Is Your Face Too Clean?
So the added cost for these products are usually not worth it. If you have rosacea or acne that causes the skin to redden, then it's probably best to avoid soaps with built-in scrubbers, beads or exfoliators, as they can redden skin further. Another irritant is what you use to clean - fingertips can usually do the job without irritating skin, like a loofah or rough washcloth might. Take note of how your skin feels after you clean it. If it feels dry and tight, then you should consider a gentler cleaner. Using a moisturizer after cleaning your face is usually necessary, and it's a great idea to invest in one that contains SPF to protect skin from the sun. During this step, it's OK to look for a moisturizer that contains anti-aging or anti-acne ingredients, since this layer will stay on your face longer than a cleanser.
