Ideal for summer: glowing skin with aloe vera ice cubes!

Summer days may give us the much-needed dose of sunshine, but our skin reacts differently!

Sun, humidity, and the occasional glass of white wine are not great friends of skin, often resulting in a puffy morning face.

Luckily, there is a remedy. And you can make it yourself!

 

Aloe Vera has long been known for its refreshing, de-puffing, antioxidant, and calming benefits. And nothing tops an ice cube to tone the skin and close open pores. But what if you could combine the two?

Yes, aloe vera ice cubes are a thing!

To make your own you will need an aloe vera leaf, a grater, and an ice-cube tray.

Just carefully slice the aloe leaf, and grate the insides to extract the gel. Pour the gel into the ice-cube tray and freeze for a could of hours. You can use the surplus gel as a face mask.

You can use these cubes to massage the face and neck for a much-needed TLC in the mornings. Remember to use a muslin cloth to prevent the ice cube from "burning the skin", unless you are used to the cold treatment.
