I want to start this out by saying that I'm not certified in any way to give beauty type advice! I see things and I like to give them a try and I'll share my experiments with yall :)
I've always enjoyed cooling pads on my face but then I saw that facial icing is a thing, I wanted to give it a try!
A little run down of the ingredients:
- Chamomile is said to have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.
- Lemon Balm is said to help calm, heal, sooth and tighten skin.
- Rose Hips are said to aid in the regeneration of skin.
I also decided to add a few other ingredients. Manuka honey is also supposed to have great skin benefits like helping with inflammation and healing skin. I often just smear manuka honey on red areas of my face and it's very helpful!
Lavender is something that I like to include mostly for the lovely aroma but it again, has great anti-inflammatory properties as well!
There was already rose hips in the tea but I decided to crush up some rose petals to add them as well to have some physical rose in the cubes. This way, it adds a bit of texture :)
I've done this before and really liked the larger ice cubes so I make the mixture in one container, freeze it then break up the bigger block into smaller ones.
When I use these, they melt fast so it's great to hold the ice in a napkin or cloth. The cold really helps cool your face and wakes you up so I enjoy using these in the morning.
I've read that facial icing not only can help with inflammation and skin tightening but can also possibly help decrease the size of your pores which is awesome!
