While we’re on the search for flawless, youthful skin, this trendy facial was right at the top of our to-do list. Women have been using ice cubes for centuries to reduce lines and wrinkles, and to keep skin looking soft and smooth. If you’ve ever wanted to try this for yourself at home, here is all the information you need.
Benefits for your skin
Running an ice cold cube of water of your face helps to clean the surface and renew cells at a much faster rate. Although this treatment is certainly not for everyone – people who suffer from sensitive skin or very prominent blood vessels should definitely not volunteer themselves. However acne-prone skin can benefit from the ice cube facial, especially if you choose to freeze chamomile which will help to decrease the severity of spots and pimples on the skin.
After the treatment, your skin should have a nice rosy glow – especially on the cheeks, chin and forehead. The cold sensation will settle down after a few minutes, and skin will feel fresh and rejuvenated.
How to make your own ice cube facial
This facial is specifically designed for people suffering from problematic acne-prone skin, so chamomile is used to relax those angry blemishes.
