10 Ways To Use Ice For Flawless Skin
1. For Instant Glow:
- You want to head out after a long and tiring day in the office, you came home, washed your face, but it still looks pretty dull.

2. Longer Lasting Make-Up:
- The monsoons and summer heat cause your make-up to run in just a few hours. The humidity sure doesn’t help!
- Try rubbing an ice cube on your face before applying any cosmetics.
- This will help your make-up last a lot longer than it usually does.
3. Improve Skin Texture:
