Usually, we use soap in washing our face to feel refreshed. The alkaline component of the soap makes the skin even drier. The soap removes the natural oil and moisture content of the skin resulting in the destruction of acid-alkaline balance. It also promotes many problems of the skin. Hence, take simple precautions.

i) Perfumed soap may produce allergies to sensitive skin

ii) Premature aging may set in when soap is used on a dry skin for a continuous period.

iii) Red patches may develop on sensitive and dehydrated skin.

iv) In oily skin, the use of soap should be limited to two times a day. Wash your face with clean water properly. Excessive use of soap help increase the alkalinity of the skin, which may acquire an infection.
