But here is what’s confusing: Many proven skin care ingredients, like acids and retinoids, might in fact sting, and in that particular case, they're supposed to. For products like those, tingling can be okay if it is short (three seconds or less) and intermittent (not daily).
So, how do you know if feeling the burn is the good kind or the bad? Ahead, the pros explain how to keep from getting burned by your skin care.
When you use an exfoliator or scrub.
The tip off here is the word “acid.” Any face wash, peel pad, scrub, or mask with alpha-hydroxy, glycolic, lactic, or salicylic acids might cause some tingling. ‘The sensation could be because of their acidic pH or the concentration of the acid,’. The feeling should be fleeting. And again, tingling on a daily basis spells trouble for your skin. So if your weekly peel pad stings a bit, that’s fine. But if your every day face wash does, find a replacement.
Scrubs that slough with grains and microbeads shouldn’t sting, but can be harsh on the skin. Gentle exfoliants that have only a buffing effect on the skin are the way to go.
Below are two star exfoliants and with rejuvi exfoliant acting not only to sweep dead skin of but also a mask to deliver potent ingredients directly into the skin.
