Freezing Cold Showers Are Actually Good For You. Here's Why...

The health perks and beauty benefits might have you ditching hot water for good.

When did you last have a cold shower? We’re guessing it was when your boiler broke, or your housemates used up all the hot water. But a growing number of people are actually choosing to have them when they wake up in the mornings.

The pastime is nothing new, with evidence suggesting the ancient Greeks and Romans were fans of a chilly plunge, but cold showers seem to be having a revival. So, should we all be doing it?

Dr Abigail Rickard, an associate professor at the University of Greenwich, says cold bathing has a plethora of health benefits.

“The effects of cold showers are positive for the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, musculoskeletal system, giving us an immune boost, giving us better mental health, giving us a boost to our metabolism, potentially burning brown fats and potentially even making you more handsome,” she tells HuffPost UK.

“Having a shower with cold water will close pores in your skin and also make the cuticles in the hair lay flat so your hair will appear glossy, shiny and healthy,” Dr Rickard explains.

So, what are you waiting for? Turn that tap to cold every now and then, boost your health, and save some pennies on the heating bill in the process.
