Are you lured by sweet scents and pretty packaging of soaps? Does the wide colourful range of soaps appeal you? Do you copy your friend’s choice of soap to get the skin of her quality? Wait! If you are practising all these moves, then, it means you are wrong somewhere. All such practices could be hazardous for your skin. Hence you should always select the soap which goes with your skin.
Here we discuss five tips to choose your skin depending on the fact that skin and soap are directly proportional:
Use the soap which suits your skin: If the soap you use goes with your skin, you will get a shining glowing skin. However if you are using soap which is unfit for your skin, you might end up getting rashes. For example, if your skin is dry and you are using dry soap, you can get an itchy skin full of rashes. Similar, an oily soap for oily skin can result in disaster. So know your skin well before using any soap.
Check if the perfumes used in soap are not artificial: The artificial perfumes used in soap can sometimes lead to itchy skin and dry patches. So make sure that the soap you are using doesn't have artificial perfumes. These synthetic fragrances come as mixtures of different chemicals which make them yield a desired scent. Although these smells can be the pride of manufacturer, but it can bring loads of troubles for you in form of dizziness, skin irritation, rashes etc. So try using natural soaps which don't have artificial fragrances.
If allergic, don't use any stuff which can trigger your allergy: If your skin is allergic to something, try using soaps with limited ingredients. If you choose any soap with ingredient list, it means that your skin is non-allergic kinds and you wont be getting affected by it. Hence, it’s a must to know about the sensitivity of the skin before deciding on soap quality. For example, you might be allergic to gluten, which is a protein found in wheat, barley etc. Often this protein is used in shampoos and soaps as thickener. And if you use soap with this protein, you may get an itched skin during or after the shower. So be careful of the allergens in soap you are using and remember the sensitivity of your skin too!
If possible go natural with soap: Generally natural soaps come out best for the skin. As they are processed from sustainable resources, made from plant-based ingredients and naturally occurring fragrances, they basically do not harm skins. So try using them to get that natural feel of aromas and fragrances.
Go for Sustainable resources : Try using soaps made of sustainable resources. This is because these soaps are green option. Selecting this option, you will ensure that you are not adding extra chemicals and pollution to the water cycle. And eventually the aquatic life too is not damaged with these soaps.
Now, when you are aware of these tips, we are sure that you might not get lured by sweet scents and colourful soaps. On the other side, you need to remain more alert on what your are choosing. A wrong choice of soaps would give a dull looking skin, however, a smart selection would definitely give a youthful, radiant, soft and clear skin.
