Primp Tip: Get Iced

Primp Tip: Get Iced
These hot days of summer might be coming to an end, but I recently read about a pretty cool beauty tip that I wanted to share with you... The idea is to give yourself an “ice cube facial massage.” 

It may not sound that particularly pleasant, but running an ice cube over your face has a lot of benefits for your skin. Besides giving your face a dewy, glowing look, the frosty cubes will help to smooth your complexion by combating fat cells, ease wrinkles, fight acne, and promote blood circulation that will help heal blemishes. 

By simply massaging your face with ice cubes for a minute or two before bed, you will essentially be giving yourself a mini facial. (Just be sure to wrap the cubes in a paper towel, or a baggie, because applying them directly to your skin can cause delicate blood vessels to break.) For an added “ahh” to this spa-inspired treatment, try freezing your cubes with watermelon, lemon, or rose. Getting iced never sounded so good.
