Standing in the middle of a cosmetic supermarket but don’t know which body wash to buy? No, you cannot just pick up anything without bearing in mind your skin type. Every one of us have different skin types and the unguents we use must be permitted by our skin otherwise it can have adverse effects on the skin. Using a body wash for bathing is a great way to sooth and smoothen the skin and it can also have other benefits. Let us find out.

Body washes also have different formula to suit a skin type- shower gels, moisturizing body wash and exfoliating body wash. Shower gels are clear and brightly colored body washes and look similar to shampoos. They mostly contain water and a low proportion of detergent for gently cleansing the skin. These body washes have a high content of fragranced ingredients hence giving the user a wide variety of fragrances to choose from; they are best for post-workout wash. They are designed only to clean the skin and contain little conditioning to keep your skin hydrated for long. People having normal to oily skin types can use this kind of body wash without feeling skin sensitivity.

As the name suggests, a moisturizing body wash is designed to moisturize the skin with its high content of soyabean, sunflower, petroleum jelly, olive oil, Shea butter, etc. They look like body lotion but act like mild cleansers. They stick well to the skin even hours after the body wash is washed away, so you feel moisturized for long. These body washes are less drying than the gel formula but tend to be a little more expensive. You can even skip applying a body lotion if you bathe with a creamy, moisturizing body wash. They are great for normal to dry skin types and people looking for milder formulas.

The exfoliating body wash uses beads, sugar, salt, etc. to gently scrub the skin to get rid of dead cells and give you smooth skin. The best part about body wash is that they don’t deposit on your bathroom floor and give you are luxurious, creamy bath, unlike soap. Wake up to that beauty-holic in you and choose the best-suited body wash to adorn your bathroom and your skin. There is a body wash for every ‘body’ walking on this earth; one just has to have a skin and sensation for it.
