Cryotherapy 101 With Skin Proud

Another new trend storming over the beauty community is cryotherapy, which is said to help soothe and hydrate skin and reduce redness.

Skin Proud’s Consultant and Certified Dermatologist, Dr Marisa Garshick, has a derm-approved cryotherapy buy for under $37.

“Cryotherapy can be soothing on the skin and have a depuffing effect, helping to tighten the overall appearance of the skin. Additionally, it helps reduce inflammation and redness, which can also help to reduce blemishes,” said Garshick.

Cryotherapy also helps promote better absorption of other skincare products. When the capillaries restrict, it causes a pulling effect, drawing subsequent products in.

Cold temperatures shrink blood vessels, which helps to reduce swelling and puffiness. Generally, the undereye area is a common place for skin cryotherapy to reduce undereye bags.

“Applying ice to the skin or keeping certain products cool will have an immediate depuffing and soothing effect on the skin. It can help to reduce redness by vasoconstricting the blood vessels.”

The Skin Proud Frozen Over cryotherapy gel moisturiser is a unique cooling skincare product designed to hydrate and cool skin. It depuffs skin and improves circulation.

It is also infused with anti-inflammatory aloe vera extract to calm and soften skin, and the lemon extract works to brighten and treat hyperpigmentation.

The product can be used as a gel or frozen for a slush-like texture and is suitable for most skin types.
