General Effects of Inappropriate Cleansing

Inappropriate facial cleansing can lead to skin that is permanently prone to redness.

Repeated aggression leaves the skin looking chronically dull (stressed) and even more vulnerable to:

  • stress;
  • fatigue;
  • pollution;
  • air dryness (air conditioning, heating);
  • hard (alkaline) water;
  • irritation from medications.

One irritated, the skin will tend to get more easily irritated at any moment, and will be more likely to sting and feel tight.

Once this is the case, the only optimal solution is to opt for rosacea-specific, extra-gentle cleansers.
