Brrr! Not likely, most of us would exclaim. However, if you take a look at some of the health benefits of a cold shower you might change your mind. A freezing cold dunk or a dose of ‘hydrotherapy’ as it is more formally known in the morning will not only help improve your circulation.
According to studies it will also strengthen your immune system, increase your metabolism (which could lead to weight loss), and even get rid of the morning blues. A cold shower will also keep your skin and hair healthy, as cold water is non drying and tightens hair follicles and skin pores.
So cold shower = healthy adonis. Worth a try then?
The best way to introduce yourself to cold showers is to start off with a normal shower and then brace yourself for a final blast of 30 seconds of cold water – hard core hygiene boys. Sounds totally invigorating.
We’re going to try it.
