Your skin needs constant care for a natural, healthy glow. Your face, in particular, is a lot more delicate than the skin on the rest of your body. This is because the thickness of your skin varies. Since the skin on your face is much thinner, it needs gentle care. Therefore, it is essential to use the right skincare products for your face.

When it comes to washing your face, generally you have two options – a soap or a face wash. Both will clean your face but there are differences in the way they do it. Soap is generally harsher whereas a face wash could possibly be gentler on your face skin. But there are some soaps that are made without the harsh chemicals, such as Capulet soaps’ bars!

When you Shouldn’t use your Body Wash as Face Wash


Is soap good for the face? As dermatologists suggest, a soap bar is not suitable for use on the face.

Most Soap is alkaline-based, but your skin is acidic
In contrast to alkaline-based soaps, your skin is naturally acidic and should have a pH level between 4 and 6.5, even if your skin type is oily. The alkaline nature of the soap bar can cause your face to become dry and strip away the natural moisture. If you apply soap regularly on the face, it may turn flaky and itchy, or become prone to breakouts.

No You Shouldn’t, Why?

Put simply because it can severely damage your facial skin. The natural oils secreted by the face act as a protective layer against environmental factors, like dust, pollution and harmful UV rays. Washing your face with soap can leave it looking wrinkly, haggard, and dull. The harsh chemicals present in it may be useful in cleansing your body but certainly not the face. Your face has multiple pores and if you do not take proper care of them, it may be prone to blemishes, acne and pimples.
