I am 25, and ever since I was like 12 years old I have dealt with what I think is dry skin (on my face). It isn't really severe or anything, I have just put Clean & Clear moisturizer on my face every morning after my showers for as long as I can remember.
Anyway, I'm not sure how to describe it, but after my face gets wet, the skin feels so weird. It feels really dry and tight. Does this mean my skin isn't getting enough moisture? The skin on the rest of my body feels fine! I've started using Neutrogena's Extra Gentle Cleanser, which is supposed to put moisture back into my skin, but it doesn't seem to be making a difference..of course, I've only used it two nights in a row so far. Is it possible the Clean & Clear moisturizer is taking the moisture out? It seems to really help my skin feel not so tight after my showers though.
If anyone has any tips for my skin, I'd really appreciate it!

Well the winter is much more harsh on our skin especially the face. The key is to moisturize a lot as soon as you get out of the shower or right after you wash your face while your skin is still damp. The moisturizer can get into the skin pores that way. I have always used regular Original Curel moisturizer & it works well. You should also use a makeup foundation with a moisturizer in it in the winter. I also recommend Dove bar soap. It doesn't dry out your skin but cleanses well.

I use this in the winter. My skin hasn't felt dry and tight since I started using it.
