Do you care about the pH levels of your skincare products?

I assume most of the skincare junkies and lovers here are aware of how important the pH level of our skin is. But there are still some people who has no idea how to take care of our acid mantle (aka. our most outer layer of skin barrier). I personally would check out the pH level of the skincare products I purchase or use, because our skin is naturally slightly acidic, and products that are more alkaline will disrupt the acid mantle, therefore causing dryness or breakouts or anything we hate about our skin. The main problem is most products doesn't state their pH levels on the packaging, and Google sometimes doesn't help. Do you check out the pH levels of your skincare products? Or how do you layer your products to ensure it is a healthy mix of cocktail for your skin? Would love to hear more from you all on this topic 🥰

The only time it matters to me is cleansers every thing else is fine No point checking PH for products that are oil base too as PH strip measures water

yep, I agree with you! since I didn't stock any pH paper at home, so I just checked them before I purchase them, or if they were gifted, I checked before I use them. luckily, brands always mention the pH level of their products ^^

I don't have pH paper, but usually i would only do some research about the pH level, and even some of my cleanser already claim pH balance.
