Ice Facial for a Hot day

Homemade ice facial made from Vitamin E oil and Green Tea

It's a hot day Sunday today and nothing's better than to have your own ice facial during a weather like this! It's good to soothe down the pimples (especially the red ones) and minimizing pore size.

I love making homemade treatment and remedies. You can pretty much make use of your kitchen ingredients without forking more money for facial treatments. And best of all, you don't need to worry about having a freak allergic reaction cos these stuff are made from natural ingredients.

Credit to Michelle Phan for the inspiring tutorial.

All you need for this awesome ice facials are. Ingredients are based on 1 tray of ice facials;
  1. Green tea bag
  2. 4-5 tablets of Vitamin E
  3. Toothpick (depending on the ice tray)
  4. Ice cube tray
Soak the green tea bag in water (not too hot, not too cold) for about 1 minute. Next, prick the vitamin E tablet with one of the toothpicks and squeeze in the goodness in the green tea. In the video, Ms Phan kinda skipped the step when she emptied out the green tea content. So for this, you have to rip open the tea bags to get the tea leaves residue. Then pour everything in the tray and transfer the tray in the freezer for about 1 hour plus, depending how cool it gets. After that, slowly poke the toothpicks in the ice. And cool it again for a good 3-4 hours.

Some sticks got a bit distorted cos I poke the ice too soon. But hey, it's cool!

Oooh, icey!

Results: For a sec, it took a bit to get used to at the electrifying icy sensation of the ice, but after that I feel so heavenly refreshed, especially in the hot weather. Get a towel with you cos the ice will melt. My face feels so clean and smooth from the 'ice glide'. So nice that I just rinse my face with water. Definitely gonna be my weekly thing now! Yeaaahhh!

Some say this is good to heal the scars, which can be true cos there is Vitamin E in the content. OMG! I'm so loving this!

  4. Scared of the smell is it? I had that experience with cod liver oil. Ewww~ But i found that vitamin E oil is less smelly compared to evening primrose oil.
