Fall may be just around the corner, but temperatures can still reach record-breaking heights before the season's out. While air-conditioning can provide you with some much-welcomed relief from these perilously warm days, your skin may be suffering from the effects of the heat.
If that's the case, you could try setting your favorite skincare products in the freezer. You may be skeptical, but according to experts this trick can be an excellent way to keep skin damage at bay.
"Cold causes blood vessels to constrict," Joshua Zeichner, director of cosmetic and clinical research in the dermatology department at New York City's Mt. Sinai Hospital, told Allure Magazine.
A skin care product that has been left to chill for an hour in the freezer may help reduce inflammation and under-eye baggage brought on by heat, according to the source. "[This works] just like an ice pack or a bag of frozen peas would," added Zeichner.
The next time a heat wave settles over your town, this clever trick may be just the thing to boost your beauty look. With a potent product like Elemis Absolute Eye Mask you can brighten and rejuvenate the appearance of your eyes, all while staying completely cool.
