People with cardiovascular disease: Cold showers may lead to increased blood pressure, vasoconstriction and increased heart rate, increasing the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular accidents. These people should avoid cold showers and choose water of appropriate temperature for bathing.

People with low body temperature: Some people have low body temperature and taking cold baths may lead to hypothermia, which in turn may cause symptoms related to hypothermia, such as chills and physical exhaustion. These people should choose to bathe in moderately warm water to keep their body temperature balanced.

Not only that but there are also some situations in which you should not take a cold shower. If you take a cold shower immediately after strenuous exercise, your blood vessels will contract rapidly, resulting in higher blood pressure, increased heart load and increased risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular accidents. To protect the health of the heart and blood vessels, you should relax for some time after exercise and wait for your body to gradually return to normal before taking a bath.

Cold showers may have benefits for healthy people, such as improving the nervous system, enhancing cardiovascular function, and increasing disease resistance. However, cold baths may be potentially risky for people with colds, cardiovascular disease and hypothermia. Therefore, an individual's physical condition and comfort should be prioritized when choosing a bathing method.

Lastly, we recommend consulting a doctor or professional before taking a cold shower to find out if you are physically fit to take a cold shower. Regardless of whether you choose to take a cold shower or a warm bath, maintaining moderation and comfort is the most important thing to ensure your health and comfort.
