Why You Need Face Wash

If you’re reading this, you probably already care more than the Average Joe about how you look and smell. And for that, we congratulate you.

However, one thing we’ve noticed is there are still not enough guys using daily face wash. Sure, many of you are washing your faces every day with awesome products like the Fulton & Roark Bar Soap, but that’s just not cutting it. Odds are, you’re over-exfoliating and drying out your skin.

Don’t believe us on the power of face wash? Read the facts:

The Proper Face Wash Won’t Disturb Your Face’s pH Level

You probably enjoy washing your face with bar soap because it’s awesome at ridding your skin of all oils. However, bar soap is not formulated for everyday use on the delicate skin of your face. The soap strips your face of all its natural oils -- both the good and the bad -- eventually causing your skin to work overtime to renourish itself. This leaves you even greasier at the end of the day. Face wash breaks this endless cycle because it works to keep your skin at its happy pH level, controlling the oil in the process.


A Gentle Cleanser Will Not Damage Your Skin

While exfoliation is a necessary step in your grooming routine, it can easily be overdone. We know you love using the F&R Bar Soap as a face wash for the manly scrub feeling. However, if used daily (and aggressively), it can cause micro-scrapes on your skin. You wouldn’t want scrapes on your car, so why let them happen on your face? Tone back the facial exfoliate to one to three times per week and use a gentle face wash without an exfoliate to get a refreshing cleanse without the risk of damage.


A Good Face Wash is Packed Full of Benefits

Yes, there’s a lot of good stuff (for your body) in our bar soap, but we specifically developed a daily facial cleanser filled to the brim with skin-boosting ingredients. Tea Tree Oil fights razor burn and improves your complexion. Green Tea Extract and Lemon Verbena also improve your complexion while stimulating hair growth and fighting signs of aging. Eucalyptus is known its anti-inflammatory and antifungal benefits.


Now you see? Face wash is a must.

If you haven’t already added the Fulton & Roark Face Wash to your daily routine, we suggest testing the power of the proper face wash now.
