Beauty Water is another type of water that can be produced by the Kangen Ionizer. With a slightly acidic pH of 4.0-6.0, this water is recognized for its astringent effects. It is terrific for gentle cleaning and of course, beauty care.
The skin is one of our body’s first lines of defense. It is slightly acidic with a pH of around 5.5, which is necessary to protect us against pathogens that contribute to aging and irritation. Unfortunately, majority of soaps are alkaline with a pH within the range of 9-10 (majority of shampoos are in the range of 6-7) and directly affect the pH of the skin. The increase of the skin pH irritates the skin’s protective layer, also referred to as the “acid mantle.” This results in the pathogenesis of skin diseases like irritant contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, ichthyosis, acne vulgaris, and candida albicans infections.
It’s for this reason that applying toner has been recommended as a part of the skin care routine. The role of toner is to balance out the skin’s pH level. Although there are some wonderful natural alternatives to toner, the majority of commercial toners are jam packed with harmful chemicals, just like the rest of beauty products.
Beauty water has the perfect pH range to care for skin. It can be used as a facial cleanser as well as a toner. Simply fill a spray bottle and spray a mist onto your skin after showering and leave it to dry. The astringent properties are effective in toning and firming your skin.
Not only is beauty water great for skin but for hair as well. Spray your hair after showering in replace of conditioner to reduce tangles and bring out a radiant shine.
