Ice Ice Baby: The Skincare Tool Changing the Industry
Cooling globes, also known as “magic”, icy, or cryo globes are a hot new trend in the esthetics industry.
These cold wands are filled with anti-freeze and stored in the fridge or freezer. They make an excellent addition to a facial service or can even be a fun way to change up your home care routine. The esthetician takes one of the globes into each hand and massages the client’s face in strategic patterns to promote lymphatic drainage and stimulate the facial nerves and muscles. The boost in blood flow to the area aids in the removal of toxins and improves the absorption of facial products. Additionally, the coolness of the globes is anti-inflammatory and can soothe the skin following extractions or microdermabrasion. It reduces puffiness and sinus pressure, which may help to alleviate headaches or migraines. The appearance of large pores and fine lines is also diminished from the treatment’s tightening effect.
Here at ReVive, we’ve been having our own fun adding the cooling globes to our newest facial treatment, the Facial Tropicale! This service is only available for a limited time this summer and features all new products, including the Pevonia Hydra-Boost Papaya Masque and Pevonia BodyRenew Pineapple Coconut Moisturizer. The papaya mask is the perfect way to refresh following sports activities or a day out in the sun because of its soothing, desensitizing properties. It’s also great for repairing the complexion, preventing breakouts, and replenishing the skin’s nutrients. Moreover, you will feel completely relaxed while receiving a fragrant pineapple and coconut massage. This moisturizer not only relieves dryness, irritation, and redness, but also hydrates, brightens, and protects the skin.
Experiencing the cooling, soothing benefits of the Facial Tropicale is like a vacation for your skin.
