"My skin has been so dry!"
Blissoma founder Julie Longyear appeared on Show Me St. Louis on Friday to discuss timely tips to help your skin survive the winter in happy, hydrated condition. The products you use in your morning skincare routine can make a big difference in your skin's hydration all day long. Use these 3 natural skincare tips and you'll be happy even when cold winds are howling.
1. Pay attention to Ph when cleansing.
Using a soap-based cleanser can throw off skin's Ph and leave it feeling dry and aggravated. Skin has a natural Ph of around 5.5 which is acidic. Soap is alkaline at a Ph of approximately 9 or 10 usually. Instead of soap use a natural, non-soap based cleanser like Free Rejuvenating Herbal Gel Cleanser or Fresh Mild Rice Cleanser which has an acidic Ph like skin. This leaves the skin's acid mantle intact. Disruption of the acid mantle can cause problems including dehydration and even acne for some people. You'll notice less tightness and discomfort to the skin when you use a natural, Ph correct cleanser.
