If you’re like most people, finding the right soap for your skin can be hard especially if you are looking for a soap to do a specific job.
Most soap brands have a reputation for nurturing skin while others help promote dry and damaged skin.
There are a lot of soaps that have outstanding results when it comes to skin care, but some soaps are a better fit for certain skin conditions. Jami Miller, a MD assistant professor of medicine in the department of dermatology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, says, “Most soaps and body washes remove the oils that keep skin soft and naturally moisturized. Removing that oil makes your skin dryer. Many body washes leave a layer of moisturizer on the skin that helps to replenish the oils removed.”
For example, the beauty bars, Caress and Olay soap help promote soft and even toned skin for a smooth touch and these products don’t irritate the skin.
If you have sensitive skin try Dove Sensitive Skin, Aveeno Moisturizing Bar, or Dial Basics Hypoallergenic Soap because they use less heavier ingredients and more added nutrients that are just for sensitive skin.
If you suffer from dry skin or skin with acne, look for Shea Moisture African Black Soap, Jergens Mild Soap, or Neutrogena Facial Cleansing Bar for Acne-Prone Skin because they specifically target acne elimination while still giving the skin its proper oils.
Also Dove and Dial Soaps are the recommended soaps to use on tattoos because it moistures and repairs skin.
For other products for skin conditions, choose from natural soaps that contain aloe vera, cocoa butter, avocado or vegetable oils for dry and sensitive skin.
Also soaps that contain Vitamin E and jojoba oil are good for dry skin diseases like eczema.
For more skin therapy look for herbal soaps which contains lavender, peppermint, spearmint, and oatmeal that will also leave the skin feeling great.
