Using bar soap on your face is one of the worst skin care mistakes that can lead
to premature skin aging. If you want your facial skin to stay fresh and young-looking
for a lifetime, avoid facial soaps at all costs and use a high quality facial cleanser
Everyday your face is exposed to harmful chemicals that are present in the air, such
as cigarette smoke and dust. With all of the pollutants, grease, grime and dirt collected
in the face, you might think that you need to cleanse very aggressively. Wrong.
Soap that is intended for the body should not be used on your face. Bar soap that
you use on your body is too drying for your facial skin. Because the skin on the
face is considerably more delicate than the skin on other parts of you body, it needs
to be treated with care.
Generally speaking, bar soaps usually contain harsh detergents and fragrance, which
are extremely irritating to the face. When you use bar soap to clean your face, you're
likely to notice a lot more breakouts.
Also, using bar soap on your face will cause wrinkles to form over time. Soap can
dry your skin out and remove sebum, an oily substance produced in sebaceous glands
that protects the outer layer of your skin. Hence, your face feels tight and uncomfortable
after washing with soap. Removing sebum completely will also result in an over production
of sebum, which will cause an oily complexion. In addition to that, soaps have very
high pH value (more alkaline) and will irritate the face. Don't forget that bar soaps
can still harbor airborne bacteria even if you rinsed it thoroughly before and after
use and keep it in an airtight container.
Facial cleansers are formulated and made for the skin on the face, especially cream
facial cleansers are far more superior than bar soaps sold in supermarkets. These
facial cleansers have a low pH level and will not strip the skin of its natural oils.
Facial cleansers are also tested for allergic reactions.
However, not all facial cleansers are equal. Some have alcohol and other harsh ingredients.
Like all other beauty/skincare products, always read and check the labels for natural
ingredients such as honey, plant extracts, keratin and coenzyme. Natural ingredients
are less likely to cause skin irritation. That being said, a good facial cleanser
should also contain moisturizing and hydrating ingredients. It should heal and nourish
the skin while cleansing. Look for facial cleansers that have antioxidants to counter
free radical damage.
With so many different brands available on the market today, choosing a good and
effective facial cleanser can be quite daunting. The best way to go about it is know
your skin type. With that in mind, shop for facial cleansers that are specifically
designed to suit your skin type.
People with normal to oily skin types should look for a water-soluble cleanser. Those
with dry skin, choose a creamy cleanser that's not overly drying and with less foaming
action (Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser). If you've sensitive skin, go for fragrance-free,
gentle cleansers that contain glycerin and/or hyaluronic acid (Purpose Gentle Cleansing
