The Chilling Secret to Beautiful Skin
In the ever-evolving skincare landscape, there's always a new trend on the horizon, and one that's generating buzz is Skin Icing. But here’s the kicker, Skin Icing or Facial Icing isn’t new, it has in fact been used for centuries to help calm and rejuvenate skin.
But what exactly are the benefits to rubbing ice on your face, how can it upgrade your skincare routine and why do so many makeup artists and celebrities use it as their secret weapon for skin prep.
What is Skin Icing?
Skin icing, as the name implies, involves using ice or cold temperatures to treat the skin, providing an easy, yet highly effective at-home technique with numerous complexion benefits. Applying ice on your face alone, however, can be too harsh to the skin, which is why AMEŌN's award winning FROZEN ESSENCETM ice cubes are packed with a harmonious blend of super-hero ingredients to boost the benefits is icing even further.
Promotes optimized absorption
Chilled skin is more receptive to skincare products, ice causes the capillaries to restrict and creates a pulling effect that helps ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin. That’s why we love to use frozen skincare!
Helps strengthen skin elasticity
If used regularly over a period of time, Skin Icing can help promote the production of collagen in the skin through increased circulation, helping to support skin elasticity.
Minimize the appearance of pores
The appearance of enlarged pores is minimized as the skin contracts through contact with ice or extreme cold resulting in a smoother appearance.
Helps to revive and rejuvenate skin and overall well-being
Applying ice to the skin has instant effects of calm cooling relief for red irritated skin and can also be a perfect remedy for morning facial puffiness (think of it as a “No-downtime” Facial). Post-icing, the skin will respond by increasing blood flow to the area resulting in a healthier more radiant looking complexion. Let’s not forget that blast of ice will help wake you up for the day!
