In fact, these views are wrong and the right choice is warm water. If you can, it is highly recommended to use pure water. Warm pure water not only keeps the pores open, but also ensures that you do not lose too much of the protective oils on your face. You know, tap water has damaged your skin.
Step 2 Cleanser and Foaming

Using water that is too hot can irritate your skin and dry out your skin.
