  • Have cold showers.

    That's what I sometimes do in winters, once your body adapts to the freezing temperature of the water, you feel nothing really.

    Then when you get out of the shower, the air that's consisted of a higher room temperature will just warm you up because your skin is at a lower temperature, thus the warmth afterwards.

    Or

    You can dry yourself in the shower and have clothes right by you to change into and have the room connected to the bathroom heated so you can quickly move into the warmth.

  • I close the bathroom door while I'm taking a shower so the steam stays in the room and the room itself stays heated, therefore, after I get out of the shower I'm still warm, and I make sure to have my clothes in there to dress as soon as I'm dried, and only then do I open the door to the room and step out. Trick I learned living in some---VERY---cold places over the years.

      Leaving the bathroom in clothes that have been soaked by the steam trapped in the bathroom can be very chilly. And the condensation is bad for the walls, etc. in the bathroom.

      The vent removes air from the room. The air has the steam in it. That creates a negative pressure which sucks in air around the door. If it could not do that you would have created a vacuum. And that air is the cooler air from outside the bathroom.

      @Red_Arrow : The method I described works. Anyone reading this should just try it as it does keep you warm and it doesn't wet your clothes or destroy your damage your walls.

      I've now muted this question as I'm done with this debate. Everyone just try it and you'll see it works to keep you warm.

      End of line...

  • Shower in hot water and let the steam build up in the bathroom. Steam warms up the bathroom quite a bit. Make sure you have a nice, thick, fluffy towel to step into or even better, a towel robe. If you have a robe you an immediately put that on and it's designed to absorb moisture anyway.

  • I live in my own place so what I do is crank up the heat before I get in the shower. That helps take the edge off the "Fuck it's cold!" feeling when you first step out of the shower when you're done. Then once I'm dry and have clothes on I turn the heat back down. But I know exactly the feeling you're talking about.

  • get a space heater.

    turn this baby on a minute before your shower or so and by the time you get out the bathroom will be nice and toasty.
    I had this in college I used it to heat my room because I was too broke to turn on the big heater lol.

  • This is a male opinion, but if you want a serious, long term solution, you may consider investing in a larger water heater. Perhaps a 75 or even 100 gallon. You will have a virtually endless stream of hot water while in the shower so that you can take as long as you like without getting cold.

    You could also close the bathroom door so the steam stays in and it's not so cold when you get out. It gives you more time to put on some clothes.

      i hate putting on clothes when my body is wet though... I need to dry off, put on lotion and then clothes lol

    • 11d

      You should by a robe so it can dry you up while it keeps you warm. You can also put lotion on.

  • Hang your towel over the radiator before you shower and dry yourself inside the shower cabin. Keep the window closed if you have a ventilation system in your bathroom (you can always open the window once you have your clothes on).

  • I'm not cold after I step out the shower because the water is so hot and the barhroom gets all steamy and warmed up. Of I dry off and put on my clothes in the bathroom then I'll be good. But if I walk out the bathroom before I get dressed, then I'll be freezing.

  • I bath/shower with steam or I go to a spa once in a while. The steam makes me feel warm when I get out, so I have no problems. The hot temperature the steam gives is really convenient in the cold seasons. Try to invest in one of these

    True, it costs an arm and a leg, but it's a good investment.

      You could also bring a heater with you and switch it on once you start getting dressed.

      For your legs, always exfoliate your body with a mitt before shaving, it'll help warm up your skin. Exfoliate against the growth of the hair, it will help you get a smoother shave. I also recommend adding oil to your shaving cream, so there more added moisture barrier between your skin and the razor blades. Use hot water because it opens up your pores, which is good for shaving, that's why it's better to do it at the end, the steam helps as well. Use a razor with that has at least 4 blades, ignore the cheap razors. Be very gentle when shaving, and rinse your razor after every stroke to not clog it.

  • It's usually the shower that warms me up lol. I shower to clean AND when I feel cold. On what planet do you live?

  • Wrap myself in towel, plus my rope till I warm up again then pretty much dry. Apply lotion and dress up.
    Or put blanket in drying. Go under warm blanket when cime out of shower.
    My ex used to warm up my towel then wrap me up whenni come out from shower.
    I tell my boyfriend go put towel or blanket I dryer. He loves the idea, then we bith go under warm blanket to cuddle. Of course he gets over heated lol.
