Ionized alkaline water is produced by a water ionizer machine. The machine uses a process called electrolysis, and produces alkaline and acidic waters ranging from a pH of 2.5pH-11.5. It is connected to your water faucet and when tap water goes through the machine it goes over the electrically charged plates. The water is separated into two steams. One of the streams is rich in hydrogen ions (H+) and is called acidic water, and the other is rich in hydroxyl ions (OH-) and is called alkaline water. People drink the alkaline or negatively charged water for its health benefits and use the acidic or positively charged water for their skin.
Acne is a skin condition that occurs when the oil-secreting glands in the skin are clogged and become inflamed or infected. Acne is caused by inflammation or infection of the oil glands in the skin and at the base of hairs. In the teenage years, hormones stimulate the growth of body hair, and the oil glands secrete more oil. The skin pores become clogged and bacteria grow in the clogged pores. When the body works to kill the bacteria, whiteheads and blackheads, form in these areas. Stress, birth control pills, dehydration, diet and too little rest can make acne worse.
Under normal circumstances, P. acnes lives happily in the pores of the skin, along with hair follicles and oil glands that produce sebum to keep the skin and hair from drying out. Acne erupts when the oil glands produce too much sebum, clogging the pore. Then bacteria build up, and the immune system decides to react against them, launching an attack that leads to inflammation and production of the pus-like substance that emerges as a pimple. The skins pH value is the major contributor of acne and other skin problems.
Human skins pH value is between 4.5 and 6.0. Newborns have a neutral pH (7.0) at birth but quickly change to acidic in order to kill bacteria. As we age our skin becomes more neutral (7.0pH). When the skins pH goes above 6.0pH we begin to have skin problems (acne) and disease, therefore it is better to use products closer to the skins normal pH (4.5- 6.0).
The acidic water referred to as “beauty water” produced by the water ionizer can be very effective in treating acne when applied topically. This mildly acidic water has a 4.5 to 5.5pH and perfect for skin because it is within the pH value of the skin. It is beneficial for the overall health and beauty of your skin. It tightens, softens, and provides an environment for healing and excellent for many common skin conditions. Can you say ANTIAGE?
Without water, your skin is not properly hydrated. Properly hydrated skin=healthy skin. Using beauty water to wash your face and spritz your skin throughout the day will keep your skin radiant and acne free. It is also recommended of course that you alkalize the body by drinking the alkaline water.
