Notes on Ice Plunging

I can often wake up in the morning with puffiness around my eyes and sometimes even my entire face 鈥 especially if I鈥檝e had a bit of a late night.聽For an instant fix, I often use this age old remedy. The Ice Plunge.

Here’s my quick guide below …

Fill a large bowl of cold water from the refrigerator along with 10 ice cubes (and sliced cucumber if you like to be fancy)

Plunge your face into the water for 5-10 seconds at a time.

Repeat this 10 times.

If you鈥檙e in a hurry, run an ice cube under water and glide it underneath your eyes and over your face.聽

Pat dry and apply a hydrating mist and serum.

Finish with a light weight moisturiser.

The cold water works to stimulate lymphatic circulation and blood flow, to flush the face. It also constricts capillaries and pores, leaving skin refined and awake!聽 I also plunge my feet and ankles in ice cold water when travelling to reduce fluid retention and swollen ankles and feet.
