Everything you wanted to know about the ice face

We all at least once in our life have used the most basic and useful method i.e. ice cubes to get glow and reduce puffiness with ingredients like water, green tea etc.
The real science behind using ice as a facial is that it causes the blood to rise to the surface, soothes the surface, tightens the skin and gives the skin a rosy glow. The whole method is called frozen face or skin icing.

When vaporized nitrogen is used to cool the skin, it is called cryotherapy treatment. This technique was first developed in Japan in 1978 by rheumatologist Dr. Toshima Yamaguchi. The remedy is mainly used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, but is now widely used for skin rejuvenation, migraine pain, treatment of inflammatory skin diseases, etc.
Cryotherapy is a non-invasive mechanical treatment device that pumps liquid nitrogen into the face or body. It appears to brighten skin, tighten pores, plump lips and effectively reduce the appearance of fine lines or age spots in just 15 minutes.
