pH stands for "potential hydrogen" and is used to describe the acid-alkaline ratio of a substance, which ranges from 0 (the most acidic) to 14 (the most alkaline).
Why is this important?The health of your body and skin is directly linked to maintaining the right balance between acidity and alkalinity.
"The skin's barrier, which is known as the acid mantle, is responsible for keeping in lipids and moisture while blocking germs, pollution, toxins, and bacteria.
To work its best, the acid mantle should be slightly acidic, at a 5.5 pH balance.
When it's too alkaline, skin becomes dry and sensitive; you may even get eczema. You may also experience inflammation.
Keeping the pH balance of your skin in the neutral zone means your skin is in the best possible condition for your spray tan.
