Just as each of us are as unique as a snowflake, so is our skin. One girl suffers from over inflammation. Another girl struggles from under eye wrinkles. Another suffers from dry skin. For each skin issue we seek out gels, creams, oils, exfoliants and products galore crossing our fingers one of them may work. What if I told you that the culprit of each these skin issues may not be all that unique? Most women don’t realize that their inflamed skin, dryness or wrinkles are actually caused by the same thing: an out of whack pH level.
While I’m no expert or dermatologist by any means, when I started using Tula a couple years ago I started skin care topics, including pH levels. pH stands for “potential hydrogen” which helps us measure our acid-alkaline ratio which can range from from 0 [the most acidic] to 14 [the most alkaline]. [source]
Skin’s health and pH levels can get thrown off by using certain skin care products or even by the food you consume! If you’re only eating acidic or alkaline foods or you use a bad skin care product, what’s the result? Your skin will lash out at you by displaying anything from wrinkles, inflammation, break outs or sensitivity. Life’s all about balance, right? The same goes for what we consume and put on your body’s largest organ – our skin!
Tula works with your specific skin to balance out your skin issues with probiotics – including restoring your skin to a healthy pH level. Below you can see the results if your pH levels are too acidic or too alkaline. Low pH levels result in acidic skin that’s prone to breakouts, redness and irritation. High scoring pH levels bring you to the alkaline or “basic” area where you’re more prone to wrinkles.
If you’ve followed along on Snapchat [id: m1nlyn] or read the blog frequently, you know that I’m passionate about Tula because the products are based off probiotic technology that work for all women and all skin types by balancing out our unique skin. This quote from Tula’s website really nails down the basis of their products and how probiotics are incorporated:
“Probiotics are good-for-you bacteria that work to improve your health, inside and out. These same bacteria that are best known to help calm your stomach are also clinically proven to help restore your skin’s natural balance, leaving your skin more hydrated, more radiant, and more resistant to damage in the future” [source].
HOW CAN WE ALTER OUR PH LEVELS?
So if you’re really struggling with a skin trouble areas, I would suggest taking the following two steps to balancing your skin:
1. FOOD INTAKE: Check this article and browse at the foods you’re intaking. If you’re constantly seeing red skin, maybe you are taking inn too many ‘acidic’ foods and should incorporate some alkaline ones into your meals.
2.PROBIOTIC SKIN CARE ROUTINE: I’ve been using Tula for two years now and can honestly say it’s the only skin care product that showed me results and FAST. Skin care products typically take at least six months of use before showing any results [if any]. Who has six months to TEST out a product? Not me, girl! That’s why I love Tula and am so passionate about spreading their message and products. They simply work and it doens’t take six months to see results.
2. OVERALL WELLNESS: Are you getting enough sleep each night? Are you taking steps towards reducing stress? Creating a healthy, balanced routine will allow your skin to rejuvenate and restore in combination with the two points above.
WHAT ARE MY RESULTS?
You can read more about my beginning Tula experience here and my recent night time routine here, but at a high level my main issue were dryness, painful dry patches around my eye lid, dark spots, dull skin and under eye creases [not sure if genetic or from indoor tanning for prom EW!].
The dry patches around my eyes went away within a week, but felt immediately moisturized after one night of applying the Hydrating Day & Night Cream. I have many freckles and while I think the ones of my nose are cute, I wanted to get rid of the freckles on my cheeks and other areas. I now can hardly see freckles anywhere, but speckles on my nose. The overall health of my skin has dramatically increased in radiance, even color, moisture and smoothness. And those under eye creases? Dramatically reduced! Actually seeing your results while using a product can be challenging since you see your self on a day to day basis of course. After finishing my first Revitalizing Eye Cream container, I really took the time to reflect and see how noticeably different these crease have become.. just in time for wedding celebrations too. WOO!
So as we chatted above, Tula’s probiotic formula balances your skin, no matter what your trouble areas are. Apply this in combo with their new pH Resurfacing Gel and your skin’s pH levels and trouble areas will subside leaving you smooth, radiant skin that you’re confident of! The pH Resurfacing gel works with probiotics, of course, and glycolic acid to balance the skin’s surface and restore its ideal pH, leaving skin smooth, hydrated and protected from damage.
Seriously, Tula brought me CONFIDENCE to walk out the door without a drop of foundation on.Since I’m a marketer, of course I value influencer’s experiences and opinions. What so I also love? Statistics from case studies. Te marketer in me jumps for joy when a company actually does testing and research. Here are some notable stats regarding the pH Resurfacing Gel:
94% agree their skin feels smoother after just 4 weeks
85% agree their skin tone looks more even after just 4 weeks
88% agree their fine lines & wrinkles appear softened after just 4 weeks
What products should you start with?
My recommendation would be do grab the Purifying Face Cleanser, pH Resurfacing Gel and the Hydrating Day & Night Cream. If you don’t want full size bottles, grab the Discovery Kit to test the cleanser and moisturizing cream out with a few other goodies too. I also have to note, if you’re using other product lines, ditch them for awhile and let Tula do it’s work.
