Beauty Hacks You Never Knew You Needed (Part I)

We’re eager to welcome the much-needed holly jolly and boisterous merrymaking that comes with the festive season. Amidst the disarray we’ve been thrown into this past year, we’ve realised the importance of self-love and by extension, pampering oneself (and one’s skin). Navigate your way through the festivities and put your best face forward with these two beauty tools you never knew you needed. Whether you like it au naturale or glamourous - as the season calls for, these hacks got you covered.

 

Ice Globes

If, like us, you’ve a new-found appreciation for bare-faced beauty (having been confined for the most part of the year) you’ll be delighted to discover the wonders of ice globes - no, we’re not talking about Santa in a snow globe. Ice globes offer the same benefits as traditional skin icing which has been attributed to the "Glass Skin" which is synonymous to Korean beauty and epitomises luminous, translucent, healthy skin. Picture swirling an ice cube on your skin but without the mess and possible frostbite (ouch!). Here comes the best part (squeals!) - ice globes render immediate results of radiant, glowing skin enabling you to flaunt your skin in all its glory this festive season; or when needed, to rejuvenate your skin when the merrymaking and indulgent feasting begins to bear its toll.

 

 

Benefits

Similar to the well-loved jade and rose quartz rollers, ice globes come with a host of benefits and deliver optimal results when used regularly.

 

  • Boost blood circulation and brightens skin with a perceptible radiance

  • Reduce inflammation, puffiness, redness and acne scarring

  • Minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and sculpts the jawline

  • Tightens and plumps the skin

  • Improve skin’s tone and texture

  • Minimize pore size

  • Aid lymphatic drainage and relieves sinus pain, headaches and migraines

  • Suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin

 

How to Use

Bask in a soothing facial massage within the comforts of your home and enjoy the oft-sought effects of cryotherapy with the following steps:

 

  1. Gently clean the ice globes. Use an alcohol-based sanitizer and spray an even layer over the ice globes. Wipe off using a clean and soft material. 

  2. Place the ice globes in the freezer for at least 20 minutes. If preferred, the ice globes can be kept in the freezer overnight.

  3. Cleanse your face and apply your preferred serum, oil or face mask. See our "Supercharge Your Ice Globes" section below for our recommended skincare to complement your ice globes.

  4. Massage your face to rejuvenate your skin. To get you going, here are 2 recommended massage techniques.

 

Skin Lifting Massage

Also known as a facelift massage, this massage technique sets out to do just as its name suggests - to lift your face and foster youthful skin through the use of upward strokes. This massage addresses eye hollows and folds which develop over the passage of time, smoothing out wrinkles and tightening saggy skin.

For best results, incorporate this into your daily morning routine. Repeat each stroke 5-10 times before moving on to the next area.

Lymphatic Massage

This massage technique helps drain toxins and rejuvenates the skin, restoring nutrients by employing downward and outward strokes. When used in conjunction with the ice globes, it reduces sallowness, puffiness and pores, delivering a glow to the skin.

For optimal results, incorporate this massage into your evening routine for 10-15 minutes.

Caring For Your Ice Globes

After each use, clean your ice globes with soap and water and a damp soft cloth. Keep your ice globes in a cool, dark place away from heat and direct light sources. The ice globes are made of glass and thus breakable - do not store them in the freezer for extended periods (ie. days).
