When your skin feels stiff and tight, it gives you a sign of dry skin condition. This often happens during or after you take a bath or when you swim. The common cause is the loss of skin moisture because of the soap/detergent or chemical ingredients reaction on your skin.
Some other things that cause your skin to dry and feel stiff and tight are
- Rubbing your skin too hard
- Experiencing extreme weather changes
- Taking hot shower or sauna
- Using the wrong skincare product
- Ageing or getting older
Your skin health can be worsened if you don’t treat your stiff and tight skin. When you lose your skin moisture, your regeneration cycle will be disturbed.
Therefore, you need to cleanse and moisturize your skin with the right product. Choose skincare with gentle and light formula, without excessive foam and added fragrance to help protecting your skin health.
Use the cleanser without excessive foam and added fragrance to keep your skin moisturized such as Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser which is suitable for dry, oily, acne-prone, combination or sensitive skin. Or use Cetaphil Oily Skin Cleanser as a cleanser for oily skin.
Moisturize your skin with the moisturizer for dry skin such as Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion or Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. Or you can use Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion as a moisturizer for dry, oily, acne-prone, combination or sensitive skin. Three of them have a light formula without added fragrance.
