Unlocking Radiant Skin: The Power of Balanced Skin pH

Achieving beautiful, radiant skin requires more than just skincare products and treatments. It also hinges on a fundamental aspect often overlooked: your skin’s pH levels. At Santi London’s Skin Lab, we offer advanced skin pH measurement services to help you understand and optimize this crucial factor in your skincare journey.

What is Skin pH?

Skin pH refers to the measurement of acidity or alkalinity on the skin’s surface. It is expressed on a scale from 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral. When the pH level is below 7, the skin is considered acidic, while levels above 7 indicate alkalinity. The ideal pH range for healthy skin is slightly acidic, typically between 4.5 and 6.0.

Why is Measuring Skin pH Important?

Maintaining the correct skin pH level is vital for several reasons:

Barrier Function:

The skin’s acid mantle, a thin protective layer on the skin’s surface, acts as a barrier against harmful microorganisms. An optimal pH level helps this barrier function effectively, reducing the risk of infections and irritations.

Moisture Balance:

Balanced pH levels assist in regulating the skin’s moisture content. Proper hydration keeps the skin plump, soft, and youthful.

Acne Prevention: 

Acne-prone skin often has an elevated pH level. Measuring and controlling pH can help prevent acne breakouts.

Skin Disorders: 

Conditions like eczema and psoriasis are linked to imbalanced pH levels. Monitoring and adjusting pH can alleviate symptoms.

Product Efficacy: 

Skincare products work best within a specific pH range. Measuring your skin’s pH ensures your products are effective.

Factors That Can Aggravate Skin pH

Several factors can disrupt your skin’s pH balance:

Harsh Cleansers: 

Overly alkaline cleansers can strip away the skin’s protective acid mantle.


Excessive exfoliation can disrupt the skin’s pH and damage the moisture barrier.


Skin pH tends to rise as we age, making pH measurement more critical for mature skin.

Environmental Factors: 

Pollution, UV radiation, and extreme weather conditions can affect pH levels.

Enhancing Skin pH for Radiant Skin

Optimizing your skin’s pH is achievable with the right approach:

Gentle Cleansing: 

Use a mild, pH-balanced cleanser to cleanse your skin without disturbing its natural pH.


Keep your skin well-hydrated with moisturizers and serums designed to maintain pH balance.
