Why you should stop using soap on your face

Does your skin feel dry or irritated after using soap to wash your face? Can’t make up your mind if soap is enough to clear your skin deeply?

Even though we all had the habit of cleaning our faces with soap, we asked our dermatologists the same questions before knowing the facts and switching to facial cleansers.

Your facial skin is very sensitive and can easily be affected by external factors like soap.

Soap contains rough cleaners, perfume, and other elements designed to eliminate odors, unlike facial cleansers designed to clean deeply in the skin and protect its soft layer.

Soap also has high pH levels which can cause skin irritation. In contrast, facial cleansers resets you skin and give it its balance back, naturally.

Soap is not effective enough in removing dirt, oil and bacteria. Facial cleansers on the other hand, remove pollutants, and even makeup allowing your skin to breathe.

Finally, soap is the one and the same for all skin types regardless of their needs. Facial cleansers are especially made for each skin type, whether it’s oily, dry, or mixed. There are facial cleansers designed to minimize oil secretion thus preventing acne. There are cleansers designed to hydrate dry skin, or protect the more sensitive skin from irritability.

In brief, soap is good to clean the body, but there are much better options for the face.
