Women began to use ice cubes for face in ancient times and this method preserved till nowadays to maintain youthful skin.
We need the process of washing face with ice cubes to impart the skin elasticity and freshness, as well as it’s a healthy lifestyle to provide long-term prevention for wrinkles. When we cleanse the skin with olive oil or when we use honey as a facial cleaner we would like to remove the dirt from the skin and open the pores.
Ice benefits for face skin
Washing with ice cubes accomplishes another income. We narrow pores conversely and keep skin in good shape. Not only pure frozen water is acceptable. For example, frozen chamomile decoction helps to remove pimples.
I wash my face in the morning many years and I am very pleased with the state of my skin.
However, this procedure is not for everyone. There is no need to wash the face by ice if you have very sensitive skin or blood vessels close to the surface, or if you have irritation after cold washing. You have to choose the best acceptable condition for your skin.
Skin should have a nice healthy tone, like blush as if you have returned from a walk. You will enjoy the process.
You can freeze plain or sparkling water or add a few drops of lemon juice. I prefer to brew herbs (chamomile, calendula) and freeze it after.
