Typically, body washes and body cleansers are quite similar, they both aim to wash away impurities like dirt, sweat and unwanted chemicals on the skin. However, the difference between the two is that typically, body wash tend to have a creamier texture with additional hydrating properties, while body cleansers has a gel-like texture.
It is always best to use a suitable facial cleanser for your skin type. Using a body wash on the face might be too harsh on face skin. Your face is generally more sensitive, prone to breakouts, clogged pores and signs of ageing than the body. Using a specialised face cleanser can cater towards your specific skin concerns and help improve your skin’s overall vibrancy.
There are body washes, cleansers and shower gels that can cater to your specific skin concerns. If you have a naturally oily skin type, a shower gel might be a good option as it tends to have a stronger, water-based formula. Those with normal skin types who want to give their skin a thorough cleanse without over-stripping the skin should opt for a body cleanser, while sensitive or dry skin types might work best with a body wash. Observe how your body reacts and adjust formulas if necessary.
