Skin Care - Look Young Forever By Keeping Your Acid Mantle Healthy

Skin care and acid mantle-
What is acid mantle and why it is important for healthy skin?
We all hear so much about pH-balanced products. How do they affect acid mantle? And how do we look young?
If you know how to take care of the protective acid mantle, you have won half the battle. Let me tell you how?
Skin oils and acid mantle-
Skin secretes sebum and sweat. Both of these combine to create a protective film on the skin, which is called acid mantle. The mixture is acidic and its pH is between 4 to 5.5. Because of this acidity of this film, bacteria get killed and cannot attack the skin. Bacteria love alkalinity and the acid keeps them away. The acid mantle also protects skin from losing its moisture. If we strip the acid mantle away that can cause a lot of damage to our young looking skin.
Skin acid mantle- how do we strip it?
We strip the acid mantle by using alkaline soaps and cleansers. Sun exposure also strips the acid mantle. Those who have little oily skin are in a great rush to remove all the skin oils and manage to strip the oily acid mantle away. This exposes skin not only to bacteria but also the chances of triggering eczema etc. increases substantially.
Acne and acid mantle-
Many of those who have acne wash their face frequently. As a result they dry their skin totally. The
acne may not go
away, but the protective acid mantle surely goes away exposing the skin to more infections. Keep a healthy acid mantle on the skin and protect yourself. Use AHA mixed cleansers to maintain the acidity of the skin and use pH balanced products to keep skin young forever.
