Ice Cubes for your face

© 2009 - 2014 www.perfectskincareforyou.com

Ice Cubes are one of the quickest ways to restore your face to a fresh and dewy look. So, in case you are ever in a hurry, make sure to just rub your face for a minute or two with ice cubes and you are ready to go!! Another added advantage is that ice cubes constrict your pores making your face look smoother.

They can be a great relief during the bad breakouts and particularly soothing for acne and inflammatory skin. A nice touch for using ice cubes would be to freeze your favorite fruit and vegetable juices into ice cubes. That would provide your skin with immediate anti-oxidants and the various benefits which come from topical application of the particular fruits.

The essentials would be orange juice which is useful for bright face and apple juice which is great for oily skin. You can also go for pomegranates as they are especially high in anti-oxidants and would provide a rosy complexion.

Caution: Applying ice cubes straight to your skin can cause delicate capillaries under your skin to break so wrap the ice cubes in a wash cloth and then apply them to your skin.

    1. well, since its frozen, I am assuming that the benefits should be same. I am not sure though.

  4. Lemon juice z nt perfct fr senstve skinz. Itz burnz

    Replies
    1. since its froze, it wouldn't burn. but, yes, otherwise, there are other fruit juices as well which can be used :)

      Delete
    2. sorry for not being clear! i meant use other fruit juices like watermelon which is not so sensitive on skin. in fact its quite soothing!

      Delete
    3. Lemon juice does burn the first 2-3 times you use it! But it should stop after your adjusts to it! If your skin is sensitive you can dilute and still received the benefits of it! Its good for acne & scars as well!

      Delete
    4. This is why you shouldn't believe everything you read on the internet. This person, although is correct in some stuff, doesn't know what they are talking about in others. Not because it is frozen, means that the acidic properties disappear. If anything, based on what you are saying, the juice simply wouldnt work at all because it would be completely frozen. It's not like you can be like "hey, lemon juice, only work for blemishes but dont burn my skin." Every type of skin reacts differently, an lemon juice is definitely not good for sensitive skin. Also keep in mind that the use of lemon juice should only be done at night and sunblock is a must after using lemon juice. Diluting is a must so the acidic properties don't go harshly on the skin. Anyone who reads this article, research well what the fruit you are using does to your skin.

  5. what kind of wash cloth should be used...??
    not for this only but for other purposes also.
    either towel type or some other....!!!

    Replies
    1. a clean cotton hanky will do

      Delete
    2. yes, that is also an alternative!

      Delete
    3. And how are you planning to use both the cloth and the juices? If the juice is frozen and u use it through a cloth you can't get ANY benefit whatsoever from the juice as all vitamins and substances would go in the cloth and not on your face...

      Delete
    4. yes but the cloth used should be very thin and the juice/liquid does get applied to the skin so its kinda fine to use it that way :)

  6. I moved to Florida recently and my skin had been terribly suffering from humidity with breakouts and shiny T-zone and I don't even wear makeup!

    1. you should not use lemon as it causes sensitivity in the long run.

    2. Thatsq true lemon juice can cause sensitivity! However, if you stay out of the sun with it on your skin it won't! Just be sure to rinse off with cold water after 15-60 minutes!

  22. My face skin temperature is high than others...i am also suffering from pimples...my skin looks dull....i wash my face well & use moister creams...what is simple way???should i use ice cubes...if yes then how???pls help

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hey Ovi...well, the skin temperature is something which you can't control...improve diet and sleep properly...the skin dullness would slowly go away...whenever you think your skin is looking dull, you can use a face mist or something and blot the oil from the face using a blotting paper or a tissue paper. and, make sure you use a good product at night coz it goes a long way in ensuring your skin doesn't look dull and also, you can use a compact/loose face powder to even skin tone and make it look bright.

  23. does ice cube help in reducing black heads?

    ReplyDelete
  24. What do you mean put it in a cloth? How does that work? Can I also cover the ice cube with plastic like a ziplock bag? And are you rubbing the cube all over your face? And for how long? After applying the cube, do I just leave my face or damp my face with a towel? Sorry for asking so many questions but please answer them.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes, you can use a ziplock bag. wrapping inside a cloth means wrapping ice with thin cheese cloth or cotton cloth. you can use it till your face feels too cold to handle ice or it melts. after using it, when the face is damp, follow with a moisturizer. do this on clean skin.

