Can I Have a Cool Shower After A Long Heavy Tiresome Activity?

I never take a shower when I am still having sweat. I usually rest for a little while when there is no sweat. I am also told about this--better not to take a cold shower when you are still sweating. I think that it is scientific.

Hello jatamogue!(",) It would be better if you take a rest first and dry your sweat. After taking enough rest then you can have a cool shower. I just found out that having a cool shower has many benefits for the body such as the following: How it helps the body In an article from http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/showers.html the following benefits of cold water were noted * Brings blood to the capillaries, therefore increasing circulation throughout the body. * Cleans the circulatory system. * Reduces blood pressure on internal organs. * Provides flushing for the organs and provides a new supply of blood. * Strengthens the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. * Contracts the muscles to eliminate toxins and poisonous wastes. * Strengthens the mucous membranes, which help resist hay fever, allergies, colds, coughs. Hope it did help you. Great day!(",)
