Taking care of your skin in hot sunny days is a tough task. The sun is shining bright, and you are prone to sunburns, and breaking out.
Thankfully, ice can provide solutions to a range of skin woes. This wonder product is not only natural but relaxing too.
Here are a few benefits of applying ice cubes on your face:
- Healthy, glowing skin.
During summer, the heat can do a lot of damage to your skin, making it rather dull. To get your radiant skin back, simply massage an ice cube on your face and relax.
Ta da! You will notice a sudden glow on your tired and dull skin! It is no rocket science. The ice constricts the blood vessels and the body starts circulating an increased amount of blood to your face. This improves the blood circulation, thus making your face glow brightly.
- Absorbs makeup better.
This right here is a real smart makeup hack that will help you get the most flawless finish when you apply any product, like your foundation. Before you apply your base, rub an ice cube all over your face. The ice will constrict the blood capillaries and create a certain pulling effect that will make the absorption of your foundation or any other product easier. Simple, right?
There are many exfoliators available in the market that claim to do a fantastic job, but ice is the most natural of all of them, and obviously the easiest one to source and use! To get even better results, instead of using an ice cube, which as mentioned before will make your face glow, you can also use a frozen milk cube because it will very easily absorb the dead skill cells, leaving your skin clean and smooth.
- Soothes acne.
Most of us tend to suffer from breakouts during the summer. This is because increased perspiration increases the secretion of oil which leads to acne. Applying an ice cube over the sensitive areas will not only soothe but also get rid of any bumps or redness and swelling that is caused by acne.
- Get rid of those dark circles.
Late night parties and meetings not only leave us tired inside-out, but they also lead to dark circles around our eyes. Well, ice cubes can be of great help here too! ,
If you wish to completely get rid of those dark shadows under your eyes, then freeze some rose water and fresh cucumber juice and rub a cube of that gently across your dark circles. Repeat this as often as you can as it does not only case the dark circles to fade but is also rather calming.
