However, depending on the skin type, the pH level can vary. For example, the skin of people with dry skin is often more alkaline, which can lead to skin infections. On the other hand, people with oily or combination skin often have a pH level that is too low, which can lead to an overproduction of sebum and cause blemishes and enlarged pores.
