Re: --Skin--Acid or Alkaline--

>>>>>>>>"the body is supposed to have an Alkaline skin mantle in order for you to become and stay Healthy!"<<<<<<<<<

Where do you get this info? Or what is your logic behind it?

The body produces fumaric acid when exposed to sun. Acids kill certain bacteria and fungii.

these are rather scientific quotes:

*An increase in skin surface pH encourages bacterial growth. Patients with diabetes have an increase in skin surface pH in intertriginous areas, and it’s known that patients with diabetes are more prone to Candidal infections, especially in intertriginous areas. Studies have shown that Candidal skin lesions are more pronounced on skin with higher pH values

*some resident microflora help lower the ph of skin.

*However, in individuals prone to acne, the number of P. acnes is greatly increased. It has been found that the growth of this bacteria is very much dependent on the pH value of the skin and its growth is at its minimum at the normal skin pH of 5.5. A slight shift towards the alkaline pH would provide a better environment in which it can thrive.

*alkalines dry out the skin. Acids attract moisture and keep the skin hydrated.
