What soap do you use and what do you use after it?
While the skin has a pH between 4 and 6.5, many big brand soaps are very alkaline, with pHs that range between 9 and 10. Soaps are typically alkaline to dissolve grease and dirt, but unfortunately it removes more. It also strips your skin of its natural acid mantle.
Harsh alkaline soaps can help to age your skin.
But no need to throw out the bar just yet. You can always help restore your skin’s natural pH balance with a toner.
Firming Facial Toner
People with extremely oily or acne-prone skin or those who want extra cleansing often look to toners, which remove the extra makeup and oils on your skin, while minimizing the appearance of pores.
Perricone Firming Facial Toner is a non-drying face toner, formulated not only to restore skin’s natural pH balance, but to help firm skin’s appearance with DMAE. DMAE also enhances facial contours and enhances the strength of other antioxidant properties.
The paraben-free formula also delivers antioxidant protection with Alpha Lipoic Acid, the ultimate antioxidant.
Alpha lipoic acid helps to:
- Diminish fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration
- Refine skin texture
- Reduce pore size, puffiness, imperfections, and uneven skin tone
