So I'm still trying to figure out whether it matters if you take a hot or cold or lukewarm or something-in-between shower.
All the answers I found around the web were like "Yes, hot water does dry your skin more than cold water" but none backed up with any reason or scientific evidence behind it. It only says "hot water strips oils from your skin" but water of really any temperature does that if I'm not mistaken and still a lot of people stress the "hot" aspect here.
But why is it that hot water dries the skin more or is it even true?
And in which other kind of ways does water temperature affect our skin?
