18 Popular Skin-Care Products Dermatologists Want You to Stop Using

Bar Soap

“Generally, woman are better about not using bar soaps on the face, but my male patients are usually awful about it,” says Delray Beach, FL dermatologist Francesca Lewis, MD. “They use bar soap on their whole body and face, and it’s usually Dial or Irish Spring which are super drying on the skin,” she says.

If you are a bar-soap person, stick to an unscented one. Dr. Lewis likes the Vanicream ($14 for two) personally, as “it’s a sensitive-skin approved, hypoallergenic line, but for something more accessible, the Dove Unscented Sensitive Skin Bar ($1) is fine, too.”
