Dry And Flaking Facial Skin After Using Facial Cleanser?
This is why my facial skin is dry after using facial soap, after it’s peeling, it always happens periodically
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Dry and flaking facial skin after using certain soaps usually signifies disturbed skin moisture. The reason could be because:
The composition of the soap is incorrect or irritative
Allergy to the soap used
Habit of excessive rubbing or scratching of the skin
Exposure to sunlight, dry and cold air, or other excessive irritants, and so on
It could also be that your condition occurs due to an illness, such as atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, skin infections by fungi or other microorganisms, xerosis, and so on.
This condition, although generally not dangerous, should still be given directly to a doctor or dermatologist. Because, it is feared, if not handled properly, your condition can later expand, gain weight, causing pigmentation disorders, inflammation, or also secondary infections that are more difficult to handle.
At home, you can first do the following trick:
Choose facial soap that is hypoallergenic, non-irritating, mild, balanced, and suitable for your skin type
Avoid using facial soap that contains alcohol and other irritative ingredients
Avoid washing your face too often, just do 2 times a day
Avoid rubbing or scratching excessive facial skin
Don't forcibly exfoliate dry skin
Do not use the fan or air conditioner excessively, if necessary, use an air humidifier
Drink more, eat fruits and vegetables
Don't sleep too late at night
Hope this helps ...
