Top Benefits Of Icing Your Face

Decreasing Puffiness

If you suffer from puffy eyes, either due to lack of sleep, stress or genetics, applying cold compresses to the area can improve this. Specialists have said that you can reduce the appearance of eye bags and puffiness by applying ice cubes over the undereye area. It is also believed that if you make caffeinated ice cubes, the coffee can penetrate the skin and aid blood to circulate.

Soothing Acne

Acne can be painful, inflamed, and produce excessive oil. Gently sweeping an ice cube over your problem areas can reduce the inflammation which can help with the painful areas. Ice can also decrease the amount of oil your acne is producing, which over time can reduce the amount of acne you suffer with.

It is important to note that if you have acne in different areas of your face, use a different ice cube for each area to prevent spreading bacteria and making the issue worse.

Makes You More Awake

If you suffer with tiredness in the morning, icing your face is a great way of waking you up. The cold sensation will encourage you to feel more alert (and make your skin feel good). It is a quick and extremely easy way of setting you up to start your day, especially if you are planning to work out.


Ice will immediately brighten your appearance and can eliminate any skin dullness. When your skin looks dull, it can make you look older, tired, and make the appearance of fine lines more apparent. Using an ice cube all over will brighten the skin’s surface, bring your face back to life and help you to look more awake, youthful, and bright.
