Predominantly, we have been bathing with soap and water. It is only recently that body washes have been introduced in India. There are some amazing body washes out there but when it comes to ease of use and convenience, nothing beats the soap. Some of them tend to be drying because in a bid to clean the skin, they also strip the skin of many of its oils. But there are also many moisturizing soaps that leave your skin baby soft.

We give you our picks of the top 10 best soaps in India that will give you a refreshing bath and great skin!
