Most of us simply throw them into a delicious drink on a hot summer’s day. Yet ice cubes actually have many more uses beyond keeping your lemonade cool. As the following 4 examples show, you can even use ice cubes to improve your overall well-being.
1. Combatting belly fat
- 3 tbsp horsetail
- 1 bunch rosemary
- 3 tbsp coffee
- 1 lb green tea or mate
- 17 fl oz water
- After boiling the ingredients listed above for 15 minutes, leave everything to cool. Next, you can freeze the mixture in an ice cube tray.
- Empty the ice cubes into a plastic bag and massage your stomach in a circular motion. The whole process should take 15 minutes with three short breaks.
2. Combatting wrinkles
By stimulating your blood circulation, ice can reduce wrinkles or slow down their appearance. To do so, massage your face with an ice pack every day after getting up.

Reduce swelling by wrapping several ice cubes in a napkin and massaging the area around your eyes for two minutes.
