This health hack will throw you right back to your college days. Yup, we want you to ice yourself. Nope, not with Smirnoff (you’re welcome), but with cold showers. Why? Because of this laundry list of benefits:
Improves blood circulation
Helps close your pores
Makes your hair, skin and nails healthier
For men, improves fertility
Accelerated muscle recovery
Don’t go straight Ice Bucket Challenge on us—take it slow. Commit to 3 cold shower days a week. When you hop in, wash your hair, clean behind your ears, go about your normal routine. Then, for the last three minutes, cool it down to a temp that’s slightly uncomfortable, and progressively make it colder and colder with every shower.
