We often look at people with flawless skin and think how lucky they are to be blessed with such radiance. Genes do make it easy, but a good skincare routine is extremely important for maintaining radiant skin. Washing your face with hot water can cause the skin to dry as it depletes natural oils. People with great skin make sure they wash their face with lukewarm or cold water instead.
American dermatologist Elizabeth Tanzi says she even avoids hot tubs and steam rooms to ensure her skin retains natural moisturizing oils, and washes her face separately with tepid water when taking a warm shower.
