Skin care is an important point in maintaining its health, beauty and youth. However, after washing, which seemingly should refresh and moisturize the skin, a person may experience a feeling of discomfort, tightness and excessive dryness. Why this happens, aif.ru told dermatologist, trichologist, cosmetologist Tatyana Egorova.
The feeling of dryness and tightness of the skin appears even if you just wash your face with water without special cleansers. This is due to the fact that water begins to evaporate from the surface of the skin and take with it the natural moisture of the skin. This evaporation must be stopped, for example, with a moisturizer.
If you wash your face with alkaline products, such as soda or soap, the acidity level of the skin will be disturbed, and the situation with the feeling of dryness and tightness of the skin will become even worse.
Most often, people with dry and irritated skin encounter this feeling after washing – it is already irritated and weakened. Those with oily skin will be less familiar with this situation and will experience less discomfort.
Sometimes you can recommend micellar water as a wash – these should be either pharmacy options or preparations from the professional series. It is enough to simply wipe the skin with water that does not need to be washed off so that the skin receives the substances necessary for moisturizing. And contact with water is always not good for the skin, so you must definitely use additional products.
