To be TOTALLY transparent, I’m blogging from an iPhone currently because for some annoying, dreadful reason our Internet has decided to go KAPUT.
It’s always something.
Regardless, I’m over it because I literally just ate 1/3 ( 1/2? ) a container of raw almond butter…& raw almond butter always makes everything better.
Ok let’s talk about my BEST BEAUTY TIP.
YES, I’M MAKING THAT STATEMENT.
HEARE YE, HEARE YE, we are gathered here today to discuss: ICE ROLLERS.
( Firstly, if grammar isn’t an A+ & punctuation is MEH, remember to give me a break because WELL, I’m on an iPhone. Bear with me, k? ).
Ok so, we’ve all been there: went overboard on the salted half rimmed margaritas, one too many slices of late night pizza, & just an all-around late night.
The cure? A morning ice roll.
I swear it like primes my face for makeup. Plus it freezes my wrinkles, no joke AND shrinks pores. If you’re a swollen mess from the night before, have no fear— an ice roller is here.
Here’s the deal. I’ve been doing ice facials since Sonja Morgan from RHONY recommended them after a brutal hangover circa 2014-ish when noble Countess LuAnn was yelling at Heather Yummie Tummie about being ‘uncool.’ It really wasn’t until my brutal jaw surgery that I discovered the IT beauty tip ( AKA MY LIFE LINE ).
So I was like, “umm, yes. This will make life easier PLUS give me a little lymphatic drainage while I’m rolling downward on my swollen jaw.”
Added to cart……..& then shit, the rest is history.
Not only did I fall absolutely HEAD OVER HEELS in love with my ice roller , I also entered into a committed relationship with my ice roller. Let’s put it this way: I use it every ( EVERY ) day, once sometimes twice a day for as long as it’s cold ( usually 2 to 3 minutes per time ). In fact, I’m grumpy if I don’t get to use it first thing in the AM!
This may very well be that I’m still a bit swollen ( YES, I KNOW— highly annoying ). Regardless I’ve been saying for years how amazing ice facials are ( WHAT UP, KATE MOSS— the supermodel does ice facials every morning ). Ice facials ARE most definitely insane but let’s be real: ice rolling is just more convenient.
What’s an ice roller you ask?
AN ICE ROLLER ROLLS FREEZING-NESS ALL OVER YOUR FACE.
Maybe not the most eloquent way to describe the tool, but it is what it is.
According to this source, the tool “is incredibly simple, intuitive, and low-effort. The fun part is that it lives in your freezer, so you just keep it in there to ensure that the roller head is always cool. Each morning, when you want to wake up and energize your skin, roll it over your cheeks, eye area, and neck. The tightening effect makes your face and jawline look slimmer, like a great contouring job in the form of a pleasant and cooling spa-like experience.”
UM HELLO? YES.
If this hasn’t transformed your beauty routine yet, let me tell you why you NEED one.
The benefits are endless really:
♡ A cold massage that tightens up pores/wrinkles while giving you kind of a lymphatic drainage.
♡ Minimizes redness, swelling, discomfort, &/or irritation while fighting fatigue.
♡ Prevents wrinkle formation & lifts your face. YES.
♡ Roll it on your eyes: puffy eyes are a bitch. This literally helps so much with any eye puffiness. If you just had an eyebrow wax? Use it on your eyebrows to fight any swelling or redness.
♡ I also roll it on my neck & chest. It seriously revitalizes & lifts EVERYWHERE.
If you’ve been happy hour drinking alcohol and got a messed up hangover in the morning, try this awesome routine using the Ice Roller. You’ll love this!
How To Get Rid of Hangover Puffy Eyes & Face:
Hangover Puffy Face
Roll the Ice Roller across in upward motion across your face, across your cheeks, pushing it away from the center of your face. On your forehead, roll it starting at the top of your brows up to the hairline. The upward strokes give the lifting and tightening of the skin. Don’t forget your chin, where some lymph nodes are located, roll it in an upward motion. This is really going to relieve all the blood vessels and broken capillaries on your face as well as all the toxins. With it’s ice anti-inflammatory features, it will definitely take off those hangover face.
The only thing you consider downward motion is on your neck and the back of your ears where most of the lymph nodes are located. You will definitely feel good after a soothing ice roll.
Hangover Puffy Eyes
To de puff and get rid of those dark circles, roll it under your eyes. Start at the corner of your eye and roll it in outwards motion all the way to your ear where a lymph node is located. You can also roll it on your eyelids to help relieve those red eyes from those happy hour or those movie marathons you’ve been binging.
Using sheet masks, eye creams, or even tea bags can help relieve your hangover puffy eyes and face but it can be a little bit messy so an Ice roller is much more efficient. The ice roller is also perfect for dry skin that can help shrink the size of your pores, making your skin appear more even and reduces the possibility of clogging your pores. Just place it in your freezer for a couple of minutes and it’s ready to go!
Taking care of your Ice Roller is easy, just wash it with mild soap and water (hot or cold water), towel dry completely before returning it to the freezer. Ready for next use!
None of this is sponsored. Just buy an ice roller & prepare to FALL IN LOVE. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
BOYS: you need this too, especially after shaving.
Have you guys tried an ice roller? Do you love? How CRAZY is it? Especially when you’re hungover. It’s like magic.
