welcome to HealthcareMagic
Applying ice on face will make the blackheads temporarily hard to remove because below the black head there is a white oily collection that will get condensed after applying ice.So if you need to remove black heads then you can take steam ;it will make black heads come out easily.Take steam instead of ice it will help better.
Better consult a doctor for treatment if the pimples are more or they are infected.
