DIY Green Tea Ice Cub Facial
Icing your skin can help reduce the look of oversized pores because its coldness constricts the skin. It has a toning effect that makes your skin look a whole lot smoother, and the cooling effect frozen water has on your face is amazing, especially during hot summer months. Because ice helps make your pores look smaller, it makes for a super amazing primer to apply before you put your makeup on in the morning. With ice on your side, your foundation is sure to look flawless and you might find that you don’t even need to use your concealer.
You’ll probably know already that green tea can help you look great from the inside out. Green tea’s components have an anti-inflammatory effect and refresh tired skin. Green tea is rich in various vitamins, minerals and catechins and it has an antioxidant effect. It contains polyphenols and flavonoids, which belong to the group of antioxidants and neutralize free radicals in the body. In this way, green tea counteracts skin aging and wrinkling. The skin cells can revitalize. Green tea is a true wrinkle killer and a real beauty elixir and therefor green tea is one of the ingredients we use in our skin care products.
But did you know that green tea’s antioxidants and caffeine make it a perfect candidate for soothing those puffy, tired eyes?
Sure, you can just lay a used tea bag under your eyes, but you can amp up the effectiveness even more by freezing a strong batch of brewed tea and apply it to your dark circles and puffiness once it’s frozen. Between the cold of the ice and the caffeine in the tea, you’ll look like you got a great night’s sleep even if you pulled an all-nighter.
Remember though, you shouldn’t use ice in one area for more than five minutes. If you feel like you haven’t gotten enough from your ice cube after five minutes, leave your skin to rest and recover for ten minutes before applying again.
