You’ve probably seen those at-home cryo tools like masks and ice rollers that promise to reduce skin inflammation and puffiness. These were inspired by cryotherapy, a technique used to kill cancerous and precancerous cells by exposing the tissue to extremely cold (we’re talking -166 to -222 degrees Fahrenheit here) temperatures.
You might have also seen or heard about people getting cryotherapy facials or going for whole-body cryotherapy sessions. That’s because cryotherapy techniques are also great for skincare.
Which is why we’ve made this amazing at-home cryo-inspired skincare hack our go-to routine this summer:
- Pop our 100% Cocoa Butter Stick in the freezer for 20 minutes
- Once 20 minutes are up, glide it all over your face (but not right under your eyes!)
- Let the nourishing cocoa butter soak into your skin and enjoy the benefits associated with cryo
And the best part? It’s only $1.75!
Now obviously, using cold cocoa butter on your skin isn’t the same thing as having a doctor dab liquid nitrogen onto it or submerging your whole body in a cryo booth for a few minutes. But it can have similar benefits for your skin, like:
●Firming your skin up
●Giving it a sharper, more sculpted look
Whether it’s cold, room temp or even warm, cocoa butter locks in hydration and keeps your face moisturized by creating a protective barrier between your skin and everything it’s exposed to. And while it’s keeping that softness secure, it can also help with:
●Lightening dark spots
●Diminishing wrinkles and fine lines
●Minimizing stretch marks
●Keeping your skin look and feel young, fresh and vibrant
But on these hot summer days, we prefer to take ours frozen!
No matter what temperature you take your 100% Cocoa Butter Stick, you can trust it’s #RealDealSkincare that won’t break the bank. Since 1969, our family-owned beauty brand has been committed to providing nutrient-rich, American-made skin and hair care that's the real deal and a GREAT deal.
