Okay so I red about the 30-day-cold-shower-challenge and I'm one of the persons who jsut can't pass reading things like these without feeling challenged, so this morning I went under a 100%-cold-water-shower. I was in like, 5 seconds, out, felt... (more)
Everytime i use my shower it dries me out really bad, im thinking of getting a filter installed, the water literally stinks of chemicals In the meantime im thinking of just using a wet cloth (with spring water) to clean the smelly bits,... (more)
I'm currently using a generic essence of beauty bath sponge/scrubbie made of nylon mesh and I want something more natural but softer - not an exfoliating type. I'm trying to avoid plastics and fake materials so if you have any suggestions, I... (more)
I gently use a plain white cotton cloth about twice a week. The rest of the time I just use my bare wet hands. Probably not a popular method, but it works well for me. Less is more, I suppose.
Been training pretty hard lately (muay Thai kickboxing). I don't get much DOMS but I do get plenty of shin splints & slight bone bruises. Usually on my knuckles, knee, forearm, & elbows. I do mobility, foam rolls & stretch before &... (more)
I can see the appeal of no 'poo and no soap (except for the prime areas). For those who practice and espouse this lifestyle, do you think the drying off process with a towel becomes much more important for the minor exfoliation it provides? Or do... (more)
Out in the country, when one gets dirty often, it makes sense to shower before sleeping. In the city, when one isn't as dirty per say, it's easier to take a shower after waking up. I know this is different for everyone. Is one better than the... (more)
Ive been a swimmer all of my life and never had any skin problems as a result of swimming. Over the last few months though, every time I get out of a pool or shower, my arms and legs itch uncontrollably. I've looked it up and it is called... (more)
What do no-shampoo folks do after swimming in a chlorine-laden lap pool? Just rinsing with water doesn't seem to do the trick in my hair - but battling back the chlorine with the chemicals in my shampoo seems like a poor option as well. I love... (more)
I swam in college. The girls on the team used to do this: Get your hair wet with regular water in the shower, and then put a cap on before you get in. I don't know how it works but apparently it does
I know that some paleo folks - the best known probably being Richard Nikoley - enjoy a cold shower or cold bath as part of their routine, and some folks will testify to cold water's effects on metabolism. That said, I cherish my hot baths and... (more)
I understand that the skin makes vitamin D from sun exposure in the skin oils, and then it takes some time to absorb that vitamin D through the skin. So, how long should we wait after being in the sun to shower so as to avoid washing off the... (more)
Everyone's skin is different. If you have dry skin, you need to use your hands in order to preserve what little oils are present. Obviously, oily skin will require a harsher touch.
hey there,m skin has gotten super sensitive over the last couple years and it gets worse the worser I eat. At the moment, it's red, itchy, burns and hurts. I put on some coconut oil but it only got worser. What can I do? What can I try so it won't... (more)
My friend is having her second Paleobabby! We are very excited, but the issue she is having is that most of her friends and family, who are kind and loving people, are sort of forcing a traditional babby shower on her. My friend would like her... (more)
Currently, there is a thread on regarding alternative shaving creams, and a few of the answers are recommending cold-water shaving. Browsing the oft linked to Art Of Manliness website, I read this article on brief cold showers and I wondered about... (more)
