Washing with cold water?

Recommended Posts

I used to have really bad acne. I can't remember why I got onto the idea (probably read it on here) but I didn't wash my face for like a month and my skin cleared up a massive amount.

I then would wash my face once or twice a week max, because every time I did, several hours later I'd get oily skin. 

One time my boiler broke, so I had to take ice cold showers and I noticed my skin didn't get oily. Now I wash 1x day with cold to ice cold water, and my skin is fine.

Since hot showers are nice, I occasionally cave, and sure enough my skin will be oily come 5PM.

I don't use any soap either.

Thoughts? Anyone have similar experiences.
