Why does my skin dry out if I use bar soap but it doesn't if I use something like old spice or axe shower gel?

Why does my skin dry out if I use bar soap but it doesn't if I use something like old spice or axe shower gel?

High pH: Cleansers with a high ph (like many soaps) can strip skin of lipids and proteins, leading to dryness, irritation, redness, and, in some cases, even broken skin leading to infection.

Gels typically contain ingredients that lock in moisture. ...Read more

Unless you have broken skin on your face, having a "dirty" bar of soap that has been used to clean your face or body will not hurt you. Your best course would be to pay attention to your skin over the next few days and report any breakouts or rashes to your doctor. ...Read more
