Showering and washing our face is part of our morning routine, but should we be doing both at the same time? We’ve heard from many people that washing your face in the shower is not only bad for your skin, but that it can actually harm your skin. We’re here to set the record straight on if it’s okay to wash your face in the shower.
Is it Good or Bad?
There’s not really a direct answer to this question, but your showers shouldn’t be long or hot because they will dry out your skin. If you take a quick shower and quickly wash your face then you should be fine as long as you’re not spending time exfoliating or cleansing your face.
When Should You Wash Your Face?
Many people think that washing your face in the morning isn’t necessary, but this isn’t the case especially if you use products at nighttime. Washing your face in the morning gives your face a fresh start for applying morning products and makeup.
Hot or Colder Water?
You’ve probably heard that hot water opens up your pores and cold water closes them, but that’s actually not true. It’s best to use lukewarm water and if you have redness or inflammation, cold water can help soothe your skin and reduce the redness.
