Beauty hacks with ice cubes

When it comes to beauty hacks, an ice cube is one of the most underrated products. It’s easy to make and is practically free! There’s probably some in your freezer right now.

One of the most popular uses of ice cubes is for shrinking acne. A pimple is a small injury, after all. Ice can calm redness and swelling. It can even relieve pain in the same way it numbs bruises. However, remember that pimples are sensitive and also full of bacteria. So be careful when applying an ice cube on the face for acne.

There are many people who spend 10-12 hours in a day in front of laptop and television sets. They have no benefit on your skin but leave you with puffy eyes. In such case, take an ice-cube and rub it over your eyes. Ice cubes will relax your eyes, treat dark circles and reduce the puffiness too.

You can also mix cucumber juice with boiled rose water and freeze this mixture to put on your under-eye circles. It will help in fading away dark circles and also reduce puffiness. Don’t forget to cool down the rose water before putting it in the freezer.

Use of ice cubes before applying makeup has been practiced from ancient times. Rub a few ice cubes on your face and then apply makeup. This will help the makeup to stay well on your face and also last longer.

For a cheap facial, make milk ice cubes for the skin. The lactic acid in the milk will scrub away dead cells and freshen the skin up. You can even add pureed cucumber or blueberries for extra exfoliating power.
