Being in show biz often entails long hours of shoots. That obviously involves HD cameras that can catch every pore, blemish, and the finest of lines, so it's no wonder that celebrities' skincare routines are so intensive! Case in point: Maja Salvador's quick hack for a poreless skin finish on-cam.
In her skincare vlog, Maja has previously shared that she runs a chilled ice roller under her eyes in the morning to depuff. She also loves it before beginning a busy day because the cooling effect really helps her fight drowsiness. But whenever she has a shoot, Maja says that instead of just her eyes, she ice-rolls her entire face to help "tighten" her pores!
If you're curious about the perks of this technique, Maja explains that the benefits behind ice rolling is similar to our skin's reaction when exposed to a colder climate–her pores naturally "compress," creating a tighter and firmer look. That's not all—the massaging she does combined with the cold tool also helps soothe irritated skin and relaxes muscle tension by stimulating lymphatic drainage and blood flow. Another great thing about it? It's something you can mindlessly do while watching Netflix, or even while eating a snack!
That said, if you don't have an ice roller, you can cop Kathryn Bernardo's cold face towel trick instead (more on that here)! But in case you want to shop your own ice roller, here are some picks to consider:
1. Dr. Beauty Magic Ice Globes

This dual-ended eye massage tool allows you to choose a side that fits perfectly on every corner of your face. Use it to blend in your eye cream or moisturizer to help your skin absorb them better while depuffing.
