White Spots On The Face After Using Facial Cleanser?
I want to ask, every time I use facial cleanser, I often use it near my nose, under the mouth, chin and beside the lips, white spots appear like dirt or peeling skin, why is that? then what is the solution? Then how come the pimples on the forehead and sides of the eyes don’t disappear even though I use cleaning products for acne. I also sometimes use solid powder before using a moisturizer or BB cream, but I am not correct in the brand name?

White spots that occur after using facial soap that happen to you may be peeling skin. This peeling skin can also appear due to the face soap you use which causes your skin to become dry. Usually, facial soap that causes dry skin contains a lot of exfoliating ingredients, such as glycolic acid, salicylic acid, retinoids, etc. which are not balanced with sufficient moisturizing content resulting in post-use skin dryness. This can also be exacerbated if your skin type is dry skin.
In addition, apart from the dry skin type and facial soap content, facial dryness that you experience can also be caused or exacerbated by the following conditions:
Inflammation of the skin due to an allergy to materials in contact with the skin
Excessive sun exposure
Post drug use / facial peeling action (peeling)
Diseases that cause skin peeling (ichtiyosis)
For this reason, in this condition you should check with a dermatologist to determine your skin type and determine the right face wash and skin care for your skin type. The doctor will also track whether there are other factors, as mentioned above, that are causing your dry skin condition.
Things you can do at home to reduce your symptoms and prevent your condition from worsening are:
Drink lots of water, about 2 liters per day
Increase consumption of fruits and vegetables to meet the needs of vitamins and minerals, which are good for your skin
If there is peeling skin, avoid exfoliating manually as this can result in sores and lead to infection
Use a moisturizer on your skin, make sure it doesn't cause allergies to you by first trying it on the area behind the ear. Olive oil can be used as a moisturizer option because of its natural properties and tends to be safe.
Choose a face wash that suits your skin type, non-irritating, hypoallergenic, without coloring, and without fragrance
Use sunscreen every time you are exposed to the sun
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and is useful :)
