Cryotherapy, commonly known as cold therapy, is the use of ice cubes to massage the skin. This is a technique that I often use in my facials for its ability to close pores, send blood away from the surface of skin, relax facial muscles and give dull skin a boost.
This is a great tip to do at home if you are suffering from inflammed, angry breakouts, redness or you need to perk your skin up before an event. Gently massage 2 ice cubes over cleansed skin, concentrating on any areas of redness, inflammation and breakout. Follow with moisturiser and makeup.
If you suffer from extremely dry skin, try applying your moisturiser first. The ice will close the pores and trap the moisturiser into the skin giving you deeper hydration.
