Extreme temperatures can be damaging to the skin.
Using hot water for face can increase skin sensitivity. Hot water strips the skin of its natural oils leading to dry, itchy skin and redness. If you have oily skin, it could strip the natural oils, and as a result, the skin will make more sebum than usual.
While cold water helps to deal with puffiness and inflammation, it is not so effective in getting rid of dirt and excessive sebum on the skin surface. It may even clog pores over time.
