Get Rid of the Puffy

Increased circulation can also be a boost to your under-eye area. One ice cube can not only help diminish puffiness there but can also help deal with under-eye circles on a temporary basis. The delicate nature of the under-eye skin means that ice cubes should only be used for a short period of time though and not be left on for more than one minute at a time. Infusions of cucumber, milk, or green tea into the ice cube can be even more beneficial.

 

Skin Exfoliation

To get a cheap facial, try making ice cubes out of milk – the lactic acid in the milk will exfoliate your skin and the ice coldness will rejuvenate your skin. Using an ice cube to rub across your face until it melts is a great way to help your skin be a better version of itself. To exfoliate, you can also use cucumbers or blueberries – or combine more than one ingredient for even more exfoliating power.

 

Delay The Appearance of Wrinkles

Wrinkles seem to be inevitable, but you can definitely delay their onset by keeping your skin well hydrated. Hydration is one of the key ingredients for keeping skin looking young, along with collagen, and using an ice cube as a quick face lift and moisture booster. Rubbing an ice cube across your face on a regular basis will help to keep the wrinkles at bay.

 

Cheap and Natural Primer

Ice helps to minimize the pores on your face which means that you can use a piece of ice on your face as a natural primer. The minimal pores on your face will help create a smoother surface on your face which will make your makeup go on smooth just as it would with a primer. Rubbing a piece of ice on your face before putting on makeup will be just what you need to quickly and cheaply make your face smooth.

 

Clear The Oil

Oily skin is no one’s best friend – and we do all we can to get rid of it. Ice cubes can help to reduce the oil secretion happening on your skin and keep your skin from releasing a lot of oil. Less oil on your face means that your face will be more healthy and stay in better shape, prepared for makeup or the day ahead. You can also add mint to your ice cubes to create an even more cooling effect.
