So we’ve recently stumbled upon this AMAZING potato cucumber ice cubes recipe that gets rid of dark spots and we’re in love! This super easy to make recipe will not only cool irritated skin and get rid of dark circles, but will also remove dark spots, discoloration, and skin stains. The main ingredients in the potato cucumber ice cubes are potato and cucumbers (obviously) which are one of the best natural ingredients you can use to cure dark spots.
Potato Cucumber Ice Cubes
Why This works:
Potatoes remove toxins directly from the skin and are also packed with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals which all aid in removing dark spots and getting rid of dark circles. This is why potatoes are one of the most beneficial vegetables in curing dark spots and dark circles and have been for hundreds of years.
Cucumbers are mainly water and add much needed hydration to dry, parched skin. One of the leading causes of dark circles and dark spots is a lack of moisture, therefore cucumbers pack skin full of moisture as well as other beneficial vitamins and minerals.
Lemon juice is a natural lightener because of the amount of acidity it contains.
- 1 small-medium potato
- 1 small cucumber
- lemon juice
- ice cube tray
- Peel the potato and grate it.
- Add your grated potato to a blender or food processor, and add in your cucumber and the juice from a lemon.
- Depending on the size of your potato, you may need less cucumber or more – the consistency should be slushy-like.
- Pour your mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze for 5-6 hours or until hardened.
How to Use the Potato Cucumber Ice Cubes:
Simply pop out a potato cucumber ice cube and rub it over the affected area, wherever you may have dark spots. These ice cubes are also amazing for dark circles! Basically, you can rub the ice cubes all over the face and neck as the cooling feeling will calm irritated skin, while the ingredients will heal, cure dark spots, and leave you with the most perfect skin you’ve ever had!
Rub the ice cube for 1-2 minutes and dispose. Rinse skin with warm water and pat dry. You can use these cubes once or twice a day every day, and within 3-4 days you should notice your dark spots getting lighter and lighter. Keep using until dark spots are no longer present.
