There are several controversial opinions about using soap for skin cleaning. One of them states, that soap dries skin out, and the best decision is to avoid using it at all. This statement has the right to exist, because the best way to clean off dirt and fat is to use the substance with the alkaline nature like soap, which can effectively interact with them. As far as skin has a slightly acidic pH-balance, soap makes it pH-neutral, dry and harsh.
You can avoid your skin drying by using the proper sort of liquid soap, which is comfortable for your type of skin.
How to choose a soap for every skin type
- Soap for oily skin
It should be considered, that this type of skin has excess sebum ang acne developing and tends to pore clogging. Soap for oily skin should remove excess sebum and prevent drying, sloughing off dead sells and reduce the severity of acne.
- Soap for dry or sensitive skin
In contrast to oily skin, dry skin lacks oil and liquid so the soap for dry skin should have moisturizers among its ingredients like glycerin, jojoba, Aloe Vera or abogado oil, cocoa butter etc.
- Soap for normal skin
Although this type of skin is less problematic then the other ones, choosing soap for normal skin should be careful as well. For normal skin we recommend soaps based on the medical plant extracts like lavender, chamomile, marigold, wintergreen etc.
What soap is good for sensitive skin
Sensitive skin needs special type of treatment that can be effectively provided by special cream-based sorts of soap, which have natural components, proper pH-level and good cleansing and moisturizing.
