Find out if you are using the wrong face wash

You may think that cleansing your face with a face wash will help you do away with the dirt and grime of the day. However, you are not doing your skin any good if you are using the wrong formula. According to dermatologist Dr Sejal Shah, you need to change your face wash if you notice the following signs.

Excessive breakouts: Apart from the hormonal changes, if you are waking up with a new zit every day, it could be a sign that you are using the wrong cleanser. Pick a face wash which contains benzoyl peroxide.

Dry skin: Does your face feel too tight after you cleanse? It could be a sign that your face wash is too drying for your skin. If your skin is dry, look for a formula which contains hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid can help lock in moisture into the skin and prevent dry skin. Also, make sure that you apply a moisturiser within seconds of patting your skin dry. Here are 6 things you did not know about facial cleanser. 

Redness of skin: If your skin appears red after the cleanse it is a sign that you are using the wrong formula. Ditch the formula if you notice redness across your nose and cheeks. To avoid any irritation, look for fragrance-free formulas with ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid.

Irritation: Using a harsh cleanser can irritate your face every time you expose yourself to all kinds of pollutants from the car and environment. The cumulative effect of the face wash and pollutants can make your skin extra sensitive and cause burning and itching. Make sure that you use a gentle face wash that is sulphate-free. Look for more soothing and natural ingredients on your face wash.

Shiny skin: If your skin is oily and you feel the need to blot even after cleansing you are probably using the wrong formula that is not suiting your oily skin type. Look for oil absorbing formulas containing salicylic acid and clay. These ingredients will help your skin appear matte for longer. Here are the top 5 face wash brands for oily skin.
