Benefits of Ice for Your Skin

Ice benefits your skin in many ways.

** Ice refreshes and rejuvenates your skin by boosting blood circulation.

** Icing your skin helps to shrink the pores on your face and gives a smoother appearance. Before applying makeup, apply ice cubes on your face for about ten minutes. Pat dry and then apply makeup for a smoother appearance.

** Ice helps to smooth out wrinkles and delays the appearance of wrinkles on your skin.

** Ice helps to ease acne skin by soothing inflamed skin and by reducing swelling.

** Applying ice to tired, puffy eyes helps to rejuvenate your eyes and reduces dark circles.

Instead of plain ice, you can freeze cucumber juice. Use these cubes to reduce the appearance of dark circles under your eyes.

You can also add ingredients such as green tea, rose water, lemon juice that are good for your skin to the water and then freeze it for additional benefits for your skin.

Do not apply plain ice directly to inflamed or injured skin. Wrap an ice cube in a soft towel and then apply it onto inflamed skin to prevent breakage of blood capillaries.
