The Best Temperature To Wash With!

Control Your Temper-Ature!


You can have the best ALL-NATURAL skincare products, and practice all the right hygiene habits, but you're still not getting the smooth, healthy skin you want. The likely culprit ...?




In fact, many people don't realize that washing with the wrong water temperature can lead to increased skin sensitivity, a loss of natural oils, and dry skin. (1)

In this blog we talk about what temperature you should wash with to get the most out of your ALL-NATURAL SKINCARE ROUTINE!




Everyone knows the importance of washing, especially today. But just as important as the ALL-NATURAL products you use is the temperature of the water you choose to wash with.

This relationship is actually science-based, as negative changes in the temperature of the water you use can affect your blood vessels, leaving you with dilated vessels and unwanted splotchiness. (2)

And it's important to remember - the temperature of the water you use is not as important as you might think in actually scrubbing off germs. Therefore, it's best to go the safe route and opt for comfort, even if that means cooler temperatures. (3)


FUN FACT: Hot water can remove important natural oils from your skin barrier. Restore and regulate your body's important oils (without causing breakouts!) today with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL NORMALIZING FACE OIL! (4)


Though many people think water temperature can alter how your pores look, this isn't really the case. In fact, water temperature can increase the chances of you developing skin irritation and rosacea.

The best temperature to wash with is the balance between hot and cold - lukewarm water - which will still efficiently clean your skin, while not scalding you or creating dilated vessels. (5)

Lukewarm water can also be effectively combined with a quick splash of cold water, but as a general rule of thumb, use an ALL-NATURAL SKINCARE ROUTINE with lukewarm water to get your skin safely cleansed of the dangerous bacteria and dirt you encounter throughout the day. (6)

So lukewarm water is best, but what if you prefer the extremes? Let's dive into why cold and hot water are not always the best for your skin.




Let's start off by saying that cold water does have its benefits. In fact, cold water can make your pores appear smaller and reduce puffiness, while also being easy on acne-prone and dry skin.

However, cold water's benefits also make it less effective at actually cleaning your face, as shrunken pores can't be as thoroughly cleaned as you'd probably like. (7)

Using cold water can also trap the dirt and bacteria under your skin, making it even more difficult to clean out later, so washing with lukewarm water is best (at least before you turn on the cold). (8)


FUN FACT: Cold water may fight the overproduction of sebum, important for people with acne-prone and oily skin. Moisturize your skin and restore your natural glow today with GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL BODY OIL! (9)


Though most people associate skin irritation with boiling hot water when washing, cold water has its issues too, especially for those with rosacea, sensitivity, or other skin conditions.

Washing with cold water can cause a potential rosacea flareup, and can also cause acne breakouts because of the trapping of dirt and bacteria under your skin. (10)

Many dermatologists recommend cold water as beneficial in the morning if your face is looking a little puffy after sleep due to natural cell regeneration and expanded pores. (11)

So we know the dirt (pun intended) on cold water, but what about hot? I mean, after all, who doesn't love a nice steaming shower at the end of a long day? Well, probably your skin.

Hot water creates an increased level of sensitivity, while also removing your natural oils, which can cause your body to overproduce more oil - leading to shiny skin and breakouts. (12)

Many people also don't know that hot water is also incredibly abrasive, and can cause your skin to feel dry, especially in the dry weather, all the more important as we enter summer. (13)


FUN FACT: Washing with cold water can reduce eye puffiness. Reduce puffy eyes today with the witch hazel found in GARNER'S GARDEN 100% ALL-NATURAL PURE FACIAL TONER! (14)


The word oil gets a bad wrap, but your natural oil is actually incredibly important, as it both protects you and maintains a barrier that locks your moisture in - both very important during dry air seasons.

This also applies to when you're washing your hands, as hot water destroys the important lipid barrier of your skin, thus flooding you with an overflow of blood. (15) (16)

And if you're washing your face while showering, it's especially important you turn the faucet down. So if you feel like you need that hot shower (even though we recommend lukewarm water!), be sure you're washing your face outside your shower to not upset your delicate skin. (17)
