Dr. Katie Rodan: Most people wash their face at the sink and do an excellent job of thoroughly rinsing products off of their face. However, many times cleanser residue can run down the sides of the neck, where it is wiped off with a towel. Without proper rinsing, over time the skin can become dry, red or irritated. Also, skin on the neck is more sensitive and reactive to any strong products.
Here is the solution: Make sure to splash the water up around the neck and over the jawline to thoroughly remove the UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash off of the skin. Should a rash form, try layering a small amount of 1% hydrocortisone cream to ease redness or irritation, followed by a gentle moisturizer over the area. If the rash persists longer than a few days, please see a dermatologist.
