Body wash is a product that cleanses the skin and is similar to liquid soap. It removes the germs and dirt from your skin. You can get some with a formula for dry skin, a formula for oily skin, and a formula for both types together. Make sure that your shower or bath water is warm, not to hot. Once you are wet, you can apply the chocolate body wash with your hands, or with a washcloth. By using a washcloth, or some other bath aide, you will be getting the dead skin off your body with a good lather and gentle scrubbing motions.
Chocolate body wash is better than soap because so the body washes have a lotion or moisturizer in their formula. Do not use it on your face. It can cause drying or clog the pores on the sensitive skin.
