    Thanks..lamme,

    Thanks for sharing this useful post .it is very informative about the PH. It helps to test the pH of that product with an Alkazone pH testing strip.

    I have a question. So if water has a ph of 7, when we wash our faces, even if the cleanser we use is inside of the healthy skin ph range, we can actually still be altering the ph of our skin, isn't it? And really, water is used with pretty much every type of cleanser, no matter if it's foaming, lotion, cream, oil, etc.

    No It can be irritating because is Alkaline, not Acidic, because it has a very high PH it's very drying. Witch Hazel is an astringent for oily skin so it's alkaline. Glad to help!

Keep your skin acidic. Witch Hazel is an alkaline, anything drying to the skin means its alkaline. Make sure you use a good toner that is PH balanced instead of Witch Hazel.

    Does PH help with aging of the skin?

    If you want to purchase locally a health store may have them, as well as a pool, or fish supply store.

    I use the paper strips whats important is the range. Get this ranges and you will be fine.......

    pH-Fix 2.0 - 9.0
    Range: 2.0 - 2.5 - 3.0 -3.5 - 4.0 - 4.5 - 5.0 - 5.5 - 6.0 - 6.5 - 7.0 - 7.5 - 8.0 - 8.5 - 9.0
