Bella Hadid did something, and TikTok caught a whiff of it. You haven't heard? The 25-year-old supermodel debuted a very shiny, lit-up jaw in a carousel of Instagram photos, and everyone was scrambling to recreate the face-sculpting look with a highlighter.
And the result? Stunning. Anyway, before we start gushing over the look again, we must tell you about a skincare hack she shared with the internet recently. You're going to love it.
What did Bella do this time?
In a video shared by Bella on Instagram, she's seen dunking her face in a bowl of ice. But why? It's simple. If you've noticed how puffy your face is in the morning, and haven't been able to counteract the issue, this is your solution. Yup. Submerging your face in a vessel brimming with ice in the morning. And it works. Let's talk about the science behind this method.
How does this method work?
Think about it. Why do we refrigerate our masks and skincare formulas before slapping them onto our skin? Or roll ice-globes on our faces? The act of icing the skin isn't just limited to easing swelling or pain related to injuries. It can depuff the face by constricting the vessels in our face. This diminishes the appearance of pores and wrinkles and endows your skin with a healthy, radiant glow. And it boosts circulation, and brings blood to the surface of the skin, in turn, reducing inflammation and redness instantly, and restoring optimum cell function. Pretty cool, no?
You can layer your face with a radiance-inducing serum like the Pond’s Spot-less Glow Serum after icing your skin to enable effective penetration of the product. Infused with three powerful ingredients — vitamin B3, gluta boost-C and hyaluronic acid, this one with give you extra smooth, nourished and soft skin.
Any risks associated with icing?
Before you try this out, you must consult your doctor. Especially if you have preexisting skin or health conditions. And refrain from prolonged contact with ice. It can lead to ice-burn on the surface of the skin.
