To beat the heat on a scorching summer day or to soothe your skin following a steam facial, ice cubes offer a multitude of skincare advantages. Interestingly, applying an ice cube before your makeup routine can lead to improved application and prolonged makeup longevity.
Conversely, the humble potato is a treasure trove of skin-nourishing vitamins and nutrients, including vitamin B, C, zinc, niacin, and iron. The application of potato juice to marks, scars, and blemishes can gradually aid in their lightening and fading. Instead of the hassle of cutting a fresh potato and extracting its juice each time, consider making a potato ice cube for radiant skin. Here’s a simple method to create one:
- One large potato
- 5 tablespoons of milk
- 3-5 drops of lemon essential oil (an additional skin-brightening element that also imparts a pleasant fragrance to your potato ice cube)
Step 01: Begin by cutting the potato into small pieces and blending them into a pulp.
Step 02: Strain the potato juice into a bowl and incorporate the milk, ensuring a thorough mixture.
Step 03: Add a few drops of lemon essential oil to the mixture.
Step 04: Pour this well-blended concoction into an ice cube tray and place it in the freezer.
How to Use:
Step 01: Take a single ice cube and wrap it in a clean, thin cloth or handkerchief.
Step 02: Gently massage your face with the potato ice cube. Ensure that your face is thoroughly cleansed before this step.
Step 03: Allow the ice cube to rest on your face for a minimum of five minutes, then rinse your face with plain water.
Step 04: Use one ice cube daily, and you should start noticing visible improvements in about 15 days. Your skin will thank you for the rejuvenation
