Does it make a difference to wash your face with warm or cold water when it comes to great skin?

i prefer warm. cold water closes your pores, so i would first use warm water to wash my face, then use cold water (in the form of a toner) to close the pores.
i consider also warm water to be ideal for my skin, i don't like much extreme temperatures. cold or hot temperatures turn my skin into a big red tomato

Warm water opens up pores, so I like to wash with it.

i prefer to wash my face in warm water to get dirt and makup completely out and then I splash cold water on afterwards to close my pores.

Sometimes your cleanser will specify on the bottle, at least those with some type of exfoliating acid tend too. Mine recommends using cool water.

Aah I see. Thanks for sharing your hot/cold regimes...

I always wash my face with lukewarm water (when I am not taking a shower) to slightly cold. I was wondering about the pores indeed, that maybe they close when using a cold splash. Different opinions about that...

ITA!! I hate that pore myth!!!!!!

I have heard that using too hot or too cold water can harm skin and cause broken blood vessels and skin aging (hot water). I don't know for sure if it is true, but I just stay on the safe side and stick with luke warm water.

I agree, I love a splash of cold water after washing my face, it really wakes me up.
