Iv'e been doing this for YEARS. I do it morning and evening. My makeup goes on very smooth. My breakouts are def. less red! this was a life saver for me but ive heard that some people had a bad reaction to it for some reason.
I felt some burning sensation on my cheeks with slight swelling so tried this ice thing by rubbing ice cubes on cheeks and arround the whole face. When I woke up next morning swelling was gone but it left light patches on cheeks. More than a week has been passed its still there. I don't know what to do. Is this normal? And how to treat this? Please help.
I do this every morning and evening and it's been wonderful for me. I don't hold the ice though. The only time I did, I got a frostbite. But it's great if you just rub a cube of ice all over your face until it has all melted (wrap it in a muslin cloth if your face is sensitive). By the way, green tea ice cubes work extra well, since tea is antibacterial.
Basically what this does is reduces or even stops inflammation and tightens pores. Reduces overall morning puffiness. If you do it before bedtime, it may help to avoid overnight acne. And rubbing face with ice in the morning reduces oiliness during the day. It's been the only thing, that has ever helped me to prevent skin from getting worse after picking.
Cons: this doesn't unclog pores, you will still need to find a good, gentle way to clean your skin.
Put an ice cube in a paper towel and hold it on a really big zit for 5 minutes and the puffiness and swelling is all gone. Redness will still be there, but there will no longer be an enormous bump on yo face.
Ice doesn't get rid of acne itself, but it really helps reducing inflammation and pimple size.
I think it's most effective on inflamed zits. Haven't tried on ones that haven't inflamed yet. Anyway, a quick and easy spot treatment anyone can try. I recommend!
I am a teen boy and I have really really bad acne breakouts and my face really looks messed up. I applied ice on my pimples by wrapping the ice cubes in a cloth at night and the next day morning I observed that almost all my pimples appeared to be less swollen and less reddish.....the pimples almost vanishes after doing this for another 2 days.......but I am unable to stop the breakouts......I can't predict when that will happen.
can I ask a question? is using ice twice a day can't harm your face? I have oily face and acne prone skin :( i have lots of acne.. PLEASE HELP :'( I've been suffering acne for 4 years.. and now since it is summer, i want to cure my acne to have a clear face.. PLEASE HELP :(
