Hey guys! Quick little Saturday post for ya.
I have a fun little DIY that you can still use over the next couple months because summer isn’t over yet.
When I was visiting my family in South Carolina last month, mom and I made aloe vera ice cubes. It’s a killer idea, right? What’s better after a sunburn than chilled aloe on your skin?
I actually got a little sun this year, but generally I’m the freak who wears SPF 500 and stays under the umbrella. My mom on the other hand, is a sun lover. Although mom gets all nice and brown while I turn a lovely shade of “beet.”
Anyways, this is easy AF.
AND it’s something fun to show off to your friends.
You can use whatever kind of aloe you like. I used 1/2 gel and 1/2 liquid aloe (only bc I was running low on the gel).
Next time, I’ll put a drop of Lavender into each ice cube. Lavender is great for a sunburn too!
….Also cantaloupe. Yep, eats lot of cantaloupe before going out in the sun and it helps to protect your skin (a little) from the sun.
Aloe Ice Cubes for Sunburn
- Organic Aloe fresh or from the bottle
Squeeze or pour into ice tray. (make sure everyone knows they aren't regular ice cubes)
Freeze 2 hours.
Rub the cubes on ya burnt body.
Make sure people in the family don’t mistake these for regular ice cubes or your green tea ice cubes!
DO NOT forget to put sunscreen on though! Even on overcast days, load up! We don’t want premature age spots.
Also remember to apply to the tops of your ears, your eyelids, any part lines in your hair, and also the tops of your hands and feet!
Happy sunbathing. Xo!
