[10 ways to balance your skin's pH]

Part 1: **Use a weakly acidic facial cleanser**

Strong alkaline cleansers tend to disturb the pH of your skin, so it's best to choose a mildly acidic cleanser. Choose products that are gentle on your skin and avoid over-washing your face.

The pH of your skin generally ranges from slightly acidic to neutral. Skin pH is mainly affected by sebum and sebum secreted by sweat glands, and it also varies slightly depending on different areas. Healthy skin's pH ranges from approximately 4.7 to 5.75. Below are some points regarding skin pH.

  1. **Mildly acidic barrier:**

- Healthy skin maintains a slightly acidic state. This slightly acidic property maintains the skin's barrier function and protects it from harmful microorganisms and external stimuli.

  1. **Effect of sebum:**

- Sebum coats the skin surface and maintains a slightly acidic state. The T-zone (forehead, nose, chin), which produces a lot of sebum, usually has a lower pH and is more acidic than other areas.

  1. **Cleaning agent notes:**

- Using strong alkaline cleansers and soaps can disrupt your skin's pH. When washing your skin, it is important to choose a mildly acidic facial cleanser or use products that are gentle on your skin.

  1. **Effect of ultraviolet light:**

- The skin's pH can be disturbed when it is affected by UV rays and the external environment. UV rays increase the acidity of your skin, which can cause skin problems.

  1. **Importance of moisturizing:**

- Moisturizing the skin contributes to pH stability. When your skin is dry, its acidic barrier is more likely to break down. Make sure to properly moisturize.

  1. **Considering product pH:**

- The pH of the skin care products and cosmetics you use is also important. Those that are as acidic as your skin or slightly more acidic are considered gentle to your skin.

  1. **Individual differences:**

- The pH of the skin differs from person to person. It may vary depending on genetic factors, lifestyle, age, etc.

Skin pH plays an important role in barrier function and skin health. To stabilize your skin's pH, it's important to wash your face gently, moisturize properly, and use products that suit your skin.
