face red after washing

just wanted to know if this happens to anyone else. after i wash my face like in the shower or wahtever, it gets really red. sometimes ill use a glycolic or a salicilic acid wash, and sometimes ill use a really gentle wash and it happens no matter what wash i use. this doesnt happen all the time, sometimes ill wash and my face looks just fine. i just think its really weird.

Re: face red after washing

Maybe your face is just irritated. Just wash it with water for a couple of days and see what happens.

Re: face red after washing

Are you using hot water in the shower? Maybe yuo should wash your face seperately in the basin. I never wash my face in the shower. First i shower (i have a hand shower), then i wash face after in the basin. I soap up with warm water then rinse with warm then cold water.

Re: face red after washing

maybe you scrub too hard....that may bring blood to the face area and increase circulation, making you red. try rubbing your face really gently and see what happens.
