What is icing the skin?
The simplest way to “ice” your skin is to use an ice cube to get rid of redness under your eyes or on your face. It has been a standard piece of beauty advice for a long time. This advice has been around for a long time, but it is not just an old wives’ story.
When real ice is put on the skin, it brings blood to the surface (like when you go for a brisk winter walk and get a rosy glow), which calms and strengthens the skin. Skin icing is a cryotherapy treatment that uses vaporized nitrogen to cool the skin on the face, head, and neck. This is also called an “ice facial.”
Benefits of Icing Skin
Ice has been used for a long time to make skin look clear and healthy. As was already said, the method has many benefits for our face skin. It’s not a full-fledged anti-aging method, but if you look at before-and-after pictures of skin icing online, you’ll see that it can tighten the skin pretty well. Here are some of the things it can do:
– Fights wrinkles
– Reduces blemishes and acne
– Facilitates blood circulation in the face
– Refreshes the skin
– Reduces enlarged pores
These are just some of the great things about this method. It has been used for a long time, but the beauty business is just now realising how good it is for your skin. Below, we’ll look at some of the best reasons to ice your skin when you do it right.
When you put the ice cubes on your face, they help improve blood flow, which gives your skin a healthy glow. Use iced fruit cubes to give the face a brighter glow.
Dark Circle Treatment
When rose water and cucumber juice are frozen together, they can be used to treat dark circles under the eyes. This mix will make you look better by making your face less puffy.
Redness and swelling caused by acne and pimples can be soothed by ice cubes. You can put them on the hurt area directly for a few seconds until it feels numb. This is something you can do every other night.
Ice cubes are a cheap way to smooth or tone your face. Before putting on makeup, you can use this method. It will make your pores smaller and leave your makeup smooth and without any flaws.
Skin icing makes wrinkles look less noticeable, just like the well-known Tanaka face massage. This method will also help slow down the signs of getting older.
If you don’t have time to put on makeup, put ice cubes on your face and cover them with a cloth. This will give you a fresh, glowing look without any makeup. You will look more like yourself.
How to Ice Your Skin?
You don’t need a cloth wrap to ice your skin, but you should wear gloves so you can hold the ice properly. Put the ice on your skin with a cloth wrap or towel. This will have the same effect as putting ice on your face directly.
Extreme cold can easily break the veins under the skin, so if you want to use a bare ice cube, don’t take it straight from the freezer.
Stop the process if the cold from the ice cube gets too painful. Don’t ice the same spot for more than 15 minutes. Don’t use bare ice cubes on skin that already has broken capillaries, or don’t use the ice for a long time.
Depending on your skin type, you can put cucumber, lemon, rose water, green tea, chamomile tea, and other safe items in the water for the ice cubes.
