Everyone has their preference as to what kind of soap they like to use when in the bath or shower: body wash/gel, bar soap or body scrub. What some do not realize, however, is that each type of soap has its advantages and disadvantages when it comes to skin type. Find out what type of soap will work in your skin’s best interest.
Before we get started, it should be pointed out that the type of soaps referred to in this article deal with the kind used on the body and not the face. There are plenty of articles out about what cleansers and other facial soaps work for different skin types, but hardly any when it comes to cleansing your body from head to toe.
Ah, good ole fashioned bar soap. In spite of the popularity of the various forms soap is available in USA, there are still plenty of people who prefer to stick to bar soap. Of course, we should all know by now that bar soap that is used for the body in the shower or bath should never be used on the face. When shopping for bar soaps, note the ingredients. Many have a lot of artificial ingredients that rely on smelly fragrances instead of providing hydration and nourishment to the skin.
Herbal soaps are available for sensitive skin types, as these use all natural ingredients. There are many bar soaps that have no fragrance at all so you can be assured that artificial fillers aren’t included. Those with normal skin won’t have much to worry about when it comes to bar soap, either. Be sure to choose one that leaves your skin squeaky clean but doesn’t dry it out or leave a greasy film afterwards.
