Many people like the bubbles of shower gel. The delicate foam is the standard for many people to measure the quality of shower gel. It is comfortable with a bath ball. There are also many fragrances. In addition to milk flavors, there are also various floral fragrances, which can make the whole body smooth and tender after washing, so many people prefer shower gels for bathing.
However, it should be pointed out that the smooth skin texture after showering with shower gel is due to the addition of chemical ingredients such as lubricants. After we bathe with shower gel, the lubricant will be attached to the surface of the skin. So it brings us smooth and tender skin.
It should also be pointed out that the cleansing function of shower gel is relatively weak compared to soap, so oily skin is more prone to clogged pores. Dry skin is more suitable to use shower gel.
