The molecules of the soaps have two ends, where one end is called hydrophilic and that love water; the other end is called hydrophobic and that hate water. There are some basic rules you should follow when choose soaps based on your skin requirements. The person with sensitive skin would prefer mild and soft soap. Using soaps just because it is branded can end with some side effects. So reading the soap label is highly recommended before you buy body soap, because it should be choose according to your skin type. The pH level of the skin should be maintained well to have a good looking skin, so the soaps that maintain the proper pH level should be chosen. Perfumed soaps give good smell on usage, but it is not the perfume that matters but the quality of the soap. Some scents can trigger bad skin reaction, especially artificial fragrance oils which can last forever and fulfill your bathroom or wardrobe with overwhelming smell. The same I can say about natural essential oils, the main principle to keep in mind should be the less is better, especially if you think about soap for dry skin and sensitive skin.
Choosing the right ingredients is a very important to protect the skin from unwanted side effects.
Dry skin more often has small or invisible pores, rough complexion, red patches. It also has less elasticity that gives more visible lines or early wrinkles. Often this type of skin can be more affected by weather, hormones, medications, indoors heat, particular ingredients in soap or other cosmetic, even standard household cleaning products. Dry skin can be very itchy and easily irritated. Skin can look rough with fine flakes or dry patches. Such a skin may appear red, or gray and ashy. Dry skin has tendency to make not only fine lines and wrinkles, but also painful cracks.
Dry skin does not love regular industrial soap and it will not give a pleasant feeling after use. Dry skin needs to be moisturized immediately after shower or you should change your washing habits and change the soap you use. Dry skin more often can get fewer spot and blackhead issues than other skin types and some times can even look like dried soil in hot and dry summer days, thirsty for water which seems just run over and disappears too quickly to be absorbed socking in warm bath and use of mild creamy body soap would be a good start. Dry skin can become very uncomfortable, itchiness and tight feeling are its common problems, and such skin doesn’t produce enough sebum to soften it. This means it’s very important to choose appropriate products that won’t strip your skin’s oils even further.
Soap with large % of free oils or superfats would be product you should look for. Dry skin soap should contain rich skin nourishing oils and butters. You can choose products with very gentle essential oils and if you ever had experienced bad skin reaction after using soap start with unscented soap or choose scented soap with less essential oils as possible, avoid any fragrance oils and bright colored fancy looking soap bars, they could be full with compounds that has no benefit for skin and even soap maker does not know how these eye catching rainbow colors are made.

Dry skin does not love taking frequent, long and hot showers. But good news is that dry skin can be fixed easily and cheaply. After showering, use soft towel and pat it gentle without rubbing your towel over skin just press it gently to the skin and let it suck the water than apply some moisturizer all over the body, solid lotion could be your friend and can help skin restore pH balance naturally without clogging the pores.
