Need to cool down? Try the Minty Ice Cube Facial.
The ice cube delivers a cooling sensation along with peppermint oil to soothe irritated skin. Combine with mint leaves, it balances excess oiliness and shrink down your pores. Lastly, aloe vera gel helps restore hydration back to the skin. So if you suffer from oily skin, big pores, dull or irritated skin – you need this facial ASAP!
We’re going to use peppermint essential oil in this DIY recipe, but it must be diluted in another carrier oil before use. I’m using sweet almond oil for this purpose, but you can use whatever vegetable oil that is available at home.
dilution: 1 drop of peppermint essential oil, 1 tsp. sweet almond oil
- 0,5 tsp. diluted peppermint oil
- mint leaves
- 3 tsp. cold water
- 3 tsp. aloe vera gel
Remember, you want the facial mixture to be thick, not too runny.
Take the ice cubes out and leave it in the room temperature for 10-15 minutes.
Take one out for each use and put the rest back in the freezer.
Rub the Minty Ice Cube all over your face and leave on until the cooling sensation is gone.
Rinse with cool water.
You can store the Minty Ice Cubes in the freezer for a month.
