Let’s face it, there are a bunch of things that can go wrong when washing your face. For instance, you shouldn’t use bar soap or overuse a rough washcloth. However, there is one thing that is most important out of all the things that can go wrong. Here is the one thing you should never do when washing your face.

The temperature of water you use to wash your face plays a really important role in your skin care routine. If the water is too hot, you are increasing the risk of irritating your skin and causing minor burns or rashes. On the other hand, if you use was that is too cold, you can cause the capillaries in your face to break. Plus, using hot or cold water can cause excess dryness, which is obviously not ideal.

Your best bet is to use lukewarm water when washing your face. You won’t be risking irritation or dryness. Trust us, your skin will thank you!
