Some soaps are simply too harsh for sensitive facial skin because they remove the naturally occurring protective oils and make the skin more vulnerable to bacterial growth, and may even cause cellular damage.
Also, the residue left by some soaps can plug hair follicles – leaving dry or flaky skin that is prone to infection and irritation. To maintain healthy looking skin, choose a mild cleanser that is specifically formulated for your skin type. An alternative to standard methods of face washing is the use of leathering cleansing cloths. These convenient sheets go beyond the basics of cleaning by including additional beneficial ingredients such as vitamins, exfoliants and moisturizing agents.
