Maintaining Your Skin’s pH Balance—It’s All About Chemistry!

0 February 14, 2013 - Archive

Would you be surprised to learn that men have a greater need for skin-care regimens than women? Well, it’s true. Men have larger pores and a greater skin surface, giving environmental assaults more opportunities to attack. The irony, of course, is that too many men (and women) do not take the time to properly arm their skin’s natural defense.

Young Living’s A·R·T® Purifying Toner is a fast, easy, and reliable way to support your skin’s defenses. How? Well, it’s all about maintaining your skin’s natural chemistry—acid and alkaline. The ideal pH level of your skin is about 5.5. Preserving this pH level supports the acid mantle—a protective layer on your skin’s surface that defends against bacteria, combats dehydration, and maintains moisture.

Along with harsh weather conditions and environmental pollutants, cleansing your skin also affects your pH levels. In fact, your face may take up to an hour after washing to restore its natural pH. It’s during this time that your skin cells may be most vulnerable to external assaults.

Don’t leave your face defenseless! Use A·R·T Purifying Toner to help promptly restore your pH balance and natural pore recovery, as well as to remove all remaining impurities and prepare your skin for moisturizers. All these significant benefits result from mere seconds of your time, proving that chemistry not only matters but that it is quickly and easily accomplished.

    For some reason, when I first started using the A.R.T. skin care line, I never used the toner…. not sure why, just probably being lazy. Now that I’ve started using it, I’ll never stop! I really like how it helps minimize the pores and makes my skin feel really clean!

      Same here, when I started using the ART skin care line, I had a few extra toner bottles. I even gave one away. Now I use it and love it!!

    There isn’t a line for men . . . yet;), but it’s an excellent idea. I thought about your response and decided to do some “market research” . . . so, I asked my husband.

    I have to admit that it did take some convincing at the beginning, but I got him to clean, tone and moisturize his face. I was surprised when he said that he liked how his face felt and that he would use the products.

    When I mentioned the feminine packaging, he said that he didn’t care as long as the ingredients inside worked, even when traveling.

    Of course, this is just one man, but my suggestion would be to get him to try it. The products do make a difference!

    This article started out talking about men using this product. How do you get them to use it.. Is there a line for men. I know some who would like that look. Especially traveling. They would tend to use it in a package that looks masculine.
