Puffiness, or a face that appears bloated, swollen, and tired, happens to the best of us—and often after having the most fun (like some kind of karmic curse for enjoying yourself). Whether because of one too many cocktails, not sleeping enough, or OD’ing on salt, it sucks to wake up looking like an inflated blowfish. But a girl’s gotta have her french fries! And red wine, and sushi, and late night Netflix marathons.
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.
But the beauty of the tool extends beyond bloat-banishing; it can reduce irritation, redness, and the inflammation of a breakout (those painful, swollen blemishes you can feel under the skin). Many spas and aestheticians use ice rolling post-procedure to help calm redness after facial extractions and to cool skin if it feels hot from a laser or peel. You can also use it to calm skin after a wax (upper lip, eyebrows, etc.), if you’re red and hot after exercising, and if you have a burn from the sun or a chemical procedure.
