For most people, taking a shower means cleaning from head to toe. Though it might be easier to wash your entire body at one go, doctors have pointed out one area to ignore when taking a shower: your face.
Dermatologists note that the face is one of the most sensitive areas of your body, so it’s crucial for it to be cleaned gently. If you’re someone who takes steaming hot showers, leave out your face because the heat can cause long-lasting damage to your skin.
“Hot water and temperatures will dilate blood vessels and capillaries,” Rachel Nazarian, MD, from Schweiger Dermatology Group, informed Marie Claire. “That can leave skin red and aggravate conditions like rosacea, which ultimately leads to broken and permanently dilated vessels.”
