Skin is dry.

Recommended Posts

Ok. I'm on the regimen using the following:

-Basis Sensitive Soap

-NOTS

-Neutrogena Oil Free Moisturizer/Olay w/SPF.

I've noticed after I use the soap my face starts to get tight. Is that a sign I should switch my soap and get something more gentle? I don't know what the after effect should be. Should it be dry, or feel hydrated? It's crazy, because Basis is supposed to be for "sensitive" skin, but it's drying me out.

I plan on buying Cetaphil moisturizer tomorrow. Also, I'm using the recommended amount of BP. I have been on the regimen for a week and two days.

Thanks in advance.P

The dryness is most likely caused from the bp, even though you are noticing it more right after you wash. You could try switching to one of the liquid cleansers, if you want to, but probably adding some jojoba oil to your moisturizer would help.

Hope that helps.

Thanks, Brandy. When I woke up today I noticed the dryness subsided quite a bit. Maybe, I'm getting used to the BP. I think I might switch to a liquid cleaner. Which one do you prefer? I'm ordering Dan's products later on today, so I will be sure to add the jojoba oil.
