My ideal shower situation looks a little something like this: I connect my phone to my INSMY Bluetooth shower speaker (it’s the best $24 I’ve spent all year—you need one), I pop a lavender scented vapor tablet into the shower (they’re from CVS and cost just $5 for three tablets) and I set the water temperature to hot but not too hot. The room does get a little steamy, but not too steamy—I don’t enjoy the skin-burning showers that many other folks do, but you do you. But then, I heard about contrast showers, which, basically, are showers in which you switch between hot and cold water a couple times. The supposed benefits are a strengthened immune system, an immediate boost in energy and more. So obviously, I had to try. Read on for my experience with contrast showers, plus everything you need to know about the potential health benefits.
