Washing your body with cold water has magical effects! Cold Water Therapy as some call it, is actually more beneficial to your skin and hair. Cold water does not dry out the skin unlike hot water. Cold water therapy is also great for reducing wrinkles because cold water tones the skin, Leaving it looking younger for a long time.
Here is how the Cold Water Therapy works: Bath your entire body in cold water for 2-4 minutes at the end of your warm shower.
This post will list easy & simple ways of using cold water on your skin/hair that you probably didn't know could be beneficial, so lets begin!
1. Our skin & hair is protected by a layer of natural oil known as SEBUM. Hot water can dry out this oil causing your skin/hair to become weak. On the other hand, a cold refreshing bath not only makes the hair shiny, reduces breakage, it also makes the skin glow healthily. Cold shower therapy is a great anti-ageing secret for achieving firmer skin and a radiant glow.
2. Cold water rinses after the shampoo and conditioning process helps seal in cuticle to prevent split ends. It also balances extremely oily scalp.
3. Cold water rejuvenates the skin: Your pores remain open when you have a hot shower, so to seal or tighten your pores naturally, give your body a cold splash of water. It prevents your skin from clogging and reduces acne blemishes too!
4. For the guys, Cold Water does increase testosterone hormonal levels! I bet you didn't even know this right? lol
So when next you want to take a nice shower, opt for the cold knob. Or better still, after your warm shower, run the cold water over your body for 2-4 minutes.
