An Ice Cube Facial: Seriously A Bomb-Ass Beauty Tippity Tip

The Skinny Confidential talks ways to fight puffiness.
Ok so, this might be my favorite secret model tip in the whole world: dunking your face in a bowl of ice water.

Back up though…I just finished reading I Didn’t Come Here To Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain by Courtney Robertson— she’s a top model & was on The Bachelor, Ben’s season. Honestly I’m not a Bachelor/ette fan. I’ve never got in to the show. No offense to anyone who likes it ( because I know there’s a lotta die hard Bach lovers ) but it so cheese. Like, the girls are so damn dramatic…& bitchy/PMS-y. If I hear the phrase “the most dramatic season yet in Bachelor history” again, I might lose my mind.

BUT.

There are a lot of the girls that have been on the show, who are really rad. Remember this post on Michelle Money? She’s hilarious. I also love Emily Maynard ( doll ). Anddddd Courtney Robertson always stood out because of her feisty, no BS personality. Tenley is so cool too & one of the sweetest people I’ve ever met.

Ok, so we’re getting off track.

Point: I was reading Courtney’s juicy book & she reminded me a modeling tip that I used to do all the time but kinda forgot about— dunking my face in ice water.

Huh?

Ya. That’s right: ice.cold.water.in.the.morning.

I swear it works magic. Serious, serious magic. Plus it’s free.

Here’s what you do:

The Skinny Confidential talks ways to fight puffiness.
So instead of trying fancy-ass creams or complaining of puffy eyes, try this tip ( duration: 10-30 seconds, 3 times in the AM works best ). Models do this ALL the time before shoots because it de-puffs the eyes, eases redness, tightens the skin, fights wrinkles, & keeps them looking so fresh and so clean, clean. More here.

Also, anyone a Real Housewives fan? Whelp, the oh-so-fab-I-love-twenty-five-year-old-boys-cougar-minx, Sonia Morgan talks about this trick all the time. She says she HAS to do it every morning or she doesn’t look as fresh.

I have to agree. ESP if you’re hungover. Ice x water x your face= hangover cure for the face. The before & after is mind-blowing. After trying this, you literally wouldn’t want to leave the house before soaking your face in ice water.

Trust meeeee, you’ll be feeling bright eyed & bushy tailed immediately. Don’t have time to do this? Rub an ice cube all over your face while you’re brushing your teeth.

P.S. Lauren Conrad swears by “ice cube facials” too.

FML: 4th of July Weekend Salezy Sales…Too Good To Pass Up

The Skinny Confidential shares sales.

Holidays= tons of online sales. And basically sales mean I’m screwed.

It typically goes a little something like this: I’ll innocently click a measly little sale link via Facebook…& 45 minutes later, be completely sucked into all of the killer deals, steals, & mark downed items.

FML.

So anyway right now online stores are having some of the best 4th of July weekend sales ( like, seriously though— they’re too good ), so naturally I had to share my favs.

Side: remember my patio post? Well all my patio pieces ( white table, gold tray table, & outdoor rug ) are on sale for 25% off!
