i've heard putting ice on pimples helps reduce the redness among other thing. is this true or just an urban legend? does it do anything at all or just make your face very numb?

here's a smiley playing a violin :boohoo:

peace

sweet i'll give it a try then. do you guys ice and then do the nightly regimen or what?

also

people claim a connection between drinking a lot of water and reducing acne. is there any validity to this? share your two cents.

ive only iced when i felt the need (which was once).

my 2c about water...some people swear by drinking alot of water. i don't know if it helpes acne, but drinking about 2 liters of water a day (about 66 oz. or the reccomended 8 glasses a day) flushes out your system which can't hurt you. green tea is another drink loaded with antioxidants that cleans out your system.

give it a shot, you've got nothing to lose.

I iced after i got out of the shower and before the BP. Water helps keep your skin hydrated. May help with drying out. I drink a lot of water throughout the day anyway so if it helps with my face, then bonus!

how do you apply the ice? wouldn't it irritate the pimple if it keeps on bumpin on it?

After you wash, just gently run an ice cube over the individual pimple, not your entire face, then apply bp and then your moisturizer. You don't want to hurt it or be rough, just very gently.
