5 Things That Can Happen to Your Body If You Start Taking Cold Showers

BONUS: the cons of hot showers

It’s understandable why you love taking hot showers, especially after a hard day at work. But you should know that the high temperature of the water can create more problems for you.

  • It can irritate your skin: Hot water damages the keratin cells that are all over your skin, making it dry and dull. This way, your skin feels irritated and itchy since all the moisture is being kept from entering.
  • It can make skin conditions worse: Eczema and acne are quite common in many people, and hot temperatures can worsen their symptoms. That’s because they need extra moisture to calm down, and hot water takes that away.
  • It can damage your hair too: These keratin cells aren’t only located on your body, but also on your head. And hot water weakens your hair and, in some people, causes hair loss.
  • It can increase blood pressure: Yes, if you are suffering from certain heart conditions or cardiovascular problems, you might want to ditch hot water.

Do you take cold showers often? If so, have you noticed any changes in your physical and mental health?
