I agree with Goodnightelizabeth. You should use lukewarm water all of the time. The key is to treat your skin gently, and not shock it with extreme temperatures. Hot water also has the danger of causing broken capillaries. Cold water cannot close the pores; that's a myth. Pores cannot open and close.
