# 1 Home Remedies For Dry Skin
One of the most important treatment for dry skin is to stop using SOAP! It doesn’t matter if you're normal, dry, or oily – nobody should ever use soap on their face. Your cleanser should be pH balanced. This means that your
facial cleanser cream
should have a pH that measures around 7 which is neutral.
The pH measures the how acidic or alkaline your cleanser is. Normal healthy dermis has a pH range 4.2 to 5.6.
At this level, the acid mantle (the upper dermis surface) is in good condition and is protected from dehydration and other damaging elements of the environment like wind, sun or bacteria. A pH below 7 is considered more acidic and above 7 is more alkaline.
