- It consumes a lot of time to rewarm your body if you are in a cold environment.
- The cold temperature will be a little harsh on the body’s immune system when you are sick!
- Thus, avoid showering with cold water when you are sick!
- It will make your skin dry and cause irritation.
- This may lead to itchiness.
- Increase blood pressure.
Nevertheless, there is a silver lining to that. Hot water improves brain, muscle, and joint health. Aside from that, it also improves our sleep quality and provides relief from respiratory and flu symptoms.
Everything has its good and bad, and that includes when showering with hot and cold water!
