What do you use in the shower? Soap? Shower gel? Au naturel? Body washes are probably the best thing to cleanse with in the shower, according to recent research.
The number one benefit of using body wash, according to Spiritual Scents, over shower gels is neatness and ease of use. Soap can be slippery, can fall apart on you, and often leaves a lot of difficult to remove residue in your soap dish. It can also be difficult to lather soap to the point that you feel really clean. Body wash, on the other hand, comes packaged in a bottle, so it is easy to use exactly the amount you want without leaving any mess. The best way to apply a body wash is to use a body sponge or pouf, which you can purchase for a dollar or two at any drug store. Just pour a little bit of body wash on to the pouf to create a rich lather which you can use to wash yourself all over. This method has the added benefit of being extremely exfoliating!
Another benefit of using body wash is its versatility. If you are using a natural body wash that foams well, you can even use it to wash your hair! This is not recommended for every day use, but can come in handy on a vacation when you don’t want to have to bring a bunch of separate bottles in order to have a nice shower! Some body washes actually seem to work better as shampoos than certain products labeled as shampoos. However, only do this with natural body washes that do not contain loads of synthetic chemicals, or you may dry your hair our.
The versatility of body wash does not end there. Many natural body washes can be used as a lovely foaming bubble bath. You can even use body wash as a beautifully scented hand soap, although it will probably be a bit expensive.
Body wash can even be used to make a luxurious sugar scrub! Sugar scrubs are moisturizing and exfoliating and cleanse away dry, dead skin, especially in wintertime. Many shops charge incredible amounts of money for sugar scrubs. Instead of spending all that money, try using the following recipe: Take about 3 cups of turbandino or regular table sugar, 1/4 cups of sweet almond or other lightly scented carrier oil, 1/4 cup of jojoba oil (or more, if the sugar is not saturated with oil), and two or three teaspoons of your favorite shower gel. Blend everything together and you will have an amazing, moisturizing sugar scrub at a very low price!
