Skincare Myth: You need to wash your face with hot water to get it clean.
Yes, that steamy hot shower feels good. But washing your face with hot water can damage your skin's natural protective barrier and dry it out. Another reason to steer clear of hot water: A lot of common skin conditions and issues, like rosacea and eczema, can actually get triggered by hot temperatures. So what temperature should you use? Dermatologists recommend using lukewarm temperature for cleansing the face since it's optimal for activating your cleansing product and removing bacteria and dirt from the skin's surface without stripping it of natural oils.
Did you know that finishing off with cold water has great benefits? In addition to waking you up in the morning, it can also decrease puffiness. So go ahead and splash your face with cold water after cleansing. Better yet, enjoy the benefits of ice therapy with our Beauty Pops!
