The best way to cool down on a hot summer afternoon is by enjoying a Popsicle of your favourite flavour. While your body is being treated to cold popsicles and coconut water, your skin bears the maximum brunt this season due to the harsh sun rays. Ice cubes work wonders on puffy eyes, acne and sunburnt skin. This summer let’s freeze some delicious ice cubes that will work wonder on your skin.
Cucumber and honey ice cleanser
Have you ever tried a frozen facial scrub? Now is the perfect time to do so! Other than being naturally cool, cucumbers also cleanse and moisturise the skin. Add some lemon juice and honey to cucumber puree pour the mixture to an ice tray and freeze. Use the icy slush to gently exfoliate your face and neck for 5-10 minutes and rinse off.
Green tea ice cubes
Antioxidant rich iced tea not only works wonders for your body but also for your skin. Instead of applying ice cubes and tea bags on your puffy eyes separately how about using green tea ice cubes? Simply prepare green the way you normally do, transfer it to an ice tray and let freeze. Use anytime you want!
Rose water ice facial
You know how we advise carrying rose water in your bag during summers to keep your skin fresh and hydrated? When you are at home try this instant rose water facial instead. Either freeze some store bought rose water or boil some rose petals in water and freeze it for a more natural approach. This keeps your skin soft and prevents your skin from looking greasy.
Aloe vera soothers
Nothing soothes skin in summer better than some cool aloe vera gel. Scoop the gel out of a big aloe vera leaf add a little amount of water to help it freeze faster. Rub these aloe vera soothers after spending time out in the sun to soothe and calm your skin. This way your skin gets all the benefits of aloe and it looks refreshing within minutes.
