Can you wash your face with hand soap?
Yes, technically you can wash your face with hand soap, but we wouldn’t recommend it. Instead, pick a product that gives your face as much care as the rest of your body. Keep reading to find your perfect multi-purpose cleanser.
What do most men use to wash their face?
While there isn’t a ‘right’ way to wash your face, if you’re using soap, it’s important to pick a bar that’s formulated to care for every inch of skin on your body (including your face). This is because many soaps are made with harsh ingredients that wash away bacteria, but can also strip away your skin’s moisture in the process, leaving it feeling dry and looking less healthy.
So, can you use hand soap to wash your face?
Yes, but like we said – it’s better to find a multi-purpose product that cares for the skin on your face, too.
If you want to exfoliate your skin head-to-toe without stripping away moisture, go for Dove Men+Care Deep Clean 3-in-1 Hand + Body + Face Bar. Made with ¼ moisturizing cream and purifying grains, it gives you a deep, refreshing scrub while leaving skin feeling strong and healthy.
If you want something that can also be used as a shaving foam and shampoo, Dove Men+Care Plant Powered Relaxing Eucalyptus + Cedar Oil Cleansing Bar does it all. Made with natural essential oils, it cleanses hair, gives skin superior moisture, and leaves your face and body feeling softer and smoother.
Can you use body wash on your face, too?
Yes. And the same principles apply – find a multi-purpose product that gives your skin the care it deserves.
If dry skin is a concern, we highly recommend Dove Men+Care Advanced Care Dry Repair Face + Body Wash. Formulated with smooth shea butter and 25% hydration balm, it helps repair your skin’s barrier and is clinically proven to help restore extremely dry skin.
And if you just want a refreshing and hydrating cleanser for your everyday routine, you can’t go wrong with Dove Men+Care Clean Comfort Body + Face Wash. Our formula is made with MicroMoisture technology and leaves your skin feeling stronger, healthy and hydrated.
