We knew it was very wrong / These are the reasons why the body should not be

We are used to thinking that good skin care means having clean skin.

However, cleansing the body from head to toe with soap can do more harm than good to your health and appearance.

This is because the soap smells good but is not at all beneficial for your skin.

The 'Bright Side' decided to find out if just water is enough to rinse the dirt and what happens when you decide to stop using soap.

1. Your skin will feel healthier.

Washing only with water will balance the protective layer of your skin.

While soap effectively removes impurities from your body, it also cleanses the natural oils secreted by your skin.

Regular use of soap can also upset the skin’s pH balance, leaving it dry and irritated.

2. You will not have fragrance in the body

While showering with soap will make you smell fresh in the short term, it basically makes your skin more vulnerable to bacteria.

The harsh ingredients of soap disrupt the balance between skin oils and the bacteria that live on our skin, which causes the skin to produce even more oil and bacteria.

Antibacterial soaps are especially harmful as they destroy beneficial microbes along with bad ones.

3. It will keep your intimate parts healthy.

Washing with soap regularly can dry out the genital area which can lead to certain health conditions.

It is best to use warm water to wash your private parts, or hot water when you need to remove odors.

4. Your skin can stay wrinkle-free for longer.

While many of the ingredients found in soap are meant to leave your skin clean and fresh, they can actually do more harm than good.

In fact, they can damage the acidic mantle of your skin, which in turn can worsen many skin conditions, such as acne and dermatitis.

Washing with soap dries your skin, which can lead to wrinkles.

5. May reduce your chances of developing vitamin D deficiency.

In addition to contributing to premature skin aging, soaps can also interfere with the absorption of vitamin D.

Our skin turns the sun's energy into vitamin D, and some health care professionals recommend taking a shower less often, as it can upset the skin's balance and wash away some of vitamin D.

However, many in the medical community believe that vitamin D remains on the skin even after a shower.
