1. Using soap in the shower can be harmful
Okay, take few breaths and let that sink in.
Yes, as much as we love our bubbly suds, soap may not be as helpful as you think.
According to dermatologist Marnie Nussbau, some soaps can be very harmful to skin. It can strip the oil from your skin, leaving it tight and dry.
As an alternative, try using a soap-free, water-based cleanser/body wash.
“A body wash that is water-based instead of oil-based to maintain the slightly acidic pH of 5.5—so it’ll cleanse skin without drying it out”, says Nussbaum.
