cold or hot water?

Do you guys wash your face with cold or hot water? I could see benefits to both as hot water kills bacteria and cold can have anti inflammatory effects. Dont forget hot and too warm are both bad! Curious on your opinions on this topic.

Hot water in order to kill bacteria needs to be boiling therefore the hot water used on the face doesn't kill bacteria. Hot water dryes out skin. Steam also drys out skin. Best to stay away. Cold water has cooling and depuffing benefits but if you're using oil based products or have lots of sebum on the surface of your skin, cold water won't effectively wash it off. Lukewarm water is ideal. Hope that helps πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

I go for room temp or slightly below (as the climate here is a steady 30 degrees c.) I do find that if I use warmer water I get less residue from cleansers, so they wash off quicker. but I really don't like hot water on my face. I think it would have to be really hot to kill any bacteria.

my goal is lukewarm but honestly, it's usually on the colder side just because I'm too impatient to wait for the sink water to heat up bc sometimes it takes a whileπŸ˜‚
