After waking up in the morning, you probably wash your face with lukewarm water. But what if it was a bad habit? Here are 5 good reasons to wash your face with cold water, the benefits of which have now been proven!
1) COLD WATER REDUCES SWELLING
Cold water contains a witching impact on the morning swelling of the eyes and face. It acts as a soothing agent for the eyes and eyelids. Its benefits have been proven in the most ancient cultures: they resorted to cool and icy water sources to relieve their tired faces and get rid of the bags that form under the eyes.
2) COLD WATER TIGHTENS PORES
That’s right! It acts as a toner and tightens the pores that dilate at night. It prevents the secretion of sebum and avoids the shine of the skin. If you have oily skin, the result is even more visible! It gives you an unparalleled feeling of freshness and well-being!
3) Cold water, a substitute for makeup?
It has been scientifically proven that cold water also promotes blood circulation and enhances the radiance of the face and body. You end up with a face jam-packed with vitality and particularly color! You don’t need to wear makeup, especially if you are one of those women who don’t like to wear makeup in the morning. You are then more beautiful naturally! Cold water makes you look good!
4) PRESERVES YOUR COMPLEXION
Sebum is an oily substance that gives your face an unpleasant and dull look. It also attracts the sun’s harmful rays. In this sense, cold water immediately tightens the pores and prevents sebum from accumulating on the skin. Exposed to the sun, you are then more protected and you keep the color of your complexion.
5) COLD WATER, A NATURAL ANTI-WRINKLE
Ice water acts as an essential anti-wrinkle: it tones the face as well as the body, and allows the skin to stay young longer. It slows down the aging process and acts like a “Botox” every morning, especially for the tiny wrinkles around the eyes. You certainly don’t want to age so soon?
Finally, the benefits of cold water are not only recognized for the face, but also for the body! Don’t heat your pool unless necessary, and take cold showers from time to time. Apart from the feeling of well-being, it stimulates sleep and helps you relax in the evening: that’s why cold baths are highly recommended for insomniacs.
