Your body’s overall pH level is about 7, so scientists consider the body to be basic. However, your skin’s pH is slightly lower at a level of about 5.5. This means that your skin is slightly acidic.
Most soaps and cosmetics are closer to 8-10 PH, which is alkaline.

You may never think about your cleanser's pH level. Many of today’s popular cleansers have higher pH from 9 to 12 and they can actually damage your skin, encouraging dryness, dullness, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles! Water has pH 7 which is considered the mid­point. When you are looking for the right cleanser, you'd better look for the mild cleanser which has the midpoint pH level. If your cleanser is too acidic, your skin will become very oily, greasy and not thoroughly clean; If your cleanser is too alkaline, your skin will become too dry and dull.Maintaining the correct pH balance is essential to minimizing problems with eczema, psoriasis, chronic dry skin and other common skin problems.

It’s important to balance your skin’s PH to the correct level because this slightly acidic environment is essential in protecting you from infection and disease. The acidic environment on your skin’s surface is your bodies first line of defense against the environment and is designed to keep your body’s largest organ in good shape.

When skin pH gets out of balance, your body’s ability to resist bacteria and germs lessens. This means that the skin is more prone to a variety of irritations, blemishes,  and dermatitis-related problems. If you suffer from these problems or are concerned that you’re going through premature aging, it’s important to know how to restore the natural pH of skin.

Keeping skin in good pH balance means knowing how acidic or alkaline different products are and choosing them based on whether they will help skin’s pH come close to the 5.5 ideal.
