Dermatologists say that the beauty and flawless appearance of the skin begins with the first stage of care – quality cleansing. At the same time, even in such a seemingly simple moment, dozens of questions arise. For example, what temperature should the water you use to wash off makeup and dirt from the skin surface be? Many people believe that warm water during washing helps to better dissolve sebum residues, remnants of makeup products, accumulated dust and dirt.
However, this is not entirely true. In fact, if you choose the right quality product for washing – whether foam, gel, or hydrophilic oil, it is able to cope well with cleaning in any temperature.
In this case, warm or hot water can dilate pores, increase blood flow, thus affecting blood vessels, as well as deplete the hydrolipid mantle and overdry the skin. That is why the best solution is to wash with cool or even cold water. In this case, as a bonus you will get toning and help the skin to wake up.
