22 Feb HACKY MONDAYS – ICE LOLLIES CURE BLOTCHY SKIN
If you’re suffering from blotchy skin, take some advice from Aussie make-up pro, Napoleon Perdis, and suck on an ice-lolly.
Redness and blotching on the face are caused by the blood vessels in your skin dilating. Sucking on some ice will cool the hard palate on the roof of your mouth which is directly linked to the nerve endings in you face, so as it cools, the blood vessels constrict and decrease the redness. (An ice lolly would be tastier, but an ice-cube will do)
Hurrah for medicinal ice-cream!
