We know, babe – in the middle of a Canadian winter, the last thing you want to do is find more ways to feel… cold.
But what if we told you it was the remedy to pretty much all of your skin woes — the winter ones, included?
This season, we introduced our TGR community to the DermaTech Cold Therapy Ice Facial Roller, and the impact it has on the health of your skin (and everything underneath it!) is honestly kind of bananas for a product that can fit in your makeup bag.
Here’s the deal:
This ice roller was designed to mimic the effects of professional cryotherapy facials, meaning you can bring the benefits of this pro treatment into your self-care routine on the daily.
Wait, wait, wait… a high-quality, high-results spa treatment from the comfort of your home?
Colour us intrigued.
There are a handful of major benefits to incorporating cold therapy into your skincare routine, but there are three in particular that have been total game-changers for us at TGR:
The Depuff is REAL.
A few too many glasses of red wine on Friday night?
Went a little hard in the soy sauce at dinner?
Rough sleep, resulting in under eye swelling?
Dealing with some hormonal bloating?
Whatever the culprit, we’ve ALL woken up to facial inflammation and reached for the first at-home remedy we could find — think cucumber slices, ice cubes, chugging gallons of lemon water…
This ice roller provides a catch-all remedy, sitting pretty in your fridge or freezer, ready to roll exactly when you need it for visibly tighter (and totally snatched!) skin.
No matter the weather outside, our new morning routine will be including a cold therapy session until further notice.
Waking up puffy, red, uneven, pores-galore — life is unpredictable enough without navigating new skin concerns every five minutes. We love that the DermaTech Ice Facial Roller improves blood oxygen and circulation while boosting lymphatic drainage, making it a one-stop solution for all of the above.
Can’t seem to shake that morning drowsiness? We feel you. No matter how well you rest at night, it can be hard to shift ourselves out of that sleepy energy before the coffee hits. Enter: Cold Therapy. While this may not be a skin-related solution, we’re obsessed with how fresh and energized the process of ice rolling makes us feel. It requires a bit of foresight to make sure it’s nice and chilly, so we pop it in the fridge or freezer before bed so that it’s all set for the morning. As a bonus, the DermaTech Cold Therapy Ice Facial Roller stays cold for up to 2 hours, so you can also keep it at your desk for a mid-morning refresh!
Toronto-based DermaTech was built on a desire to have affordable spa-like sessions from the comfort of your home. Their mission is to elevate your skincare with high-quality products that are easy to use (and actually work). We’ve been so proud to partner with DermaTech on multiple TGR seasons, and love the way they emphasize simplicity, ease, and effectiveness with all of their products.
