Why You Should Be Icing Your Face Daily

Why You Should Be Icing Your Face Daily

The secret to reducing puffiness, decreasing anxiety, and having GLOWING skin?... Ice! Yes, you read that right. Facial icing is one of my FAVORITE skincare rituals. It’s easy to do, only takes a few minutes each day, and has major benefits.

If you aren’t already icing your face on the daily, here’s your sign to start. 

Before I dive into a few wild benefits from icing your face (just in case you weren’t convinced already), let’s make sure we’re on the same page about what icing your face actually means.

What does it mean to ice your face?

It’s exactly what it sounds like! It’s the process of applying ice to your face. The most convenient way to do this is by using a cold roller. Simply use the cold roller to roll over your face in an upwards direction. You will go over the cheeks, around your eyes, jawline, neck, and chest area. I recommend this for 5-10 minutes daily! But honestly, even 1 minute is better than nothing. (Throw your cold roller in your fridge or freezer for at least 20 minutes before use or just leave it in there for convenience.) Now, what’s all the hype about?

#1: Say goodbye to redness and inflammation! 

Icing AKA cold rolling is hands down the BEST way to help your skin recover from any redness or inflammation. The combination of increased blood flow and cold application helps soothe, reduce redness, and increase the speed of recovery. 

#2: Decreases anxiety.

Cold rolling is a form of cold therapy, which has been seen to help with lowering anxiety. This is because any time you are applying cold pressure and focusing on the movements as you move the cold roller across your face, the temperature of the skin reduces and lowers the heart rate as well. By slowing down the release of cortisol and adrenaline, any anxiety symptoms diminish. Give it a try the next time you’re feeling a bit anxious!

#3: It gives you a more light, bright, and radiant look. 

Wrinkles, who? Skin icing has been shown to help reduce signs of aging, such as wrinkles, resulting in a bright and radiant complexion. Voila, glowing and youthful skin with something as simple as ice! 

#4: It’s the perfect facial massage. 

Doing facial massage has benefits in itself - increasing circulation, releasing muscle tension from the face, lifting the skin, and so much more. 

#5: Pick it up and take it with you anywhere!

Keep a cold roller at home in the fridge, in the treatment room and pick up a mini cold roller for on the go! Mini cold rollers are PERFECT for your vacations or beach day. I love to have one on me when I go to the beach or pool. (KB tip: Keep them in your cooler & share with friends.) Having glowing skin has never been so easy. 

If you aren’t already stocked up on cold rollers, grab yours here! Start including these into your morning routine as you sip on your coffee and I guarantee, you’ll notice a difference almost immediately.
