Admit it, just about everyone washes their face while showering whenever they’re lazy. However, here are some of the reasons why you shouldn’t.
It Doesn't Get Rid Of Makeup
No matter how clean your face might look after the shower, there’s bound to be a little bit of makeup debris somewhere on your face.
From experience, we know that eye makeup is difficult to remove and it sucks to wake up with black rings around your eyes the next morning.
So, instead of washing your makeup off in the shower, take some time to remove it with an oil cleanser before stepping into the shower.
The Water Can Sometimes Irritate Your Skin
The skin on our bodies tends to be a little thicker while the skin on our faces can be a little more sensitive.
The water we use to shower with can sometimes be too hot for our facial skin to handle and this can often lead to dryness and skin irritation.
Your Face Doesn't Actually Get Cleaner
Often times, when you’ve cleansed your face and proceed to shampoo your hair, shampoo residue and other debris from your scalp could land on your face and stay there, clogging pores more than it needs to be.
You're Also Wasting Water
Think about it, when you’re washing your face at the sink, you’re more likely to use less water.
However, when you’re washing your face in the shower, it’s easy to go overboard on the water supply and use more than you need. Plus, experts believe using too much water when cleansing can actually lead to dry skin.
It Can Dilate Your Blood Vessels
Besides the usual dryness and irritation, washing your face with hot water in the shower can dilate blood vessels and leave you with patchy red skin.
