Ice Ice Baby! 

Ice Rolling: What is it? Why it is good for our skin?

If the idea of rubbing ice cubes on your face is a turn-off, don’t worry! The name of this new  skin treatment, ​Ice Rolling
​ , may be misleading. During the treatment, facial massagers are simply chilled, not frozen. But how does adding cool temperature to a facial massage benefit your skin?

According to Hannah Johnson from ​the Klog explains:

“Cold temperatures cause constriction in the skin, resulting in a shrinking effect on the appearance of pores and blood vessels, creating a smoother,  more even-toned surface over time. Cold treatments can also soothe inflammation and irritation, which is perfect for those who experience sensitivity or redness in their skin….The constricting effect of ice rollers also offers an efficient way to seal the blood vessels in the skin after applying a  treatment such as serum or essence. Used at the end of your skincare routine, an ice roller massage soothes and smooths skin, aiding in lymphatic  drainage as much as a fingertip massage, with the added benefits of the cold  temperature” (Johnson)

In short, if you’re looking for quick relief to reduce puffiness, redness and uneven skin tone, an ice rolling might be your new go-to skincare treatment! Other uses for  Ice Rolling include:

● Soothe after an exfoliation (like Microdermabrasion from Bellagena)

● Soothe under eye puffiness

● Reduce pain after waxing/ threading

● Soothe irritated breakouts

Treat yourself to an at-home facial experience by trying an Ice Roller. For best results, use an ice roller or cooled -not frozen- jade roller that was previously wiped down with rubbing alcohol for cleanliness.
