5 Signs That Your Face Wash Is Making Your Skin Worse

Dr Geeta Grewal, cosmetic surgeon reveals how to choose the perfect face cleanser for your beauty woes.

A cleanser should make your skin feel soft and clean. If your skin feels tight after washing, it’s a sign that it is not right for your skin.

Noticing redness or sensitivity post-cleansing? Then your cleanser is damaging your skin barrier which can further lead to other skin issues such as acne and pigmentation.

The wrong cleanser will make your skin oilier because it is very drying. Your skin will produce excess oil to compensate for the loss of moisture.

Continuous use of a harsh face wash can damage your skin barrier leaving it more prone to environmental damage from free radicals. This causes wrinkles and fine lines to appear faster.
