What if we told you that all those semesters of high school chemistry was about to pay off? What we’re talking about is the chemical balance of your skin--what it’s all about, why it’s probably off and how to naturally restore it.
Here’s your refresher: the pH scale measures the concentration of hydrogen from 1 to 14. Anything on the higher end of the scale is considered alkaline. Lower end of the scale? Acidic. So what does this have to do with your skin?
Alkaline vs. Acidic
Skin with a pH balance higher than seven is considered alkaline. Alkaline skin is usually described as drier, more brittle, more prone to breakouts and experiences more fine lines.
Most people’s ideal skin pH level for optimum protection is ever so slightly acidic at about 5.5. Skin at this pH level is often referred to as ‘plump’ or ‘glowing'.
What Causes Imbalance?
Dermatologists agree that the number one culprit of alkaline (AKA dry and wrinkled skin) is using harsh soaps to cleanse your face. It throws your skin out of whack and leads to premature signs of aging.
Other contributors include dust, sun damage, air conditioning, an unhealthy diet or hormone imbalance.
Cleanse, Balance, Hydrate
Now that you’ve had your refresher in all things pH, how can you bring balance to that pretty face of yours? Simple. Go natural. Adding natural fatty acids back into your skin is absolutely key to the process.
What magical natural product has the fatty acids it takes? That’s right….coconuts! All of Kopari’s straight-from-nature products balance your skin with naturally restorative antioxidants, vitamins and fatty acids.
