It sounds weird – and maybe a little uncomfortable – but ice just might be the missing element from your natural skincare routine. Hear us out. Ice has been a DIY beauty hack throughout the ages and is often even used in spa treatments (sauna, ice, steam, ice – you know the drill). But using ice on the face is back in vogue. The below five benefits are why we think you should give an at home ice facial a go.
Ice fights excess sebum and debris by unclogging and shrinking large pores, leaving skin looking visibly tighter and smoother. With this improved texture, skin primed and ready for a more fuss-free application of your foundation.
De-puff the Eye Area
Do you see swelling or puffiness around your eyes in the morning? Run an ice cube around the eye area. The temperature will help calm the area and reduce the appearance of under-eye bags. (Plus, you’ll definitely be awake after this!)
Improve Blood Circulation
Running ice cubes on your face constricts blood vessels, sending an increased blood flow to the inflamed areas that require healing.
Ease Redness and Blemishes
Find your complexion to be a little rosier than usual? Ice cubes considerably reduce the size, swelling and redness of pimples by soothing the irritated skin. As a bonus, you’ll your skin tone evening out as well.
Improve the Appearance of Skin Texture
By smoothing the complexion, ice cubes work as a preventative measure and drastically improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
So now you know why we are refilling our ice cube trays on the double these days. Adding a little ice into your morning skincare routine is easy, affordable and, most importantly, effective.
