Lucy Redman, expert at The Ice Co., shared several ways to use ice in your beauty and skincare routine.
Reduce eye bags
Ice is known to reduce swelling and puffiness. So why not roll an ice cube under your eyes every day?
“Rolling an ice cube under your eyes can help reduce dark circles and puffiness. It’s the perfect base before applying makeup,” explains Lucy.
Seal nail polish
A lesser-known tip when it comes to ice is using it to seal nail polish.
“Have you painted your nails and want them to dry quickly? The ice water dries and seals the nail polish in no time,” says Lucy, adding, “Fill a bowl with cold water and add ice, then dip your fingers in it for 30 seconds, maintaining pressure. Your paint should be dry and sealed!”
If you want your skin to look more awake and radiant, Lucy recommends an ice facial.
“To soothe the skin and reduce fatigue by stimulating blood circulation to the face and improving the complexion, fill a bowl with cold water and ice cubes, dip your face in it and hold it there for a few seconds after cleansing “, she explains. Repeat the process several times and don’t forget to moisturize afterwards!
According to the expert, the ice facial has been “tested by many celebrities,” including Selling Sunset’s Bella Hadid and Amanza Smith.
A quick solution
If you’re short on time, simply rolling an ice cube over your face can also be effective.
“If you don’t have time for a full facial, take an ice cube and run it over your face after cleansing,” suggests Lucy. This helps reduce puffiness, tighten pores and reduce redness, providing a smoother, more even complexion.”
