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. For this reason, i tend to avoid any cleansers with a high concentration of sodium bicarbonate (with a high ph), as well as most bar soaps. Gels typically contain ingredients that lock in moisture. ...Read more

My bar soap had gunk on it after i cleaned my sink. I cleaned it off but used it to clean my makeup brushes. I already used them. Should i be worried?

My bar soap had gunk on it after i cleaned my sink. I cleaned it off but used it to clean my makeup brushes. I already used them.  Should i be worried?

Soap Protects: Believe it or not, regular bar soap, even the ones that don't say "antibacterial" are quite effective antimicrobials. 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

Will my face breakout if i wash it with dove sensitive skin soap bar?

Acne: Dove soap will not make your face break out. If you have the tendency for acne washing with dove will not prevent your face from breaking out. Acne is not due to dirty skin.
