If you are using soap on your skin rather than a skin cleanser you will need to be very careful that you select one that is suitable for your skin type.
Opinions on the use of soap on face skin are divided with most beauticians recommending that a skin cleanser is more suitable for the face.
It is true that many types of soap can be too harsh for face skin and in particular for those people who have dry complexions.
Soap does have a tendency to dry the skin out and if it is used on someone who already has dry skin it will only intensify the condition.
For oily skin soap doesn’t present as much of a problem and it can be a suitable product to use as well as being very cost effective.
For people who are prone to acne and other skin blemishments, provided once again that this is not the result of very sensitive skin, an antibacterial soap can do wonders.
A more suitable product in most instances will be a skin cleanser.
Skin cleansers are available in various formulations and there should be one that will be suitable for almost any skin type.
They are milder than soap and more suitable for the face.
Other options that are well worth looking at are the complexion bars.
These bars look like a bar of soap but they are mild cleansers in the form of a soap bar making them both convenient and excellent for cleaning the skin.
As with liquid cleaners the complexion bars come in many different formulations targeting the various skin types.
Manufacturers all have there own slight variations so once again there will need to be a little bit of trial and sampling to find the one that is best for your skin.
