An ice cube facial will make you rethink your notions of what a facial should be. An ice cube facial uses either a towel filled with ice cubes to rub on your face for a good 30 seconds, or dunking your face in ice cold water – relaxing it certainly is not! It does however come with benefits that you will love and makes the shock factor of the icy conditions oh-so-worth-it!
