Low production of oil and lack of hydration can make the skin feel very tight, irritated and look scally. Dehydrated skin can often over compensate by overproducing oil. As a result, it can feel tight and rough to the touch. Don't forget to gently exfoliate for maximum penetration of your nourishment and to avoid clogs such as whiteheads and blackheads. Treat your skin with lots of nourishment and love!
