Ice also can be used as a topical anesthetic on certain places of the body.

The frozen cucumber mask: Chop 2 cucumbers then drain the juice from it. Add an equal quantity of the rose water which is preferable to be boiled then to be cooled completely before being used. The most important thing is to mix the cucumber together with boiled rosewater and put in the ice cubes box, then pass the ice cube on your face till it melts completely and do not forget to pass it on your neck also Apply on the eyelid and on the area under your eyes to remove the dark circles. It also helps in reducing the eye swellings which is as a result of liquid accumulation in that area.

How to give yourself an 'ice cube facial': Simply massage your face with ice cubes for a minute or two before bed. Wrap the cubes in a paper towel or a tissue, because applying them directly to your skin can cause delicate blood vessels to break.
