If a cleanser leaves your skin feeling excessively dry or tight it might be too harsh for your skin type
A cleanser is a cosmetic product that is specifically designed to remove dirt, impurities, oil, and makeup from the skin. It helps to clean the pores and leaves the skin feeling refreshed. A face cleanser can be unfit for you if it doesn't suit your skin type or if you have a specific skin concern that the cleanser is not designed to address.
Some signs that indicate you shouldn't use a cleanser include:
- If you experience redness, itching, burning, or any other form of irritation after using a cleanser, it may not be suitable for your skin.
- If a cleanser leaves your skin feeling excessively dry, tight, or flaky, it might be too harsh for your skin type.
- If your skin becomes oilier or experiences frequent breakouts after using a cleanser, it might be too stripping or incompatible with your skin.
- If you develop an allergic reaction such as hives, rash, or swelling after using a cleanser, it's important to discontinue use and consult a healthcare professional.
