Cold water will give you mental and physical energy. A cold shower before school will allow you to study better, before work will allow you to work better, before your gym will allow you to train better.

2. Skin and hair

According to studies, the quality of hair and skin often drops due to hot water. The hot water opens the pores of the scalp and thereby removes the natural oils that are present in the scalp. Many women spend a fortune on treating their hair, but if they try the cold shower, chances are that the treatment would be less frequent.

The skin is also affected. Indeed, the hot shower opens the pores of the skin and the bacteria penetrate there. Cold water does not open the pores of the skin and does not give the pimples the opportunity to appear.

If you catch a cold quickly, you often have colds and fever … a cold shower stimulates the rebirth and proliferation of immune cells. You will naturally be immune to many diseases, including the winter cold.

Hot water leads many men to cases of infertility. In contrast, cold water boosts fertility for both women and men.

How to take a cold shower?

There are 3 methods to adapt to the cold shower.

1. The gradual method

This is the method I recommend if this is your first cold shower. Start your shower normally as usual. Then lower the temperature gradually. Hot water, then lukewarm and finally cold.

2. The planned method

Take a cold shower straight away, but start with your head, then your chest, back, and then your feet. Don’t go from the bottom up.

3. The crazy method

Scream, jump, fight to stay under cold water. This is a method that I don’t recommend at first.
