Date: March 25, 2024 | epnwd

Since time immemorial, we’ve been advised to include ice cubes in the skincare routine. From mainstream magazines to movies and now social media influencers and skin experts, everyone readily agrees how ice cubes benefit the skin by reducing the damaging effects of sun exposure, stress, sleeplessness, and pollution. This advice has peaked in the modern-day popular surgery – cool sculpting. Nevertheless, many are still not aware of the extent of the benefits of rubbing ice on their face. This blog is here to let them all delve into the surprising benefits of ice cubes on the face. So let’s take a look at them: 

The Top 3 Benefits of Rubbing Ice on the Face

Let’s dive straight into the heart of the matter: the incredible advantages of using ice on the face can best upon your skin:

Reduced Inflammation and Redness

When the raging sun is wreaking havoc on your skin and it’s crying for help, the resolution comes in the form of applying ice on your face. It cools down the red, inflamed skin caused by the environmental aggressors or acne, and soothes the skin to protect from those pesky pimples. 

Minimise Appearance of Pores

As ice calms down the skin, the visibly large facial pores that squirm us every time we check them out on mirrors, also shrink. The smaller the pores, the smoother the skin! Regular application of ice on the face also refines the skin texture and makes us admire ourselves. So oily skin folks must follow an ‘ice on face’ routine during the summer days to tighten the pores and enjoy fresh, matte skin.

Less Acne and Bright Complexion

Regular application of ice to your face can also enhance blood and oxygen circulation throughout the skin which promotes a healthy, rosy glow. As the cold temperature stimulates blood flow to the skin’s surface, and sebum production also reduces, your bright, acne-free skin radiates with vitality.

How to Apply Ice on the Face?

Now that we’ve uncovered the ice cube benefits for your face, let’s talk about the best way to include it into your skincare routine:

Step 1: start with a clean canvas to let the ice work the best on the skin. Thoroughly clean the face using a gentle facial cleanser such as Sadhev Ayurvedic Facial Cleanser Sensitive Skin to prep the skin for ice cube application. 

Step 2: Now wrap a few ice cubes in a clean cloth or paper towel to prevent direct contact between the skin surface and the ice cubes to retain the skin’s natural oils. Gently glide the cubes across your face in circular motions and focus on areas prone to inflammation or excess oil, such as the forehead, nose, and chin. Continue the process for 5 to 10 minutes.

Step 3: As ice cubes improve the skin’s ability to absorb products, moisturise the skin using a lightweight moisturiser to let the skin enjoy its full potential and protect the skin from drying out. Choose between Sadhev Ayurvedic Hydrating Day Cream or Sadhev Ayurvedic Rejuvenating Night Cream as per the time of your ice cube application. 

Creative Ways To Use Ice Cubes on Your Skin

You can increase the effectiveness of ice cubes by following the below-mentioned tips:

Aloe Vera and Saffron Gel Cube

Simplify your skincare routine by freezing aloe vera gel for your face to blend the benefits of ice cubes on your face with the advantages of aloe vera gel. When these two combine, you get a solution to depuff your face, diminish signs of ageing and eliminate dark circles. 

Ice Water Facial

Fill a glass bowl with water and put a few ice cubes in it. Now dunk your face in the bowl quite a few times and soak in the benefits of icy cold water. Follow the routine a few times a week and get a rosy complexion.
