Upgrade Your Fun in the Sun
A cool way to elevate your summer skin care routine.
When you're getting ready to enjoy a little beach or picnic time, add this skin care hack that's great for soothing icky sunburns and itchy bug bites. Use your ice cube tray to make aloe vera ice cubes! They soothe summer sunburn naturally.
Aloe vera ice cubes are super simple to make. Just fill up an ice cube tray with aloe vera gel. The gel contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C and anti-inflammatory properties that soothe irritated or itchy skin. You can find it at your local drugstore or in the health and beauty aisle at the supermarket. Just be sure to select one that's top ingredient is aloe and contains no alcohol.
Freeze the tray for at least 2 hours or overnight and then transfer the cubes to a ziptop freezer bag. Be sure to label the bag "DO NOT EAT" so there's no confusion in the beach cooler. Now you're ready to pack them in the cooler for your next outdoor adventure.
