Prep Dish founder and wellness enthusiast Allison Schaaf shares the benefits of dipping your face in ice water and taking cold showers.
In episode 184, Prep Dish founder and meal prep expert, Allison Schaaf, continues this summer miniseries on ice with a focus on two things she’s loving this summer.
1. Ice Dunks
I’m loving dunking my face in a big bowl of ice water both in the morning and at night every day. It’s supposed to help with inflammation and puffiness but it also just feels amazing when it’s hot outside!
2. Cold Showers
I’ve been taking a cold shower every day. I’ve tried it in the past but because it’s so hot in Texas right now, this actually feels amazing. I just jump into the shower right when it turns on instead of letting the water warm up first. This works out to about a minute and a half of cold water.
I love doing this in the morning after my morning walk. I feel like it prepares my brain to do hard things the rest of the day.
