What are the benefits of facial icing?
You've got a ton of options when it comes to facial icing, so you'll want to make sure you're getting the best one for your skin type and needs. Akasha’s facial ice ball is a safe choice (BPA-free silicone ice molds) that is suited for all skin types, and is easy to use.
Ice facials are a great way to reduce puffiness and fine lines around the eyes and mouth. They reduce inflammation in these areas, which can help with puffiness, dryness, and inflammation. It's also an antioxidant treatment that helps fight free radicals in the body. Ice facials use frozen water (and/or other healthy liquids like sea moss gel) to create micro bubbles in your skin that cause it to become tighter and firmer than normal skin would be able to do on its own.
Sea moss gel, one of the best natural liquid superfoods to use in ice facials, is a unique addition to any skincare routine. Akasha’s sea moss gel is suitable for all skin types, as it hydrates the skin without clogging pores or causing irritation. Sea moss gel is rich in antioxidants and vitamins A, C, E, and K – all which help maintain healthy skin while preventing wrinkles from forming. The gel has been proven to help increase collagen production in your skin. Sea moss gel also has a cooling effect that helps to calm down any inflammation or irritation caused by sunburns or even hot showers.
Facial icing helps remove dead skin cells from the surface of your face. This will leave your skin smoother and more radiant. Icing also hydrates dry areas on the face – like lips, cheeks, and forehead. This helps prevent dryness in these areas as well as reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
Ice facials act as a barrier between your face and the environment. While this may sound strange at first, it can actually help prevent damage from UV rays, wind, and cold temperatures.
Not only does facial icing prevent wrinkles from forming prematurely (which can happen when you're exposed to environmental elements), it also helps protect against premature aging caused by free radicals. So while facial icing won't remove wrinkles or make you look younger than your years—it can help prevent premature aging by keeping your skin healthy and youthful-looking! And if that wasn't enough reason to try facial icing, there’s another: facial icing can also help with acne. Acne is caused by blocked pores and clogged follicles, so by improving the health of your skin cells with our natural products, you'll be able to reduce acne even more than usual!
