You’ve got soap, body wash and face wash. Wouldn’t it be easier and cheaper to buy a bar of regular soap and to use it for everything? What is the difference between all of them? Usually, everyone thinks all three of these items are the same thing, but they are not.
When you're choosing a product to wash 90% of your body, it pays to make an informed decision about what you’re actually getting. Regular soaps are known to dry out skin, as many contain the chemical sodium hydroxide. Some soaps can remove essential lipids and proteins, and alter the skin’s pH level, which can cause skin irritation especially for men with sensitive skin. At the same time, it's best for everyone to avoid parabens and phthalates, as they are actually quite harmful to the body.
The factors that determine how good soap, face or body wash is, comes down to the ingredients contained in each. Reading labels will be your biggest help to determine which product will be the best for your skin. Hence, it might be best for your skin to adopt a rule to never use regular bar soaps on your face or body. Try to look for mild body and face washes with moisturizing properties since these won’t strip your skin of essential nutrients.
