Let’s be honest: Many beauty products are helpful but not necessarily vital. I’m always happy to stock my shelves with plenty of softening serums and purifying masks, but at the end of the day, I know that those products fall squarely into the category of “extras.” When I think about the core products I have that I actually genuinely need in order to wake up every morning and be a functioning human, one thing immediately comes to mind: bodywash.
No matter what, we all use bodywash (I hope, anyway). It may be tempting to just pick up the least expensive bodywash from the drugstore and call it a day, but bodywash can actually make a huge difference to your overall skin health. I talked to Snehal Amin, MD, co-founder and surgical director of MDCS Dermatology and Brendan Camp, MD, board-certified dermatologist at MDCS Dermatology for the lowdown on all things bodywash.
