21 Health Benefits of a Cold Shower

Alexa Fleckenstein, M.D., author of Health20, has a few things to say about cold showers. Within the book, she writes:

“Cold water can do more than just wash away sweat, dirt, old skin cells, bacteria, and viruses:

Hot water opens up the pours, do this to get your face n sh*t ready and you should finish washing off your soap etc with cold water.

I can't even handle a cold shower, I cant make myself do it.

I like a really hot steaming shower, wash everywhere and turn around in circles for a few mins then turn the heat down to warm before getting out.

I can't imagine being able to clean properly with cold water.

might be a stupid question but is this why i always feel healthy on holiday? because i'm in a cold pool for most of the day (the sun obviously plays a big part but still)
