Create The Most Bracingly Cold Shower Experience Ever 

Create The Most Bracingly Cold Shower Experience Ever 

I disliked many things about living in Florida, but my main complaint was that I could never quite cool down. For three-quarters of the year, going outside rendered me absolutely useless (because I’m a pale and pasty nerd), and taking a “cooling” shower didn’t help that much, simply because the water never got cold enough.

Eventually, I figured out a system for bypassing water temperature entirely.

To transform yourself from an overheated, sticky mass of anger into a chilled vision of serenity, you will need two things:

1) An exfoliating glove

2) A bottle of Dr Bronner’s peppermint soap. (Accept no substitutes; you want the soap with the crazy ramblings.)

Once you have these things, hop in a shower with the water turned all the way to cold; douse the scrubby glove in peppermint soap, and scrub yourself vigorously.

Sloughing away dead skin while applying a bracing peppermint product to the fresh, newly revealed skin will absolutely chill you, most likely to the point of sprouting goosebumps.

You will emerge from the shower cool and calm – perhaps even cold, which is always preferable to being hot.
