Can a skin ever be too acidic? I've been using irish spring soap for all my life on my face. My face had never had any bad breakouts, if I did it would just be one pimple everytime my hormones goes out of wack. Anyway my skin was perfect. Then a friend pointed out to me that using bar soap on face may be good and dandy right now but in the long run once I turn 30 or 40, it will ruin my face. So I decided to use a low ph cleanser, but my face broke out after using a cleanser so I was wondering if my face likes the alkalinity or my face is just way to acidic and i needed normal soap for my face to be happy. I dont understand.
