A practice that is known to be well-practised by Korean women who are well known for their elaborate beauty routines.All you need is a bowl big enough to comfortably fit your face and ice. Modern-day routines have culminated into cryotherapy and this beauty practice is most basic at its form.

All you have to is take a bowl filled with icy water and dip your face in it for a good 30 seconds and with a soft cloth, mildly dab your face. Do it twice or maximum thrice, once in the morning and evening.

Another way to go about it is to roll three ice cubes in a soft cotton cloth and then in circular motions, softly rub it across your face.
