    Abruptly turn the water temperature very cold. Try to stand under the water for at least 10 seconds, letting it flow over your head. This will prepare you for the pending bathroom air that will engulf your body once you step out of the shower. Some people really enjoy this method, while others rather despise it; find what works for you.
