Do Soaps Enhance Beauty?


Skin Allergy & Soap

People prone to skin allergy should avoid soaps containing too many chemicals.  Now, how does one know the exact composition of a bar of soap?  It may be easier to reach the moon than try to get its composition from any manufacturer. 


People tend to think that their skin disease can be scrubbed away with medicated soap but it only aggravates the condition.


Therefore, if you are allergic to several skin creams and lotions, avoid using medicated soap. Besides, soaps should not be vigorously rubbed into the skin if there is even an doubtful sign of injury or rash.