You said it was not a good thing in the long run. If I do stop using it, do you think my face sensitivity will to back to not being so sensitive? Can anything help?

    1. hi Rena...don't worry you can comment on old posts as well..I get all notifications :)
      yup, you should not use lemon juice too much. check out this post:

      well, leaving using it won't make your skin back to what it was but it will gradually help a lot!!! just make sure not to use too much acidic products or ingredients because all of them cause sensitivity!!

  27. Hi swati..I'm just wondering what do i do MY FACE LOOK DULL AND LIKE OLD BECAUSE ITS OILY AND END UP LOOKING DARK BUT MY COMPLEXION IS FAIR AND WHEN I SLEEP MY FACE WOULD LOOK REFRESH AND WHITE...so what can i do will rubbing ice help?? WHAT CAN I ALSO DO TO LIGHTEN DARK CIRCLES. SORRY FOR THE QUESTIONS BUY THE WAY IM ONLY 12 and you kinda bothers me

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes, using ice will definitely help and I would also suggest you to use blotting or tissue papers to remove the oil from your face whenever you feel the need or otherwise use a good compact or loose powder which can prevent oily face. using aloevera gel also helps in curbing oil.
      for dark circles, almond oil is very very good so just don't be afraid of oil at all and take a drop of almond oil and apply it on your eyes area using the ring finger.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. pores would be visible if you look very closely and they can never be totally closed because they are holes literally but you can only minimize their sizes only temporarily. yes, do the ice pack. and, everyday, you can use a toner. it helps with the pore size.

  38. For women, make green tea, let it cool, pour into ice cube tray and use as everyone is talking about. It's a great toner! So use green tea in place of orange/apple juice.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I just wrote a comment but not sure it published. Another great idea for women is using green tea instead of orange/apple juice. It's an amazing toner you don't wash off!

    Make green tea, let it cool, pour into ice cube trays and freeze it and use as directed above, but don't washed off, and let dry then put lotion and anything else.

  63. Ice cubes/and...

    Tip 1:

    Rinsing Ice Cold water over your face after cleansing and then letting your facial skin "Air dry" will naturally close your pores. You will feel your skin tingling as it air dries (if your pores are open) this is a good sign.
    After, apply a cream you feel is useful and will benefit your skin for whatever it is going through. Apply gently.

    I discovered this system when my skin would not budge with its open pores. I felt like I had no control, creams worked but up until a point. I'm only 24 years old, but the stress has built upon my face.

    NOW I use Ice Cubes (sometimes frozen with antioxidants aka fruits/natural juices) and Ice Cold Water along with the creams! All the while being extra gentle!
    Don't forget to wrap your ice cubes in a little facial towel.

    5. wow...m so glad it worked :) pimples recurrence is an issue which can be either hormonal or due to diet issues or some other problem like clogged pores so keep your skin clean and your diet under control and exercise, everything will be fine :)
      and, for pimples, apply ginger juice.

  76. Hi swati how many times i can put icecubes on face for a day

  77. I'm 23 and I have an acne now for almost 6 months already. It multiplies fast. Im really frustrated and my self esteem goes down. I wonder what causes it, I have clear skin before. Ive tried several products and went to the derma already. I had injections, peeling and stuff, i take antibiotics but nothing seems to work. And now Im using ice on my face for 4 days already. Directly applying it after washing in the morning and at night. And i stopped applying any products on my face. And I saw results already. The redness and bumps seems to slowly fade. Im planning to do this religiously. Can ice really stop acne?? And can i apply cream like Pan Oxyl after applying ice?? Or its much better to apply anti acne medications after washing?? Pls. reply thanks..

    1. hi. for acne, try ginger juice.
      http://www.perfectskincareforyou.com/2010/07/use-ginger-to-get-rid-of-acne.html

      ice does not help with acne. do it only once a day and wrap it up safely before using it on the skin. it helps with redness and other things but with active acne, it has generally no effect. i have no idea about the cream you are talking but if the anti-acne medications are working for you, continue using them. hope this helps :)

    1. Ice cubes only remove tanning and control oil.to avoid dull skin, keep removing the oil from your face. It really helps. Carry tissue papers with you.
