So whether it's water retention-related puffiness, allergies or hay fever or you're just feeling hot and bothered, these are the refreshing tool that anyone can use.
We spoke to celebrity facialist and aesthetic practitioner Sarah-Jane Malins owner of Aesthetics by Sarah-Jane. She swears by the Ice Globes during her bespoke facials, ‘‘Facial Ice Globes? A big yes from me. I offer electrical and deep anti-bacterial cleansing facials and I need these little cooling wands to work their magic at the end of my treatments. They reduce inflammation, de-stress the skin & give wonderfully intense head relief. I’m so impressed that I’ve been working with a facialist company and will be releasing my own next month for my clients to enjoy at home.”
It’s acknowledged that applying massage tools to the face can improve lymphatic drainage, aid puffiness and improve blood flow to the area but, many of the tools on the market don’t stay cool when applied. This is where the Ice Globes triumph. Pop the handheld globes into the freezer, the liquid inside the glass won’t freeze but provides a long-lasting cooling sensation.
How to use Facial Ice Globes:
The Ice Globes are also a favourite amongst those suffering with sinus pain, migraines and headaches, offering a natural treatment alternative. Close your eyes and roll the globes softly around the eye, temple and forehead area to help with tension release. If your fingers start to get a bit chilly while holding these fresh out of the freezer, wrap the handle in a cloth to avoid frost-bitten fingertips!
Use upwards motions to give the skin a tightened appearance, the skin will be firmer to touch, sculpted and more toned. If you’re searching for a cure for puffiness due to fluid retention, roll the globes in a downward motion, being careful not to pull down too firmly, to help with lymphatic drainage and inflammation. The globes fit into the contours of the face smoothly, with no ‘drag’ on the surface of the skin, perfect for those with angry, irritated or inflamed skin conditions like acne or psoriasis.
How to look after your Facial Ice Globes:
Once finished using, we recommend washing the globes in lukewarm soapy water and dry with a microfibre cloth to ensure they are bacteria free for next time - a good tip for all facial massage tools that you might use. (Putting the bacteria from your face onto the tool, then back into the freezer isn’t enough to kill acne-causing germs, freezing bacteria only sends them into hibernation mode and they’ll thrive as soon as they are thawed.)
