I didn’t realize the power of a simple ice cube until I discovered skin icing. I knew ice cubes were great for keeping drinks cold and reducing swelling, but I was skeptical about rubbing one on m face.
Beauty Tips to Remember:
- Always use cold therapy on a clean face.
- Wear gloves to hold ice cubes. This will protect your hands, especially if you’re planning to give yourself a long relaxing facial.
- The delicate capillary under your skin can break if you use ice cubes directly ,so don’t use ice directly without covering it with a clean soft cloth or a plastic bag when you massage your face.
- To avoid skin burns, never apply ice packs to your body for more than 1 hour. Instead apply intervals of 5 minutes
- Be careful not to use more than two ice cubes. Using too many cubes causes skin problems that make the situation even worse.
(As a quick warning, I don’t recommend applying ice straight from the freezer to bare skin because it can break your capillaries. Let the ice start to melt first. If you already have capillary issues, skin icing might not be a good idea. If you do try it, always cover the cube and don’t do it for more than five minutes at a time.)
