The Benefits of Cold Exposure Therapy for your Skin
Besides feeling very good on the skin, cold therapy is beneficial for skin in several ways. Whether done alone or paired with serums or other ingredients, cold therapy (or cryotherapy) can leave skin healthier, younger-looking, and more refreshed. Here are the benefits of cold therapy for skin.
Improves antioxidant levels
Being exposed to cold can raise the level of antioxidants. This can help repair sun-damaged skin. It can also help prevent premature aging of the skin from accumulated sun damage and damage from free radicals in the environment. And it helps soothe inflammation of the skin.
Got a puffy under-eye area? Cold therapy can help. Try out our Cryo Freeze Eye Globes for de-puffing. Just pop them in the freezer, then gently roll them along the under-eye area. (It’s important to roll, not drag them across the surface of the skin. Dragging can pull and stretch out the delicate under-eye area.) Cold therapy can also stimulate lymphatic drainage, reducing puffiness in the face.
Cold therapy can temporarily shrink the size of your pores. When exposed to cold temperatures, pores close up, making them less visible if big pores are an issue for you. This can also be of help to acne-prone skin.
Stimulates collagen production
Cryotherapy can help stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is an essential component of skin that tightens it and keeps its elasticity, both important for preventing signs of aging.
