Benefits Of Washing Your Face with Cold Water

A good skin tip that I share with my clients is that after cleansing the skin, give a final rinse or just splash your skin with cold water, as this offers several benefits to the skin.

Have you noticed why your face looks a little puffy in the morning just when you are up from the bed? This is because when we sleep our cells regenerate hence our pores expand and our faces seems a little puffy.  A splash of cold water is all that you need. Washing your face with cold water has magical effects, especially in the morning. Here are few other benefits of washing your face with cold water:

– It tighten your pores. After washing your face with hot water, splash some cold water on it so that it closes your pores. Not just this, it also soothes your eyes.

– Cold water works great as an anti-wrinkle cream! It tones the skin making it look fresh and younger. Use cold water regularly to wash your face as it will slow down the aging process and helps to fill out the wrinkles on your face.

– It also helps you get rid of the harmful effects of sun’s rays, as cold water tightens and protects the pores that gets opened up when the skin is exposed to sun’s harmful rays. The tightening of pores may also help your make up to stay on longer.

-Reduces post-shower redness by constricting capillaries and fades the flush in the skin. 

-It may help your products absorb better because when the capillaries instantly constrict, it creates a pulling effect on the skin, which may help to pull your products deeper into the skin, allowing for increased and enhanced results.

My experiment taught me that all that hype about the ice water facial was certainly not for nothing. Even though I initially doubted it’s ability, I can confidently say that the frigid polar plunge constricted my pores, de-puffed my skin, and gave me glowing skin — just as all those celebs and websites had promised. And there’s also no doubt it woke me up (that’s for sure!). But considering it requires uncomfortably dunking your whole face into a bowl of freezing cold water, I wouldn’t recommend it for everyday.

Perhaps it can be an occasional treat on a special day, preparation for a big event, or even a last resort when your skin is feeling extra dull and tired. Even though I loved the way my skin glowed and felt all day long, I can’t imagine making the ice water facial part of my daily routine.

So next time you are finished cleansing your skin, remember all the benefits that can be revealed with a simple splash!

 

 

How to get rid of Large Pores

How to achieve perfect pores? Many people suffer from dilated or open pores, both male and female, mainly oily skin. Open pores are not only a matter of genetics, it is also affected by hormonal changes, the passage of time as the skin loses elasticity and therefore the ability for regeneration. The production of fat shields us from external agents, but the excess of sebum’s production causes our pores to increase in size and as a result becomes prone to be dirty and infected.

What is the function of the pores?

Their main job is to eliminate sweat, toxins and waste substances but also absorb the external nutrients from the creams or skin care treatments. Pores help us regulate body temperature and moisturize our skin. Both the seborrheic glands, as the hair follicles, the sweat glands end in the pores. Hence the importance of taking care of our skin with quality cosmetic products designed for each skin is essential.

Causes of large pores:

  • Lack of hygiene
  • Stress is our worst enemy
  • Smoking
  • Hereditary factors
  • Hormonal disorders
  • As we age, the skin loses its elasticity and therefore the capacity for regeneration decreases
  • Menopause
  • Lack of sleep (a skin without enough rest is more likely to be unbalanced)
