It may sound a bit radical, but the secret of the beautiful face skin could be hiding in the ice treatment. As many experts claim, massaging your face with ice cubes will grant you great skin, and will also alleviate problems such as wrinkles, dark circles and blemishes, and serve as a replacement for expensive cosmetics. Worth a try!
What should be remembered is that the facial skin is soft and thin, therefore the face area should not be treated for more than 15 minutes, as this can lead to varicose veins. If you already have varicose veins on your face, be especially careful and as soon as you feel discomfort, stop the massage.
You should massage your face every day, in the morning and in the evening. In addition we advise that you wear gloves, so that your fingers won’t get frozen. In the absence of gloves, you can wrap an ice cube in a piece of cloth. It is advisable to let the cubes to slightly melt before using them for your massage, therefore you need to let them stay for a while after removing them from the freezer.
If you want a particularly effective massage, instead of water, use a soothing tea or rose water, and you can put slices of strawberries or cucumbers into the ice cube container, because they are good for your skin, or you can even drop a few drops of essential oil with the desired action (for example, tea tree oil timber is acting as an antibiotic).
Here’s how the ice massage helps you:
- For a shiny skin:The cold improves the circulation. For shiny skin you need to apply a gentle massage using circular motions.
- To relieve pimples and acne:The cold also reduces the redness. Just press on the inflamed area for a few moments. Repeat this procedure every other day.
- Anti-Shadow:For this massage you will need a frozen combination of rose water and cucumber cubes. This massage will reduce all the swelling and repair the micro circulation.
