Skin Icing Can Reduce Inflammation
The Gangubai Kathiawadi Actress, Alia Bhatt swears by drenching your face in a bowl of ice cold water to reduce inflammation. Many of us suffer from skin redness, rosacea and active acne that can blow out of proportion in this scorching heat. Ice, in general, can help increase blood circulation and soothe inflammation. This DIY skincare hack also promises to combat many other skin-related issues in no time.
One of the most common or talked-about skin problems is enlarged pores. Many of us have large and open pores due to excessive sebum production. These large pores attract oil, dirt, grime and pollution that clogs your pores and dulls your skin’s natural glow. Hence, an ice water face dip can help close up pores, therefore reducing the appearance of them and controlling the production of sebum.
First thing you notice in the morning is your puffy eyes that scream for help. Puffy eyes can be caused by a variety of factors, including dehydration and lack of sleep, as well as stress and allergies, and even an excess salt in your diet. If quick fixes are your thing, look no further than an ice water bowl to poof your puffy eyes.
Dipping your face in a bowl of ice-cold water will not only minimise the appearance of pores but also tighten your saggy skin. This beauty hack is here to stay and slay. Regular use of this ice facial therapy will make your skin soft, supple and firm. It also helps reduce the appearance of ageing signs like wrinkles, crows feet and fine lines. So, go grab a bowl of ice filled with water now.
