Keeping cool in the summer is no easy task and keeping your complexion happy is even harder. Enter the ice-cold skincare trend, where the healing powers of cool products and treatments go beyond a moment of relief from the heat. New tools and products are taking the trend to the next level, from Cryo Freeze Tool facials to cryotherapy values from 111Skin. So, what is the ice-cold skincare trend all about. Let me explain…

Ice-Cold Skincare: Products & Treatments

Firstly, you can go old school with a chilled face spritz or a splash of cold water. Low temperatures constrict blood vessels, which lowers inflammation and eases puffiness and fluid build-up. So, the old cold spoon under the eyes trick works for a reason. An ice cube to puffy, inflamed areas can also work well, but consider separating the ice and your skin with a muslin face cloth. But the new wave of ice-cold skincare treatments take the healing powers of freezing temperatures to the next level, to help boost circulation and tighten skin. Ready to give it a go? Here are the products and treatments to know.

There is also a Cryo Facial harnessing the power of hyper cooled air for a seriously refreshing treatment experience.
