Washing Your Face: Hot Vs Cold Water

Should You Wash Your Face With Hot or Cold Water?

To put it simply: washing your skin in hot water is bad for it. It strips your skin of its natural oils which can cause your skin to dry out, which can destroy skin barrier and aggravate other skin concerns such as eczema, psoriasis and more. An effective moisturiser will be extra important after using hot water on your skin.

The best temperature to wash and rinse your face is with lukewarm water, it helps minimise the chance of irritation.

Another way you can help minimise skin issues and redness while washing your face is by using gentle, non-abrasive cleansers.


Is Cold Water Good For Your Skin?

The short answer is Yes!!

Water tightens the appearance of your skin, so it may make you look renewed and refreshed. It also helps boost your circulation, which can help give your skin a healthier appearance, albeit temporarily.

Should I Wash My Face With Cold Water Before Bed?

When you wash with lukewarm or cold water is entirely up to you, but you may want to avoid cold water just before you hit the hay. It may make you feel more awake and may interfere with your sleep. If you prefer cold water, give your skin plenty of time to warm back up before you go to bed.



By far one of the best serums I've used, due to order another soon

I've had compliments on how flawless my make up looks already ..didn't think I would see a difference this fast tbh. So I wanted to get some as gifts. Thank you for the code will be placing my order today xx


I look and feel young again!! I have started using SXC No Dark Circles Serum. I had good skin anyways but this product has just taken it a step further. My skin is glowing and I look and feel young!"


My skin has gone lighter don't know if it's my head it's day 5!I have been using the SXC no dark circle serum daily and I'm not going to lie. I'm giving my honest review I felt my skin has gone lighter don't know if it's my head it's day 5!!! I feel it's tight and clean. Overall my skin feels amazing.


I've received my order and have only worn it once which was last night!! I woke up to my face feeling soft and plump. No a single new spot in sight, alhamdullilah. I have high expectations for this serum as nothing else seems to work. On and I'm so glad it's not an greasy serum.


Ive started using the serum for about 1 week and I can feel my skin looking more flawless. Highly recommended


Honestly this really is a miracle serum. I’ve spent a fortune on so many that did nothing for my skin. I honestly saw a difference within a few days of using this serum day and night, others also noticed so definitely worked. Just ordered myself another 2, literally magic in a bottle 😊


The serum is great its light weight and doesnt feel greasy. I have been using this everyday since and noticed a massive differance in the apprence of my acne scars. My skin feels beautiful I highly recommend! You get fast results!
