Here’s Why You Should Never Wash Your Face With Soap


Most of us wash our faces at least once a day and it can be tempting to just reach for the soap bar out of convenience. But did you know that washing your face with soap could be the reason you’ve got so many wrinkles?

None of us need any help getting more wrinkles, which is why we feel compelled to share the risks of this dangerous daily habit. Here are the top reasons your soap should never be used on your face!

It Strips    

anti aging skincare tips

There are thousands of different types of soap out there and many of them will claim they are safe for your face - but says who? Many of these soaps are unregulated and only tested on body skin - not facial skin. In fact, many of the ingredients in soap are proven to strip your skin of natural oils.

The natural oils on your face help regulate sebum, keep you hydrated, and make skin glow. When you wash with soap, it removes them leading to dull, lifeless skin - and excess wrinkles. Instead of using soap opt for an oil cleanser that will hydrate and brighten while it cleans. And thanks to natural ingredients like tea tree oil and lavender oil, you’ll be using something that is 100% safe for the skin and good for wrinkles!

It Leaves Residue 

skincare habits to avoid

Did you know that using soap leaves an invisible film behind on your skin? It might not be visible to the naked eye, but it’s hurting your skin in more ways than one. Water reacts with the ions in soap when they make contact and the film, often called soap scum, naturally occurs. It’s unavoidable when using soap which is why it's so important to switch your cleansing method ASAP!

Anti-aging ingredients in your routine cannot penetrate soap scum, so switching to an oil cleanser will help you get better results from your entire routine. It will go deep into pores and on the surface to clean skin without leaving any residue at all. You’ll be able to clean skin without having to worry about what’s still lurking on the surface, and make sure the rest of your routine is effective enough for visible results.

It's Unsafe 

toxic ingredients for skin

You’ve been using soap your whole life, but did you know that there are tons of chemicals and questionable ingredients inside of it? Soap, especially if it's artisan, usually doesn’t include a list of ingredients. Even something as simple as “fragrance” in your soap could be millions of different toxins disguised under the listing. In no way is putting mysterious chemicals on your skin ok.
