help,,even with gentle cleanser my face is tight

Recommended Posts

i dont know why..its been like this for years

i cant seem to have water on my face, it feels tight ,,no hydration...

i tried a babywhipe to take off the little makeup i use, and my skin felt better

not tight...

so im thinking its that i use water and cleansers that r to harsh..but even moisturizing ones dont help

my friend that always has clear skin, says she doesnt use a thing on her face...and it keeps herclear

if she wears makeup , she uses a whipe cuz shebreaks out when using cleansers or creams

i use makeup remover and then..im using the neautrogena illumintating foam cream cleanser and i like it...but im still tight after i wash.. it sucks cuz im dry after i wash but then T zone oily in the day

i dont want to use so much on my skin..should i just use a none water whipe as a cleanser??

can anyone suggest a good kind for dry/combination sensitve skin???

thanks so much

are you using moisturizer? using an oil free moisturizer after any cleanser is key. maybe that's why your skin is so tight?

yes i do, i use a oil free moisturizer

but its just even i water hits my face, its tight...

but if i just use wipes , i feel like its not a bad feel..

i didnt think it was normal for your skin to always feel tight and dry after its washed,

but yet in the day its oily in the t zone

Maybe try it and see? It can't hurt too badly temporarily. I'm greasy no matter what, so I don't really have any insight into this.

Not all oils are bad for your skin. Some are beneficial.

Try using a different moisture. I suggest finding some jojoba oil if you can. Add that to your moisturizer and tada.

Hey have you tried purpose gentle skin cleanser? Its as gentle as water, such a good face wash. Or cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, you look like a candidate for the waterless cetaphil washing method. just rub it on your dry face, lather, then take off with a dry or moist towel.
