What Is A Low pH Toner And Why Is It Good For Your Skin?

It may be the answer to scoring a blemish-free complexion.

Toners are essential after washing your face, as these take care of lifting leftover buildup on the skin. You're probably familiar with alcohol-free and anti-blemish ones, but have you ever heard of low pH toners? 

Quick science lesson: pH levels cover 1 to 14, and 7 is considered neutral. A number above 7 is considered alkaline, and anything below 7 is acidic.

Every time you wash your face, your skin gets into an alkaline level, which disrupts oil-moisture balance. This phenomenon dries out the surface and triggers excess sebum. To combat this, you must restore your complexion's pH to 5.5 (the optimal level of health) with an acidic or low pH toner.
