SKIN pH AND WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
Most of you have heard of the skins pH and that it’s important in your skins health. Now let’s get more specific and learn what pH refers to and why it’s important!
pH levels in your skin can help resolve or cause distress to your skin. When our skin fights infection or environmental stresses, its ability to combat these is affected by its pH level. When we ingest toxins via food or apply toxic skin care products, we impact our pH level and our skins’ natural ability to protect itself. As a result, our we experience irritation, dryness or acne or conditions such as dermatitis, eczema and rosacea.
The pH level of your skin refers to how acidic or alkaline it is. On a scale of 1-14, with 1 being the most acidic to 14 being the most alkaline, 7 is considered a neutral reading for your skin’s pH.
Our skin has a thin, protective layer on its surface, referred to as the acid mantle. If your pH is too alkaline or too acidic, the mantle is disturbed and skin conditions may result. For instance, cleansers and shampoos that use sodium laureth sulfate, which has an approximate alkaline pH level of 10 (very high) can be very drying and irritating to the skin. On the opposite spectrum, skin with overly acidic levels can be problematic and over strip natural oils which weakens the skins natural defenses. Ingredients such as alpha hydroxy acids, retinoic acid, beta hydroxy acids and amino fruit acids if not used properly can overly dry your skin and cause increased breakouts.
When using products, it’s important to understand how their acidic and alkaline levels will impact your acid mantle and pH balance to maintain healthy, vibrant skin.

WHAT IS MICRONEEDLING?
Microneedling is based on the use of tiny needles to create microchannels in the skin. The process stimulates your skin’s natural ability to heal itself, producing collagen and elastin. We use stem cells obtained from adult human bone marrow stem cell cultures.
When applied to the skin, the skin mimics the effect of having more stem cells (we lose most of them as we age so that by middle age only a small percentage remain compared to our youth). The serum supports cellular renewal and has potent regenerating properties to improve skin firmness, elasticity, and tone. Fine lines and wrinkles diminish over time and skin looks brighter, more luminous, and healthier.
$300 | 30 minutes
We cleanse, apply JLESSENCIALS ROSE COMPLETE RESTORATIVE FULL-SPECTRUM SERUM for a numbing effect, and use acupressure for relaxation. We then perform microneedling while applying stem cells to the skin. We finish by applying organic facial serum and lip and eye creme.
