Hot Water

Related Acne Archive Posts & Questions

Is hot water ok for your skin? i heard that it can dry out the skin or even burst capilaries. i’ve been washing with hot(as possible) water to open the pores, then splashing with cold water to close it. i wonder if im doing more harm than good?

    Use lukewarm water to open your pores. Hot will only burn your skin and irritate pimples. Then as you said splash with cold to close them. Or you can ice your face instead of using cold water if you have a good set of active acne.

    Really it helps you dana?

    Mmmm… I have always read its not good cause it opens your pores and increase chance of infection. Will have to do more research in this one. :eek
