Current evidence shows that the way for you to stay hot may mean getting cool Freezing, in fact, with cryobeauty topical technology. Presently, your go-to beauty routine may include oils, scrubs, masks, or even a jade roller. On top of this, how about going cold for your beauty routine? We show you how to get hot by staying cool.
Cryotherapy essentially exposes your body to freezing temperatures. The treatment may help you with joint pain, inflammation, weight loss, anxiety, and depression. While this may seem futuristic, ancient traditions influenced the growing cryotherapy trend. Dating back to 3500 B.C., The Edwin Smith Papyrus references using cold for therapy.
Moving forward to our times, the idea of cooling down for healing makes total sense. If you’ve ever got injured, you probably grabbed an ice pack to help reduce swelling, puffiness, and pain. Pop culture often uses “beef bandage” as a known trope. Do you remember one of those film characters putting a cold steak on the face after a black eye? So, let’s get serious: a practical, high-tech beauty regimen works without a steak on the face!
In the past, only luxury spas and wellness centers offered advanced technology using cryo science, such as cryochambers and cryobeauty facials. Here comes the good news for you. Recent developments featuring the benefits of cold therapy are making their way into at-home, products. You can now try what once only professional athletes, models, actors, and the rich and famous could use.
We have put together some of our favorite products for you. They take the tried-and-true method of cryotherapy and merge it with the latest science to elevate your at-home beauty routines.

You can use it on your wet hair before a blowout to make styling easier. Or on dry hair after a blowout to replenish moisture or help refresh and hydrate when restyling.
