8 Surprising Cold Shower Benefits

Do you dislike the cold? Well, taking cold showers is actually good for you! Here are some surprising cold shower benefits that should convince you to make the switch.

Benefits of Cold Showers

1. Good for circulation – By reducing your core temperature, cold showers will make your body work twice as hard to warm itself up. Your body does this by increasing the blood flow to the surface of your skin, which helps promote healthy blood circulation.

2. Soothe sore muscles – Hard day at the gym? Have a cold shower after. As opposed to a hot shower, the cold water will help promote faster blood flow to areas of your body that are sore for instant relief. It’s also the same reason why a cold shower feels much better after a tiring day.

3. Helps with depression – If you experience symptoms of depression, a cold shower may help improve your mood as the temperature can trigger electrical impulses in the brain to help boost your energy levels. A cold shower can also help provide relief from stress.

4. Immune system support – Surprisingly, your immune system can also get a boost from a cold shower. Studies have shown that cold showers help increase the number of white blood cells that are present in your bloodstream, stimulating a stronger and better immune response.

5. It will wake you up – If you have trouble waking up in the morning, a cold shower will definitely get you going. In fact, a cold shower will not only wake you up but also significantly increase your alertness and energy for the rest of the day.

6. It will put you to sleep – While a cold shower is a great way to start your day energized, cold therapy is also one of the best ways to get a good night’s sleep. If you’ve had a rough and exhausting day, then a cold shower to ease your mind is sure to help you sleep better.

7. Increased willpower – For people who are used to warm baths, enduring the cold for extended periods of time takes a strong mind. By incorporating cold showers into your daily routine, you will build your willpower, which can have a positive impact on many aspects of your daily life.

8. It will do wonders for your skin and hair – Want healthier skin and hair? According to dermatologists, a cold shower helps preserve the natural oils in our skin and hair, letting them shine and glow. Cold showers can also help reduce inflammation, puffiness and swelling.
