How To Wash Your Face If You Have A Stinging Face?

If your skin stings every time you wash your face- even if you only wash your face with water- you probably have rosacea.  (Or you have just started a retinoid and you are not used to it yet). Some people have rosacea and do not know it because they feel their face stinging, but they don’t have any facial redness. Rosacea prone skin can sting just from the friction of washing the face with water.  It is very common to feel stinging or to see redness on the face after using a face wash.

Here are some tips if your face burns after washing it:

  1. Take the skin type quiz to see if you have rosacea
  2. Consider using a cleansing water with selenium or other soothing ingredients
  3. Choose one of these soothing rosacea cleansers
  4. Consider not washing your face in the morning and only wash at night.

Soothing rosacea cleansers should be used with lukewarm water. Do not use a facecloth, a loofa, facials scrubs or a facial brush if you have rosacea or if your face burns.
