizer**

Properly moisturizing the skin reduces oxidative stress caused by dryness and supports pH balance. Moisturizers keep your skin hydrated.

When choosing a moisturizer that supports pH balance, it's best to choose one that's made with skin-friendly ingredients and maintains a slightly acidic pH. It is also good if it contains ingredients that moisturize the skin and strengthen the barrier function.

Below are some general guidelines on how to choose and use a moisturizer that supports pH balance.

### 1. How to choose a moisturizer:

#### a. Choose additive-free or hypoallergenic products

- Check for irritating substances such as fragrances (excluding natural ingredients such as essential oils), synthetic dyes, and alcohol.

#### b. Choose one that contains ingredients that maintain a slightly acidic pH.

- Ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramide, urea, fucoidan, and PGA improve the skin's ability to retain moisture and support pH balance.

#### c. Choose the one that suits your skin type

- It is important to choose products that suit your skin characteristics, such as dry, oily, or sensitive skin. For people with dry skin, we recommend skin care with a lot of oil, for people with oily skin, we recommend skin care with less oil and refreshing skin care, and for people with sensitive skin, we recommend skin care with mild ingredients.

### 2. How to use:

#### a. Use on clean skin

- Moisturizers are most effective when applied to clean skin. It is most effective if you use it after washing your face and when there is still some moisture left.

#### b. Use an appropriate amount

- If you use too much, your skin may feel heavy. Take an appropriate amount and apply evenly.

#### c. Incorporate into your morning and evening skin care routine

- Incorporating a moisturizer into your morning and night skin care routine will help your skin stay hydrated throughout the day.

#### d. Be careful when combining with other skin care products

- By combining it with a mildly acidic facial cleanser, you can maintain pH balance in your overall skin care routine.

By finding a moisturizer that suits your skin condition and preferences and being careful about how you use it, you can support your skin's pH balance.
