Most of us have grown up believing that skin should be ‘squeaky clean’ I.e. so clean that if you run a finger over it, it emits a ‘squeak’ just like a pristine counter top. In reality ‘squeaky’ is too clean.
If your skin feels tight, sensitive and dry after washing, it’s probably time to look at changing your routine.
Likely you are stripping the skin of its oily outer layer (sebum) which in addition to helping maintain skin pH and moisture, also provides the environment for that all important skin microbiome.
This is particularly relevant if you suffer from inflammatory conditions such as eczema and acne.
