Just when you think the weather feels like Summer, it gets rainy and gray and chilly and it’s Spring again. And then it’s hot again, and humid. Ugh! I swear, I have the hardest time figuring out what to wear these days. How about you?
Your skin is feeling the same way.
It reacts to the temperature, the moisture levels, the wind and most especially the sun. How can you help it cope? Well, by keeping your body in balance. Yes, it really is all about balance. Whether in our daily lives with work and home, or our diet, and absolutely, our skin!
Skin has a pH level of 5.5, which is slightly lower than the body and leans toward the acidic side. When the pH level gets out of balance, your body’s ability to resist bacteria and germs can diminish. This means that it is more prone to a variety of irritations and blemishes, If you have regular breakouts and oily skin, it is way too acidic. If you have chronic dryness and premature aging, you are way too alkaline. Remember, it’s all about balance.
If you suffer from these issues it’s important to know how to help balance the pH levels again. Keeping skin in good pH balance means knowing how acidic or alkaline different products are. Lucky for you our ScrubzBody™ Skin Care Products are all on the low acidic side. Why? Because of all the botanical oils! The essential fatty acids in these oils help keep the balance. Soaps made with natural oils will do the same thing. Avoid harsh cleansers and deodorant bars and anything that will strip away the natural oils. Botanical oils are your skin’s best friend. Make peace with them!
Now lets talk about water.
Yes, I went there. Your body is 50-65% water and it needs its daily dose. The rule is halve your body weight and drink that amount in ounces. Daily. Not only will your body feel incredible, but your skin will be plumper and fresher and clearer, too.
Eating the right foods helps overall nutrition, which helps create great skin too, but you want to eat foods that are more alkaline and less acidic.
Great tips. I especially think drinking water is important. I didn’t know the rule about half your body weight. Thanks.
