I honestly enjoy a warm bath year-round, even during the summer. I can't stand taking cold baths because I feel like my skin is getting shocked every time the cold water hits it. Plus, warm baths are much more relaxing. I always feel very cold in the winter. I don't udnerstand how your roomates can take cold baths during the winter. It doesn't make sense to me. But, to each his own.

Actually there are a lot people in my place take cold bath or shower in winter,they told me that make them more comfortable than warm bath but I cant realize where the comfort is.But if you take cold bath year-round that do benefit you health,reduce the chance of catching a cold and so on.Also,some people like winter swimming maybe for the same reason.

Well I take either a hot shower or hot bath in the winter time, it would be crazy to take a cold bath during the winter. That would be one good way to get you sick if you took a cold bath during the winter. Now during the summer of course I'll take a cold shower or cold bath.

you know what cold bath actually do good to your health,but most people can not bear that.Several years ago a Chinese swam in icy water for about 1 hour in Canada,winter swimming can make you stronger so as the cold bath.

Well I have never taken a cold bath but I have had a cold shower in the middle of the summer when it is so hot i feel like i can't breath and i just need to cool off, only to step out of the shower and to be instantly hot again. Overall I love hot showers, I make the water so hot when i get out my skin is red..lol

i prefer temp of water depending on the season .. cold for hot climates and hot for chilly winters .. its very natural .. its dumb to bathe with hot water in scorchy hot summers .. while i have heard many pple do bathe with cold water in winters as they feel less chilly that way .. strange as i find it .. but is true for many pple ..

Perhaps I'm something of an anomaly, but I love a cold bath. Not only is it invigorating, but it makes my skin feel so good. Perhaps it has something to do with shrinking.

I do not take Cold Bath during winter. It is strictly prohibited for me as it would only give rise to the problems like throat inflammation and tonsils. Instead of that I prefer hot bath during winter and cold bath during summer, and it is so very common for the people of India, I suppose. Your room-mates who take cold bath round the year must have special guts. Hats off to them.
