So I was sitting at my vanity one night, examining my skin while watching Game of Thrones (so sad season 6 is over–brb crying). I got really annoyed with my skin because it was being really finicky and felt irritated. Plus, Daenerys has gorgeous skin so I was definitely feeling a little jelly. I went down to the fridge and decided to make a DIY skincare concoction, and let me tell you I’m really loving this. I have noticed my skin looks brighter, smoother, and my couple mountainous pimples have receded– hooray!

Strawberries are really good for the skin– even topically. They contain antioxidants, provide UV protection, act as a natural exfoliant, and will help fade dark spots and scarring because of their natural lightening properties. I like to add milk because it contains lactic acid (for natural exfoliation), aids in lightening dark spots, and helps soothe the skin.

Why did I choose to blend it all up and turn them into ice cubes? Maybe it was the fact that I was watching Jon Snow lying in some ice, but in actuality it is because ice is good for the skin. It is not only cooling, but it is refreshing, helps tighten pores, and is all around good if you have acne.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 10-12 strawberries
  • 8-9 tbsp milk
  • Ice tray
  • Sieve
  • Blender

Simply wash up the strawberries, cut off the green tops, and chuck it all into the blender. Then add the milk (or filtered water if you prefer), and blend away until you have a runny consistency. I ran it through a sieve to get any strawberry chunks/seeds out of there, and then spooned it all into an ice tray and let it freeze. This amount made enough for one ice tray, but you can definitely adjust how many strawberries and how much milk you want to use. Just make sure the consistency is runny and not thick.

I personally love to use this ice on my face in the morning and give my skin a little facial massage for a few minutes then wash off the residue. It’s a great way to pamper your skin even if it is just for a few minutes! Applying ice directly on the skin can have adverse effects so I like to wrap one up in a thin muslin cloth that way you’re still getting the benefit of the strawberries and milk without breaking any delicate capillaries.

  • I am so sad that GoT is over, now we have to wait almost a year for new season! I love diy masks, but I’ve never done ice ones. Since it is summer and warm outside, there’s no excuse for not making some of these :)

    • I cannot wait for next season!! I’m going to need them to make two seasons a year haha. I hope you give this a try :)

  • I’m just about to watch the GoT finale now. I’m so excited and anxious and a whole lot of other emotions lol. I’ve made fruit infused ice cubes for drinks before, but never for my face! Thanks for the idea ;)
