The cold stone, thought to be an indispensable “accessory” for summer drinks, turns out to have a miraculous skincare effect that can help tighten pores and tighten the face.
1. Massage ice after using cosmetics
After applying the serum, you can wrap a cold stone in a handkerchief to massage the skin. At this point, the skin will have a “shrinking” reflex that will make the serum penetrate deeper. This method can also be applied after masking, increasing the skincare effectiveness of conventional products by many times. Therefore, you can skip using lotion without fear of serum or essence evaporating from the skin, reducing the sticky or hot feeling of summer.
2. Use ice to slim your face
Stone massage to thin chin area is a lot of girls use. Instead of regular ice, use fresh milk in an ice cube tray, as the milk contains lactic acid and vitamins that help stimulate skin cell renewal.
You can hold two ice cubes simultaneously, massage from the center of chin to up to both ears. Performing regularly 5 minutes a day will help increase the effect of toning the facial muscles, thereby reducing sagging face, becoming slimmer and more youthful. You can also massage stones on the forehead area to create a smooth, radiant skin effect.
3. Treating acne with ice
The low temperature will help to soothe inflamed blisters, making them less red and faster healing. To speed up the acne process, you can use a dissolved aspirin tablet in hot water, then freeze the mixture. Thanks to its acetylsalicylic acid content, the aspirin cold stone will help acne spots quickly dry out and reduce scarring.
4. Apply ice to the swollen area
A lot of people are familiar with how to use ice to apply swelling under the eyes to dissolve quickly, but there is an even faster way. Use coffee to pour into the ice tray, then take these coffee ice cubes to apply on the eyes. Caffeine content plus cold temperatures will make the swelling disappear while stimulating blood circulation to eliminate tired bruises.
