To help you learn how to best use water to your advantage in this way, here are three tips for using water as part of your beauty routine. 

Wash Your Face With Lukewarm Water 

For most people, using water to wash their face is part of their normal routine. But keep in mind that the temperature of water that you use can have a big impact on the quality of your skin. 

According to Sarah Kester, a contributor to Healthline.com, using lukewarm water to wash your face is best for all skin types. With lukewarm water, you won’t strip your skin of the protective oils that help your skin stay moisturized. Also, when you lukewarm water to cleanse your skin, your skin will have an easier time soaking in whatever products you use as part of your skincare routine, so you won’t be wasting your money on quality products that will just rub off of your face and not do the job you’re using them for. 

Use Cold Water As The Last Rinse Of Your Hair 

Although no one really wants to take a cold shower, rinsing your hair off with cold water as the last part of your shower or whenever you wash your hair can have big benefits for how your hair both looks and feels. 

When your hair is exposed to hot water, Alexis Bennett, a contributor to Self.com, shares that the cuticle of your hair opens up. This allows for products to penetrate more deeply but it also can make your hair look frizzy. But when you rinse with cold water, you seal shut that cuticle, which will allow for your hair to lay smoother and look sleeker. 

Soak In Warm Water Before Shaving 

If you’ve ever dry shaved before, you know how uncomfortable that experience can be. But if you’re able to soak in warm water before you shave whatever part of your skin, you may find that you have an easier time and get a better shave. 

According to Tom Scheve, a contributor to HowStuffWorks.com, soaking your skin in warm water before shaving will make the hair softer and will have it stand up straighter, which can help in getting a closer and smoother shave. This can help prevent a lot of razor burn, too. 

If you haven’t thought about the temperature of the water you use as part of your beauty routine, consider how making some changes could improve your experience.
