Kenny Chesney was quoted as saying “I’m a bodywash guy. It freaks me out to use soap.” I’m dying to find out why soap freaks him out, but regardless of the reason, this grooming habit may very well be his secret to looking so young. 

Bar soap often contains sulfates and other detergents that create a lot of bubbles. In fact, that’s why it’s great at removing grime and leaving you squeaky clean. However, these detergents also tend to strip your skin of its natural oils, leaving it dry, tight, and irritated. Your arms, legs, and trunk have fewer oil glands than your face, so these are the areas that are most vulnerable to dry skin.

I’m honored and thrilled to be taking part in the Stand Up 2 Cancer TV broadcast, airing live tonight at 8 p.m. on all major TV networks! Watch for my hilarious skit with Ken Jeong (from The Hangover and Community), which demonstrates the importance of skin exams. I’ll be joining stars like George Clooney, Renee Zellweger, and Michael Douglas to help raise awareness and funds for cancer research. Since 2008, this organization has raised more than $100 million, which goes to more than 200 researchers that are developing applications for many forms of cancers — including skin cancer.
