No matter what skin type you have, your skin NEEDS moisture. Our skin's barrier (aka acid mantle) should have a 5.5 pH balance to keep moisture in while defending it from toxins. The best way to tell if you skin is healthy is look and feel the texture (e.g. skincare products will absorb better and makeup will go on smoothly).
When your skin is not balance it will feel dry and will be prone to breakouts. So how do you correct acidic or alkaline skin?

Skin Lotion (toner) or Essence
Soak the tissue or cotton sheet in your solution. Then apply it on your face. Leave it for 3 minutes and remove it. You don't have to rinse. Then follow with your regular routine skincare routine.
When you do this before applying makeup your application will be smooth and flawless.
