Ice cubes are a great way to keep yourself cool during the hot summer months, but did you know that you can also incorporate them into your beauty routine? Here are a few great ways to start using ice cubes in your summer beauty routine…
1. De-puff eyes
Ice is a great way to reduce swelling around the eye area. Wrap an ice cube in a paper towel and lightly glide the ice over your eyes for a few minutes. I also use this trick to help clear up any redness in my eyes. You may want to wear a glove when applying the ice to your skin—it will become uncomfortable to hold the ice with your bare hands for too long.
2. Perk up tired skin
Ice is believed to improve circulation in the skin. The body responds by gradually by sending an increased flow of warm blood to the area. Be careful that you’re not applying ice taken straight from the freezer—extreme cold applied straight away can actually harm your skin. Place the ice in a glass for a couple of minutes and then take to your skin. Also be careful not to apply the ice to any broken capillaries on the skin.
