If you have been using the same facial wash for a long time and now you are looking for something new, you may want to know what causes that tight feeling on your face after washing it.
Here are some of the reasons why your skin feels tight after washing your face:
You have been using the wrong facial cleanser. If you are using a harsh or drying facial cleanser, your skin will feel tight after washing it. This is because harsh cleansers strip off all the natural oils from your face leaving it dry and dull.
You haven’t moisturized your skin properly after cleansing. When you use an alcohol-based or drying cleanser, it can dehydrate your skin making it feel tight. To avoid this problem, apply a good moisturizing lotion or cream immediately after washing your face with a gentle cleanser.
You have used too much water while cleaning your face or have scrubbed too hard on your face which has made it feel tight. Don’t scrub hard on your face while using any kind of facial cleanser; instead gently massage it over your face in circular motions until all dirt and makeup are gone.
