The One Thing You Shouldn't Wash In The Shower Is Your Face

I wash my face at least once a day (twice if I’m feeling productive) and I prefer to do so while in the shower. Why? I find that when I wash my face by the sink, I always make a mess. Water gets splashed everywhere and my shirt gets soaking wet. My face also feels more clean when I wash it in the shower. I don’t know maybe it’s psychological. Anyway, when I was informed by my co-workers that you shouldn’t wash your face in the shower, I was completely baffled.

Dr. Elizabeth Tanzi, co-director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington D.C., told The Gloss, “I recommend that my patients wash their faces at the sink [instead]. [You can gauge the temperature more effectively] and should use lukewarm to cold water, which is better for delicate faces.”

Cold water also seals your pores, which doesn’t allow excess dirt and oil to get trapped beneath. In addition, lukewarm or cold water won’t strip your skin of its natural oils. Although it’s an extra step, try washing your face by the sink and not in the hot shower and see if it makes a difference with your skin.

Don’t miss two reasons why you should shorten your shower time and here’s how to take a proper shower!
