This time of year, plenty of us who live in cold climates are eagerly awaiting spring’s arrival. We’ve had enough of winter, snow, and freezing temperatures and long for those warm summer nights by the lake.

However, one woman from Ukraine, named Inna Vladimirskaya, never wants winter to end! She says the freezing water temperatures throughout the winter actually hold a very significant beauty secret!

Vladimirskaya swears by swimming naked through freezing cold waters and claims that it has kept her feeling and looking young. Whether it was the water or not, she certainly does have a good figure and positive outlook!

She has been running and flocking through the frigid waters every weekend for the past nine years! Vladimirskaya, whose actual age is 32, looks like she could be in her mid-twenties and claims there is a scientific reason for her practice.

This is something that many Russians actually do. Don’t believe me? Check out the video below:

“Immersion in cold water makes the blood rush to the internal organs, activating their circulation, which helps break down fat and improve muscle tone,” she says. “The walrus looks much younger than its actual age because it spends so much time in cold water.”
