The Old Bar Soap is Not the Answer for Facial Cleansing

 While it might seem like a good idea to get your face “squeaky clean” by using a bar of soap for cleansing, it can actually wreak havoc on your skin.

    Bar soap is very drying and can remove your natural oils, proteins, fats and ceramides from the skin. A common misconception is that getting rid of all the oil is good, but in reality your skin has its own fine balance. Drying the skin too much sends a signal to the body to produce more oil which can produce more breakouts.

   Bar soap also will change the pH or acidic balance of your skin. This can cause the protective barrier of the skin to become weakened. This can cause your skin to become dry, red, and/or itchy. When skin becomes dehydrated, wrinkles and pore size also become more evident.

  Treat your face to any Skin Medica or SkinCeuticals Facial cleanser the month of July and get 25% off.
