Ice what? If you have a freezer, you can start ice rolling sooner than you think. (Make sure to check out my giveaway at the bottom!)
We all know what it's like to wake up in the morning with a puffy, red face. Regardless of how many hours of sleep or martinis you racked up the night before, there really hasn't been a solution to instantly cool and firm your face after waking up, until now. Like so many women, I am no stranger to the old frozen wet spoons trick for my cheeks and under-eye circles. Now, the first thing I do after getting out of the shower, is ice roll.
Still confused? Let me break it down a bit more.
Ice rollers are incredibly popular abroad and have only recently started to gain notoriety in the states. Often found behind-the-scenes at photo shoots and runway shows, many make-up artists swear by ice rollers to calm the skin. Everything about ice rolling ice simple, right down to the actual roller. The Hansderma SkinCool Ice Roller I love and use daily is an easy handheld device filled with water and gel. All I do is take it out of the freezer, and gently roll and massage across my face. Within seconds of using the ice roller, yes seconds, I can feel my skin tighten and the see the puffiness and redness dissipate. I especially love using it on my under eye circles. I've also started to apply a few drops of my favorite nutrient-rich Glossier serum, on my skin before ice rolling. The ice roller then evenly spreads the serum on my face and feels absolutely amazing.
Men have also found ice rolling beneficial, especially after a close shave to help eliminate razor burn and redness. I've also used my ice roller for the countless times I've bumped my knees on anything and everything in my apartment. Bye bye bruising.
I know what you're thinking, this seems completely unnecessary and a bit of a production. I can assure you, that once you try it, it will seem as crucial as brushing your teeth. If you're still skeptical, make sure to check out this article (number 3 could not be more true.) This YouTube Tutorial is also great!
