Skin is shiny but dry

Recommended Posts

I made a thread before about my shiny skin before but I don't think that this is is oil anymore. I will wash my face with water and be shiny immediately. My skin seems really flat and tight, almost like someone put saran wrap on my face.

Has anyone had something like this happen to them? or know of any solutions. I've been off accutane for about 6 days now. Is this possibly something I have to ride out?

That's 'just' dry skin. Continue to moisturize and treat your skin gently (warm, not hot water, a gentle cleanser, etc) and it should get better.

My skin does that taut, shiny thing immediately after a peel when it's dry and annoyed with me. Of course once I put on the petroleum jelly, the taut shininess is gone. My skin will also get taut and shiny if I use Purpose bar or any other cleanser besides Cetaphil.
