Is it worse to put something acidic or alkaline on your face?
I was wondering why just putting a niacinimide+water solution on a shaven area of your face makes it sting. I didn’t think Vitamin B3 would cause that sensation, so I assume its acidic in nature hence why it would sting. I also notice it stings when washing with soap, which is alkaline (not synthetic like Dove soap, which is fine). So that just got me thinking which would have worse effect on the skin in general.
