Got insomnia? Get into a warm/hot shower
Having trouble sleeping? Taking a warm shower or bath at night not only relaxes your body, but also adjusts your body temperature. When you come out of a warm shower into a cooler bedroom, your body temperature, heart rate and breathing drops, signalling your body that it's time to rest.
Don’t aggravate acne with hot showers!
While hot showers help to unblock pores, it’s worth noting that it could aggravate acne problems. Acne happens when there is too much sebum (oil) on the skin. Although a hot shower removes sebum, the removal also triggers the body to produce more sebum after the shower. If you suffer from acne, it is advisable to take cold showers to help sebum control and prevent new breakouts.
Relief cramps with a warm shower
While there is nothing harmful about taking cold showers when menstruating, a warm shower is better in helping the muscles to relax, thereby alleviating cramps – just like how a hot water bottle helps.
