Although there's nothing better than a hot shower to relax or wake up to on a cold morning, it could actually be damaging to your skin’s health.
As a general rule, if your skin stings in the shower, or becomes too hot to touch, your shower is too hot and it could be causing harm to your skin. This is because using hot water strips your skin of its natural oils and dries out your skin.
Please note that hot water shouldn’t be used directly on your face, as it can cause more harm than good. Cold water is much better.
