Holding ice on a pesky pimple is a no-fuss way to get the red out. Ice decreases inflammation, and can even relieve the pain associated with acne. Wrap a cube in a ziplock baggie (a rough towel can break tender skin), hold against the affected area for five to ten minutes, and tell that zit to chill!
Before patting on foundation, run an ice cube over your face, focusing on areas with enlarged pores. The cold water will cause pores to reduce in size and minimize their appearance under makeup. Icing these areas before your application of a primer can yield extra-smooth results fit for an ice queen.
