I live where it is very hot in summer and a cold shower is really refreshing! Even in winter I have warm,rather than hot showers. I am one of those people who hate even the thought of a sauna,and to me a hot shower is as close as I would ever get to one!!! Really hot shower?No Thank You!! Tepid and cold ones? Yes
I have a cold shower every morning, it's great for many different kinds of health reasons! I wash in normal temperature water first (as nearly all products now are formulated to work best at that temperature) then turn the water temp right down to freezing and BLAST myself :) It feels wonderful!
I tend to start with a hot shower to relieve muscle aches and then progress to finishing with cold. Given that I live in Cairns where it is exceptionally hot at the moment if I finish up with hot I am sweaty again within seconds, if I finish up with cold I get a few minutes!
Yes, I take cold showers all the time. Whether the temperature is hot or cold, I'll take a cold shower. When it's hot a cold shower is great. If I take a warm shower when the temperature is cold,I would tend to actually feel cold throughout that day. I actually feel better taking a cold shower when the morning is cold.
no, I like it hot, although a relative who went to boarding school many years ago c1918 once told me that they had cold showers every morning , she maintained this was why she never caught a cold. I myself always catch a cold even if sitting in a breeze.
Unless your 'core' temperature got very low & your immune system was compromised, you would NOT get a cold from a breeze! It's a VIRUS, picked up from somebody's shared germs from coughing or sneezing over you, or dirty hands of yours' not being washed, as required!
Ops, No...I meant...back packing in Bali in Jan '95...NOT '19 of cause! My mum used to always have a very quick cold shower after her normal hot shower, & would tell us kids to as well, but I sort of dropped out of the habit after I left home. I just couldn't make myself do it!
