YOU’VE been told over and over again about the benefits that water has when it comes to beauty; well, it’s time to tell you again, only this time we’re talking ice. Yes, ice. Icing works for all skin types and we definitely recommend trying it out.
Just what are these pros, though? For a start, icing promotes better circulation, which we can all do with: less blood goes to the surface of the skin, reducing inflammation and swelling.
Icing also assists in unclogging pores and induces tightness, leaving you with smoother and healthy looking skin; it also reduces dark circles and puffiness around the eyes.
And perhaps most important, it’s superb for those fine lines and wrinkles, because of its anti-inflammatory benefits. Just rub an ice cube underneath the eye area and on the forehead for two minutes each morning before applying make-up, and you’ll soon notice a difference. (N)ice!
