Hey, haven't been on here in a while. Just a little background: I was here a while back, but acne cleared up for the most part and there are some minor spots. I thought they would eventually go away, but they persisted so I am back on prescriptions.

Anyhow, I was just wondering if washing with a bar of soap in the shower has a positive or negative effect on my skin and acne. I've heard mixed opinions on it, so I came to the experts to ask!

Thanks!

If you mean standard bar soap then that's not good. A lot of them can have pore clogging ingredients but not just that, the PH isn't right on bar soaps.

Really though, it depends what type of bar soap your using. I've heard good things about aveeno's oatmeal bar.

Yeah, haha, just the normal bar soap. Glad I got some feedback on it! I thought I was seeing a correlation between using the soap and receiving new acne bumps, but wasn't 100% that it was from this!

Thanks a lot, though :) I'll stop using it!
