Soap or Bodywash Which is Best?Posted on June 5, 2017
Deciding which cleanser to use for body is no longer an easy decision. There are a multitude of soaps and body washes available. But, which one is best? According to a recent online magazine the key is to choose the products that are best for your skin. Jami Miller, MD, assistant professor of medicine in the department of dermatology at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee cautions against using advertising statements as a justification for purchasing certain body washes, bar soaps, or shower gels. Dr. Miller says that most of the ads have misleading messages and that instead you should consider whether your skin is sensitive and dry, or whether it is oily. Your bathing habits are also very important when it comes to considering which products work best. It is best to use warm water instead of hot water when taking a bath and moisturizer should be applied immediately after drying off. Regardless of which product you choose the goal is to remove dirt, bacteria, and quite frankly all of your natural body oils. Dr. Miller says look for products that leave a layer moisturizer on the skin which will help to replenish the oils had been removed Bar soap can tend to be drawing so the best rule of thumb is to be sure that it is not contained lye or other agents that will strip the skin of moisturizer. A beautifully toned body is as important as soft and supple skin. Dr. Kim consults with patients who are concerned about body contouring and will typically recommend liposuction as an excellent solution. Dr. Kim is both an artist and a skilled plastic surgeon so he is able to achieve results better than diet and exercise.
