Using Ionized Water: Beauty Tips

Your Inner-Most Cells and Organs are Alkaline-Loving

Beauty Starts on the Inside

At 8.5 pH to 9.5 or 10 pH alkaline ionized water is the perfect drinking water. It will help to neutralize the acidity of the body and slightly alkalize the body. Alkalizing the body will help to ward off infections, cancer and other invaders to the naturally healthy and beautiful state of the body. Alkaline ionized water also assists in the safe removal of toxins from the body. In addition to the health-benefits of alkalizing your body, the negative ORP [oxidation reduction potential] of alkaline ionized water will provide the body with lots of easily absorbable antioxidants. Anti-oxidants are important in order to prevent free-radical damage that would otherwise be caused by oxidation within the body. 

Your Outer-Most Cells and Organs are Acid-Loving

Your Skin, Nails and Hair do not like Alkaline-Mineral Deposits

Your exterior cells and organs are much different in their pH requirements than the innermost cells and organs of your body. Most people don't realize that the skin is the largest organ of your body, and it is actually one of your organs of elimination. We don't usually think of skin this way, but sweating is one of the ways our bodies get rid of toxins. As an organ of elimination, the skin is adapted to loving an acidic pH. The hair and nails are related to the skin, and have the same pH needs as the skin does -- which is acididity at the level of about 5.5 pH.


High alkaline opens pores and acidity closes them. Normal, healthy pores want to be closed tightly. This protects you against invaders [such as poisons, bacteria, viruses, and funguses]. There are occasional reasons to want to use alkaline solutions on the skin and hair. Washing, for instance, to get rid of excess oils and dirt. Read more about that, below. Also, if you have clogged pores [such as pimples or boils] you will want to temporarily open those pores to let the puss out. Whenever you do open your pores, you will want to close them again by using the lowest pH your skin can easily tollerate [which is about a 3.5 - 4 pH].

Soaps are usually alkaline in nature, because alkalinity helps to cut through grease [which is one of the things you're trying to clean with soaps and shampoos].  3 - 4 pH-level is perfect for neutralizing the skin and hair [which should be about 5.5 pH, but because of alkaline soaps and shampoos you use, the skin and hair are usually found to be way off-balanced]. Acid water is used as a...

  • Skin Toner and Conditioner: Your acid mantle [outermost layer] of your skin is your body's first line of defense against bacterial, fungal or viral infections. It is important to maintain this acid mantle at about a 5.5 pH. However, because of the nature of soaps [soaps are typically a high alkaline pH in order to emulsify and flush away oils] the acid mantle is often left at too high of a pH after bathing or showering. The consequences of this is a breakdown of the acid mantle, drying out of the skin, and roughness caused by a build-up of alkaline minerals left on the skin. Rinsing with acid water helps to remove the residual alkaline minerals and restore your skin to its perfect 5.5 ph-level.
  • Hair Rinse: Shampoo is most often found at a high alkaline pH. A high pH solution applied to your hair will open up the hair cuticles [the cuticle is the outermost hair-layer surrounding each hair shaft], and expose it to becoming dry and damaged.  It is most beneficial to the health and beauty of your hair to close the hair cuticle . The cuticle opens with a high pH and closes with a low pH. When you rinse with water at a pH of about 3.0 to 4.0, this low pH water combines with the high pH of your newly washed hair and restores it to its ideal pH of about 5.5.
  • Pre-Pooing: Acid water can also be used to pre-poo [pre-shampoo] your hair [pre-poo by pouring acid water, about 3-4 pH, over the hair and let it sit for a couple of minutes before shampooing. The acidity closes up the hair cuticles, thus preventing the hair shaft from being exposed to and being dried out by the shampoo.] Then after you shampoo [and condition if applicable] give a final rinse to your hair with about a 3-4 pH acid water. This will again close up the hair cuticles and protect your hair from drying out or otherwise becoming damaged later on. Beauty Secret: Hair that has tightly closed cuticles has a smoothe, shiny, silky look to it and doesn't split at the ends.
  • Natural, Healthy Coolant: Acidic water can be placed in a spray bottle and brought with you to sports or other outdoor events in hot weather. When you set your bottle to mist, this has an air-conditioning effect of cooling off your body. It's healthier for you to use acid water at about a 5.5 pH in your mister, rather than regular tap water, because the goal of misting is to cool yourself, not change the pH of your skin. The proper pH of skin is about 5.5 pH.
  • Natural Laundry Softener: Add  acid water to your final rinse cycle of any load of laundry. This removes residual alkaline minerals from the clothing, brightens up the colors, and softens the laundry naturally, without the use of chemicals. 
  • Plants: Acid water at the pH levels of 5 - 7 pH is great for watering plants. Plants love the purified micro clustered water, and they also love the water to be slightly acidic. Flowering plants tend to like lower acidity than green shade-plants.
  • Germicidal Water: To kill germs it is best to use acid water at the pH level of 2.5 - 4. The lower the pH the faster the germs are killed, but even at a 4 pH, if you soak something for about a minute it will kill the germs on it. Laboratory testing has proven that exposure to acidic water at a 2.5 pH and lower kills germs on contact.
