Cold water, that's crazy, but so is using a cleanser, so maybe they go hand in hand and you should use cold water with a cleanser. Now coconout oil and hot water is my favorite.

They also claim that cold water will get the blood flowing, but hot water will too. You can actually see it, your face will turn red.

ifeelgood,

Yes, but that could be because of the capillaries bursting! Hot water is a no-no, even according to conventional dermatologists. Cool water or tepid water are traditionally considered safest for facial skin.

Cold water doesn't work all that wonderfully with OCM though. I love the feeling of a hot cloth to wipe off the oil, it's so nice.

It is not just the face, hands should be washed with cold water [well.blogs.nytimes.com]

I've heard that people whose capillaries are situated close to the skin (if your face gets red easily apparently you're one of those), should not wash their face either with cold or with hot water. For them body temperature is the best.

But if you are lucky to have normal capillaries then even wiping your face with an ice cube is great, they say it acts like a tonic for the skin, similarly to having an ice cold shower.

The long term effect of washing dishes with hot or warn water can be easily observed, hands and fingers for some are aging faster than the rest of the body.

How can you differentiate it from the effect of water per se (we wash dishes longer than we wash our face, plus we wash our face and shower etc - which adds to the amount of water applied to hands and fingers), and from the effect of dishwashing liquid?

Just check the hands and finger of older housekeepers and compare them with those of their non cooking spouses

That might have something to do with cleaning products. And the inherent health of the person in question too.
My 63 y/o mama has great skin all over, including her hands, and she's washed a lot of dishes by hand (and clothes, and kids, etc).

Hot or warm water cleans better than cold when it comes to dishes, I'm going to assume that's the same for other things. Though I wash most laundry in cold water, sheets, towels, and undies all get done in hot.

Same question, how can you differentiate the effect of hot/warm water on the hands of older housekeepers, from the effect of water per se on their hands plus washing liquid? smiling smiley


Until you do, you cannot suggest that hands of older housekeepers are aging faster because of hot/warm water.

soap in general is bad. hot water would be similar by stripping our natural oils out of us. I have started using only conditioner in the shower. people that use shampoo and soap you can see have dryness issues ALL THE TIME !

You got a point, difficult to prove but hot water is not helping at all for sure

Yeah cold showers in general are better for health. Ive been on them for the last few months and rarely have hot showers any more.

Benefits of cold showers -

As one form of hydrotherapy, the health benefits of cold water therapy are numerous. Cold showers provide a gentle form of stress that leads to thermogenesis (internal generation of body heat), turning on the body’s adaptive repair systems to strengthen immunity, enhance pain and stress tolerance, and ward off depression, overcome chronic fatigue syndrome, stop hair loss, and stimulate anti-tumor responses.

21 Health Benefits of a Cold Shower

Alexa Fleckenstein, M.D., author of Health20, has a few things to say about cold showers. Within the book, she writes:

Sounds logica to me. Thx for posting this. When I used to signwrite with paint and brushes, I always cleaned up with turpentine. And even though I used to immediately, or as soon after as possibel, wash of the turps with soap and cold water, my hands looked like the hands of an eighty year old. But since computers hit the signage scene, my hands have improved markedly although still look older than my age.

Cheers, jalan
