Does dove bar soap cause acne? does it clean better then irish spring?

Report as

Well I'm a girl and I use dove bar soap and I think it works amazing, I haven't seen any acne yet. Now, if you want to help clear up your acne, try using regular Dial bar soap, it should be in the blue or yellow package when you buy it. I use it on my face and in the shower most days and my skin is so clear now. But you have to moisturize afterwards because the soap takes the oil out of your skin, that's why your acne goes away because it dries up. Other than that, use a good facial and body lotion and you should be good :)

You might have had a reaction to the Dove is why you had acne afterwards, that's a good explanation for breakouts. Also, acne on the body is very normal for teenagers, and actually people of all ages. If you visit a dermatologist, they will tell you that acne is the buildup of dirt and bacteria in the pore that eventually has to come to the surface and become irritated, which is why some pimples are red in color or are white or black heads. Also, you can thank genetics as well. Honestly, I don't get that part myself, but my mom told me that bad facial breakouts was "in my genes" because both my parents and their parents had bad acne as teens as well. But I find that a healthy diet and a good exfoliating facial cleanser makes a heck of a difference. Drink lots of water and take vitamin E (which is also a bonus because it is good for nails, hair, and your heart!), limit fatty foods and sodas. And wash your face twice daily. Once while you wake up and before bed (or in the shower). Also use a moisturizer as well to help keep flaky patches from dryness away. :) Good luck!

Cause acne, no. And as for cleaning better, they are both the same, Dove is just gentler than Irish spring because they usually add some moisturizer to it.

That's all my family uses and I always use it on my face.... The kind for sensitive skin.... And I think it's great. Irish Spring seems harsh and has perfumes.

You can use any soap. Later apply Ultra Clearasil to treat acne... it works well

I had to stop using it on my face because I started breaking out. But I don't know if it's just my body chemistry or the soap.

I think Dove is better because it has moisturizer in it. Irish Spring can dry out your skin.
