Bath soaps come in the traditional bar soap forms, and the liquid wash as well. While they both have the same purpose which is to clean the body and wash away dirt, most people tend to prefer using body wash. Body soaps are slightly stronger than body wash, and they do not always contain the moisturizing ingredients you would find in body wash. And since they tend to leave the skin dry after use, a body wash might be a better option.
Choosing the right body wash or soap for you all boils down to the type of skin you have. If you have normal skin or oily skin, you can use a bar soap, although it is advisable to go for a beauty bar soap over a regular bar soap because they contain more nutrients and moisturizing ingredients. For people with dry skin, a body wash will help to retain the natural body oils that might otherwise be stripped off when you use a regular body soap.
A few major tips when choosing a body wash are listed below:
Avoid lye. It is safest to choose soaps without lye because they might cause your skin to react or dry out.
Always use a moisturizer after your bath. They reduce the dryness the skin of the skin after it has been washed.
Avoid bathing with hot water all the time. Hot water is more likely to dry out your skin more than warm or cold water would.
Shower gels are also soaps in liquid form used for washing the skin, but where a bar soap or body wash might be too much for a sensitive skin, a shower gel could be the answer to your prayers. Shower gels are water based and have calming ingredients in them. They also do not contain a lot of the ingredients used in making actual soap which is why they can work perfectly for someone with extra sensitive.
