Quick Tip: Be Cool to Your Skin

Avoid using hot water to cleanse your skin, especially your face. Using water that is too warm will strip away too much of your skin's own moisture and protective barrier, leading to dry, irritated skin.

Use lukewarm water to wash, and make the last few splashes as cold as you can stand; the chill will help to close pores and reduce any puffiness.

I heard that warm water opens your pores, cold closes it. When I cleanse I use warm water on a face cloth, but not HOT water, and after I cleanse normally then I rinse with cold water.
