People take cold showers for several reasons. One is that they are hot. This is not a good idea. Shocking the body with cold water after running or being outside in hot weather can cause damage to your body. Sometimes, people will recommend taking a cold shower if you are hot and heavy towards someone.

However, there are only a few researched benefits that are true to taking cold showers. First, after taking a cold shower, it will make you more awake. It also makes your hair and skin glow. Cold showers help with circulation and it helps with losing weight. Furthermore, taking cold showers helps decrease depression and stress. Athletes also take cold showers not just because they are hot but because it helps their muscles may be less sore.
