The Effects of Soaps On Your Skin

posted by Lissa Logan

The skin is a masterpiece.

Mother Nature designed it with several different acids to ensure that bacteria do not get in.

Which is why it’s very important to have the right kind of cleanser for your skin type.

Soap manufacturers often label their products as “pH balanced.” But what does that mean?

Too much acidity or alkalinity can disrupt the acid mantle, (your skin’s barrier) causing it to be much more susceptible to damage and dryness.

Mild skin care soaps are more alkaline and can really dry out your skin, compromising its ability to effectively do its job.

This is also true with hand soaps. That’s why your hands dry out after use.

Your cleanser needs to be alkaline enough to remove dirt and make-up, but not cause dryness.

The skin is always changing. That means that as you grow older, the pH changes, too. There are some skin conditions that raise the level of alkalinity, like eczema and dermatitis. That’s where we come in!

If you feel your skin care just isn’t performing the way it used to, it’s time to get a professional skin analysis.

Our highly trained aestheticians will match the right cleanser for your skin type. And that means balanced and glowing skin!
