This product is costless and is in your freezer. These are Ice cubes. It has innumerable uses we could never think about. Here are a number of ways that you could gain an advantage from a single ice cube.

2. Ice cube facial is great for your skin. Wrap an ice cube in a soft cloth or a muslin cloth. Massage it on your face for a few minutes.

Taking care of your skin is quite an easy task. Provided that you know your skin type and what product suits you. It's very important to clean your face well and add good products for your skin care routine.
We will start with serums. Serum is the first step towards your skin care regime. Serums are applied after cleansing, but before your moisturizer. Serum boosts your skin and helps in smoothening fine lines to reduce age spots. It fights wrinkles and brightens up the skin, adding more luminous. It also reduces sun damage and restores firmness. You can use it in the morning and at night before the day and night cream. Clarins, Oil of Olay, Channel, Estée Lauder, SK-II, Neutrogena etc have great serums. Choose the right one for your skin type and start taking care of your face right away.
I'm back with a great new tip. Yes, you can say it's the tip of the day or the tip of the year.
I'm sure some of you already have it at home. It's a very reasonable drug store product and can be used in multiple ways, it's the Johnson's Baby Oil. When I run out of my makeup wipes, all I do is grab my Johnson's Baby oil bottle and see the magic of the oil.
Take a cotton pad, pour a few drops of the oil on it and wipe your face with it. That's the easiest, reasonable and the most effective way to remove all the makeup from your face. It also removes every inch of eye makeup and mascara, without irritating the eye. Leave the oil for a few minutes on your face then wash it off. See how it leaves your skin super silky.
I hope you like this tip.
