Washing your face alternately with hot and cold water turns out to be a misunderstanding of facial cleaning


The wrong way to wash your face will make the skin thin, dry, and prone to pain, and it will also accelerate the production of wrinkles, acne, red blood, and over time will make you older than others. A scientific face wash is probably the most important way to care for your skin.

Can washing your face alternately with hot and cold water really shrink pores? In fact, there is no scientific basis for this in clinical practice, and it is not recommended to do so. Washing your face alternately with hot and cold water may also cause damage to the skin. Let’s take a look at the precautions for washing your face.
The number of times of washing the face should not be too much, and the time of washing the face should not be too long, which will easily lead to excessive cleaning of the skin. After the stratum corneum of the skin is over-soaked with water, the skin will appear maceration, lack of barrier protection, and gradually become sensitive skin.

Washing your face with alternating hot and cold water will not shrink pores and will damage the stratum corneum of our skin.


Alternating hot and cold water can stimulate the microcirculation of the skin, thus bringing more possibilities for the penetration of subsequent skin care products. It has nothing to do with the size of the pores. If the temperature difference is too large, it may increase the sensitivity of the skin.

The oily skin is not because of lack of water, but because the oil glands secrete too much oil. It is recommended to use products containing salicylic acid and fruit acid.

In fact, it is not because of lack of water, but because it is difficult to absorb water, so try to use as few cleansing products as possible to wash your face, and simply clean it.

The foundation sunscreen needs to be removed, and the general sunscreen can be washed.


Do not wash your face with a towel. The towels in the bathroom are easy to breed bacteria and cause microbial contamination of the face. It is recommended to wash your face directly instead of using a towel.

Do not wash your face with milk or rice water. Many people think that milk is rich in protein, which can moisturize the skin and whiten the skin, but in fact, the protein will not be directly absorbed by the face.

Rice washing water will not achieve the effect of brightening the skin, and it may also clog the pores, which is not conducive to the health of the skin.

Proper face washing is the key to good skin. Instead of spending a lot of time and money to go to the beauty salon for skin care, it is better to correctly understand the misunderstandings of washing your face, correct the wrong way of washing your face, and wash your face correctly every day.
