Are you an Acidic bride to be?

Achieving that perfect bridal glow and perfect skin tone is crucial to look best for one’s wedding. As a make up artist for 10 years now. I often encounter brides who have this skin concern. They tell me that they have acidic skin.

but what really is an acidic skin?

Our skin is usually coated by an acid mantle that protects our skin from irritants such as bacteria, fungi and such. It’s normal pH ( power of hydrogen) is naturally between 4.5 and 6.2.

Many factors can affect our natural skin pH like age, oiliness, moisture, humidity that causes a decrease in the skin pH making it more acidic (<4.5)

This decrease in the pH causes the make up to oxidize. It triggers oil production as well as a darker change in the foundation color.

Any bride wouldn’t want a tanned orangy face on their wedding day right?

But don’t you fret any skilled make up artist would easily determine if you are acidic or not with their trained eyes.

Just like our recent bride Ms. Dianne ❤️

She has a very nice skin and lovely facial feature but she voiced out her concern that she is acidic and that she wants to look naturally fresh , radiant and glowing on her big day.

For Acidic brides we usually adjust the skin foundation 1-2 tones lighter than her natural skin tone.

so even though the skin oxidizes. We can still achieve that natural skin and glowing tone that we want. ❤️

Such a lovely and radiant bride. ❤️
