does it actually have benefits or is it just a meme?

Here's an experiment:

put oil on a spoon
run that spoon under cold water
watch how barely anything happens
run same spoon under hot water
watch how the oil begins coming off

Hot shower does the same shit to your skin and hair, forcing you to replace it with man-made substitutes. Redundant, consumerist horseshit, also never as good as the natural thing. But that's coming from someone with dryish skin and curly hair, so I don't take moisturizers for granted.

That doesn't even factor in all the shock protein stuff and therapeutic effects. At the very least you'd think it has effects similar to an ice bath and those are well known for their benefits.

Whenever I man up enough to take one, I feel fucking fantastic for the rest of the day and feel unstoppable.
I can never man up enough to take them though. I'm a fucking pussy bitch.

You do realize your skin isn't a spoon, right?
Warm water helps blood flow and can help reduce Doms.

Now add soap to both spoons and rub it.
Whoops looks like the oil came off anyway.

you don't go max cold. you increase cold gradually

you don't go max cold
How cold then?
I try to end my steamy hot showers by gradually reducing the heat until my shower is nothing but icey cold - as cold as my shower can go. It usually ends up being so fucking cold though that I can barely tough it out for 2 minutes, let alone 5 or more like some people say to shoot for.

shoot for 5, then work your way up to 10. then go colder. you just have to get used to it. it's like training

I find that I've made skin gains since taking cold showers. It also helps control night sweats

You don’t have to have it ice cold to reap benefits, start your shower with neutral/ room temperature water, and as a fun challenge see how cold you can comfortably make it. Even mild or room temp shower is better than hot shower

when u take hot shower ur pores open up n it;s easier to clean dirty skin, but if you go in cold shower after that you close your pores and dirt cant get in after you walk out of shower. also it;s good for itchy skin like psoriasis or eczema. and you feel warm after you walk out of shower because now the environment is warming you up instead of you losing heat after walking out of hot shower. simple calorimetry son

I had a water heater that broke in my first place so took ice cold showers for 4 months at 4:15 a.m. 6x a week. It only pissed me off.

Quitting Veeky Forums would be immensely more beneficial to us than nofap, cold showers, onions, etc. combined.
