Love cooling facials and how they feel on your skin? Well, if you haven’t heard of cryotherapy, you might be missing out.
Cryotherapy is the next big trend in anti-ageing facials. Initially used by professional athletes, cryotherapy exposes the body to extreme temperatures for a short period to promote muscle repairing, weight loss, pain relief, and reduced inflammation.
On the face, cryotherapy helps brighten your complexion and tighten your pores. At the same time, it boosts blood flow so that your skin can look healthy and plump instantly.
While you used to have to visit a professional salon to get these ice-cold facials, they are now readily available at home, thanks to these products and devices.
Charlotte Tilbury Cryo-Recovery Face Mask
This reusable mask uses both cryotherapy and facial acupuncture to deliver firmer, refreshed, and revived skin.
All you have to do is place the mask the protective pouch and leave in a freezer for at least 30 minutes. Place the gel side onto your face and then pull the top and bottom Velcro straps at the back of your head to secure the mask.
Relax for 10 minutes, massage the metal beads into pressure points as desired, and you’re done! Remove and clean the mask and store for the next use.
