Ice Cube Serums For When Your Skin Needs To Chill
There’s a new-age skin care fad that will cost you $0.. but you’ll probably need to sacrifice your precious skincare products to Queen Elsa.
Yep, skincare enthusiasts are freezing their skincare products into ice cubes now, and brands have even stepped up to create ice cube versions of their product. Anna Semonin Express Radiance Ice Cubes are basically jam packets full of serum that you put in the freezer until they become frozen.
As it melts when you rub it all over your face, all the goodness from the serum gets infused into your skin, along with the benefits that come with rubbing an ice cube on your face (de-puffing, firming and relaxation).
Rubbing ice cubes on your face can actually soothe pimples, inflammation and increases blood circulation to your skin. Coupled with powerful ingredients in serums like hyaluronic acid, snail mucin and aloe extract, ice cube serums could be the key to glowing skin, and good mental health to boot.
Can you make your own ice cube serums without sacrificing your skincare products?
Well, of course, you can. We’re always on Team DIY. The most obvious choice would be infusing your ice cubes with mixture green tea and a few drops essential oils, like rosehip oil. Green tea gives you an antioxidant-rich facial and rosehip oil moisturises your skin. When frozen, this ice cube serum will also heal inflamed skin and soothe acne.
Meanwhile, if you’re looking to firm up your skin, frozen whole milk would be good to help regenerate skin cells. Whole milk contains Vitamin A and lactic acid, which helps to exfoliate your skin from the inside out. Instead of getting a jade roller, try this technique out. Rub a frozen milk cube from the centre of your chin up to your cheekbones and along your forehead. Repeat until the cube melts to get a sculpted effect.
