How to safely ice your face

All you need to ice your face is, well, some ice. But do not apply it directly to your face , as it could cause irritation and redness.

Instead, wrap an ice cube in a thin cloth, which will protect the skin on your face and your hands, and begin to lightly massage your face. Rub the ice around your face in a circular motion.  Lightly massage the following areas:

  • Around your mouth.

  • Cheeks.

  • Chin.

  • Forehead.

  • Jaw.

  • Nose.
