I am saying…. YES! Last week while in the shower I remembered my experiences with the Swedish models while living in Europe. They always had the most amazing skin. Every single one that I spoke to said they finished off a hot shower or bath with an icy cold plunge or a freezing shower. I started ending each shower with frozen water pelting my body…. YIKES! But here was the fun part…. My skin actually started looking smother and more toned. As with life… I forgot my old model secret until last week. Two days after ending my showers with 5 minutes of freezing water bombarding my skin,  I noticed toner arms and legs. Call me crazy…. But it works!
Sooooooo here’s the experiment…. After every bath or shower for the next week, freeze yourself toned! Turn off the hot… and let the freezing water blast your arms, legs and abdomen for 4 to 10 minutes. It will invigorate your senses…. and you may just end up with smoother and younger looking skin. Here are a few other benefits to the cold plunge challenge……

  • Enhance immunity against infections, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, gout, rheumatic diseases, depression, and more
