How do hydrosols work to create healthy glowing skin?
Hydrosols contain active healing compounds that support the skin by balancing its pH and sebum production, hydrating the cells, soothing inflammation, and promoting skin cell regeneration.
Healthy youthful skin is actually slightly acidic, as the skin protects itself with acid. Normal skin pH levels average between 4.5-5.5, with oily skin being more alkaline and more susceptible to infection, and drier skin being more acidic and more prone to inflammation.
The outer layer of the skin is the protective layer that comes in contact with the outside world. It shields the skin from environmental factors such as bacteria and pollution, and it actually produces antigens close to the skin surface in order to boost immunity and balance bacteria growth. When the skin is out of PH balance, whether due to external factors or diet, then bacteria, allergens, and foreign bodies are able to find their way through the skin barrier, and once into the blood stream, create inflammation, allergies, and breakouts.
Everything that our skin comes into contact with directly impacts its pH. Our skin has natural mechanisms for retaining its balance, however it is OUR duty as consumers that we invest wisely in products that support that balance so that the skin can do its job! The same properties that allow soap to cut through oil also reduce the skin’s natural and protective acidity.
Applied as a toner or spritzer, our Tulsi hydrosol (both Krishna and Vana varieties) is lovely tool for restoring the skin’s natural acidity, bringing it back into balance so that it can breathe and glow!
