Taking cold showers instead of hot showers provides surprising health benefits -from burning fat to depression relief — for our skin and body.
The cold water prevented the formation of colds, flu and other infections.
The cold water helps to speed up of blood flow.
3.Tolerance to Stress
In general, exposure to the cold gives your body a higher tolerance to stress. Over time, this leads to the strengthening of your body and immune system (as we talked about earlier).
4.Refines Hair and Skin
Cold water helps to close pores. Closed pores keep your skin looking smooth and healthy, without drying your skin out as hot water can. The cold water helps keep your hair shiny and your skin soft, rather than itchy, ashy, and dried out.
Cold showers can get you to breathe deeply by forcing you to pause and hold your breath as a sort of automatic reaction when the cold water hits. This helps open up your lungs (just like physical exercise does), bringing in more oxygen.
When your body is exposed to cold, it requires more heat to warm you up. To heat you up, it has to process more energy, which means it has to burn fatter more efficiently than normal. Being cold can also activate brown fat, which is a sort of good fat that helps generate heat boost your metabolism, and burn fat.
Regular cold showers help to reduce heat loss, decrease your core body temperature, and regulate your overall body temperature.
