Take the First Step toward Harmony with pH Balanced Skin Care

There seems to exist, for everyone, an ever-present effort toward achieving a balanced life. We are constantly striving to, as they say, ‘have it all’; the perfect-in-every-way partner, a successful career, credit cards with zero balance, boundless energy, flawless, no-need-for-makeup-skin and 2.2 healthy well-adjusted children, running around a yard, surrounded by a proverbial white picket fence. Well, while this kind of big picture American Dream is worth striving for, sometimes we lose sight of the much smaller picture. Stability in your life is attainable and it begins with you. A healthy, balanced mind and body is the cornerstone to having it all. To maintain a healthy, balanced body, it’s important to understand how your equilibrium gets thrown off every single day. Here’s where pH balance comes in. You probably learned all about pH back in middle school science class, but I bet you didn’t realize that your body and skin’s pH balance is a vital factor in feeling well and looking great. Nourishing your internal organs with a pH-balanced diet, as well as nourishing your skin, your largest organ, with pH balanced skin care products promotes a healthier you, giving you a strong foundation from which to build the coveted, balanced life.

What the Heck Is pH Balance and Why Is it So Important, Anyway?

natural pH-balanced skin care products Scientifically speaking, pH, stands for, ‘potential of hydrogen’. Now, I can get all, ‘Bill Nye the Science Guy’ on you, and spell it all out in chemical detail, but if I do, I’m pretty sure you’ll fall asleep. So, just know this: pH measures levels of acidity or alkalinity (the opposite of acidity), and your body and skin operate at their optimum health when their pH is at their proper respective balances. Eating a healthy pH-balanced diet wards off all kinds of ailments. In the same way, using natural pH-balanced skin care products maintains the skin’s protective armor (the acid mantle) for nourished, even-toned, and youthful looking skin.

For pHabulous Skin, Don’t Make this Common Mistake!

The thin fluid layer of your skin that protects it from damage, aging, bacteria and the environment is the acid mantle. In order for this layer to operate at peak performance, its pH needs to be at a healthy, balanced level; not too acidic and not too alkaline, but like Goldilocks’ porridge – just right! The biggest mistake you can make is to cleanse or moisturize your skin with harsh chemicals, most of which have a very high pH that strip away the protective acid mantle, leaving it vulnerable to infection and giving rise to bacteria and environmental oxidation, which causes skin damage and speeds up the aging of your skin. No over-the-counter products can adequately maintain calm, poised, resilient skin like the mild and natural antiaging skin care products from IHT.
