If you're in the shower, it makes sense to wash your face while you're in there too, right? Wrong. According to Mother Nature Network, the shower is the last place for face-washing. That's because the water's too hot for delicate facial skin, and you stay in the shower too long. Too much exposure to water can actually dehydrate and irritate the skin. Also, the water pressure is too high. Stinging jets of water may feel great on sore shoulders, but it can harm the skin by dragging it downwards. Finally, shampoo and body wash tends to leave a residue on the face, which raises the pH level and causes dry skin. So, now you know!
