what soap does to your skin

Soap removes oil and dirt that can cause skin problems and even infections. However, some types of soap also remove natural skin oil, which protects and lubricates the skin.

When you’re not sweaty or dirty, apply a mild cleanser to the armpits, genitals, hands, and feet only. Avoid using abrasive, drying or irritating soaps, since they might lead to breakouts or dry, flaky skin. Try using a gentle, moisturizing beauty bar or body wash to help keep skin healthy
