Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was seen on Instagram on Monday partaking in the latest social media trend of dunking your face in ice water for health and beauty reasons.
In her Instagram story, Ocasio-Cortez wrote: “Ok so no lie I have been very very stressed out lately and today I found myself staying in a stressful mental pattern that was just creating more stress for myself. I wanted to interrupt that.”
“Riley and I read previously that dunking your face in a bowl of ice water can be a way of redirecting by forcing your body to top a kind of reset of your parasympathetic nervous system, so I’m going to try it,” she continued, with a fingers crossed emoji.
Ocasio-Cortez is seen in her kitchen in front of a bowl of water that previously had ice in it, with boyfriend Riley Roberts filming.
“And yes my kitchen is messy today, deal with it,” Ocasio-Cortez added as she dunked her face.
