The use of ice for the face has been called cryotherapy. This procedure allows you to get rid of wrinkles and other skin problems. You can do it yourself with simple recipes.
Cryotherapy can solve the problems associated with the withering of the skin, and also helps to get rid of a number of cosmetic defects. The technique is a short-term exposure to cold on the skin. At a low temperature, the vessels contract and expand rapidly. This allows you to accelerate the physiological processes occurring in the skin.
The procedure also includes cryomassage. When accelerating the regeneration process in the skin, massage becomes possible to improve the efficiency of ice. Cold has antibacterial and analgesic effects and also helps to achieve the effect of lifting. At home, ice cubes are used to cool the skin, and liquid nitrogen is used in the cabin.
The procedure is necessary in the presence of a number of indications:
- Wrinkles and flabbiness of the skin
- Decreased skin tone
- An omission of the face
- Disturbed blood circulation
- Pale and unhealthy complexion
- Expanded pores
- Increased secretion of sebum
- Acne sickness
- Uneven skin relief
- Scars and post-acne
To remove the remnants of the cleanser, you must wash your face with water, and then with foam or gel. Washing in 2 stages will allow you to effectively prepare the skin for the effects of the caring components of ice. If the skin is not cleaned completely and surface irregularities are felt on its surface, a soft scrub or peeling should be used. An alternative to this step will be the use of sponge during washing.
An analogue of cryomassage is shock cryotherapy. To do this, you need to put ice cubes in a wide container, filling it to the brim. Next, it is necessary to completely immerse the face in the container for a few seconds, until the tingling on the skin becomes noticeable. In addition, the impact can only be carried out on problem areas with one ice cube.
You should not choose a form for making spherical ice. Such ice will slide in the hand, because of what it is difficult to hold and move along the massage lines.
