Is face dryness the same as tightness?

Alot of times after a cleanser my face gets really stiff and tight. Is this the same as dry skin? I always figured dry skin was that slightly uncomfortable peeling and flaking of the skin.

No; it's not. I think it's probably a result of your cleanser stripping away layers of the skin and giving it a tight feeling.

I'd get that tight feeling using topicals even when my skin showed no other indications of dryness.

Hmm...that's weird, I would think it is. Tightness = mild dryness and flakiness = extreme dryness. That's what I've always had in mind anyway. :wacko:
