    I know, I know, if you never took a cold shower you will not relate to this...but for all of you that have it really is amazing. For me it has been the fountain of youth. When I try to explain to people, itยดs usually that glazed look over their eyes, that look that I refuse...

    Cold Shower After Sitting In Sauna

    I've always liked cold showers, but when I was in Sweden, I was introduced to having a cold shower after spending time in a Sauna, then returning to the Sauna for a while and then out for another cold shower. It was amazing.

    It All Started Last December...

    I was on Vacation in Barbados, which is alwaaaays warm/hot. We would usually go to the beach and lay out in the hot hot carribean sun, or hike up a mountain/huge hill, so by the time I took a shower I'd want it to be COLD. You see, I have very sensitive skin- it hates hot water...
