5 Amazing Benefits Of Cold Showers

Taking cold showers instead of hot showers provides surprising health benefits — from burning fat to improved immune system and circulation — for our skin and body.

1.Cold showers boost recovery after exercise

There is nothing better to reduce soreness after vigorous work out than ice baths, which athletes take regularly. 

If you think that`s too much for you, you can simply take a quick shower after your training session.

2.Cold shows burn fat

Our body has two kinds of fat: 

white and brown fat. 

White fat is the bad fat which is created after we consume more calories than our body needs and those calories get accumulated at the waist, lower back, neck and thighs. 

Brown fat is responsible for generating heat to keep the body warm. 

What you don`t know is that brown fat is activated due to extreme cold and it burns calories in order to keep the body warm, which results in weight loss. 

According to Scandinavian researchers, the exposure to cold temperatures increases the metabolic rate of brown fat by 15 fold, which can help you lose 9 pounds in a year.

3.Cold showers strengthen immunity and circulation

Cold showers boost your immune system by stimulating the release of virus-fighting white blood cells that will protect you from colds and other illnesses. 

Also, they improve the blood circulation which prevents hypertension and hardening of the arteries.

4.Cold showers give you attractive hair and skin

Cold water has the ability to tighten your cuticles and pores, preventing them to get clogged which means that it protects your skin from acne. 

Cold showers are also good for your hair because they make it smooth and shiny. 

They close the cuticles making them less susceptible to dirt.

5.Cold showers increase mood and alertness

You have often been advised to take cold shower immediately after waking up because it deepen your breathing, increase your heart rate resulting in improved blood circulation and your body will be energized and prepared for the day.
