We get it, skincare is the “in-thing.” Different trends, routines, and “hacks” are shared because it provides discussion among those who are interested in the process of skincare.

It’a given that you have a lot of options when choosing a product. If we talk about cleansers, it’s overwhelming to know that there are A LOT of them out there— from the traditional soap cleansers, facial wipes, cleansing balms, oils, to micellar waters.

It is noted that Asian countries such as Korea and Japan played a huge role in the popularity of skincare. Turns out, the use of seltzers, or carbonated water has been a trend in the mentioned countries for quite some time now.

Roberta Del Campo, Miami-based dermatologist explained the pH levels in products we use. Carbonated water has a pH of 5.5 which is the same pH of our skin while tap water has a pH of 7, which can reportedly disrupt the skin surface, which leads to dryness and irritation.

This isn’t just trendy, but is said to have benefits as well. Carbonated water acts as a vasolidator which basically means that it can improve blood supply for a healthier, brighter and blushed complexion.

Well, time to go to our nearest supermarkets! What do you think of this trend?
