Potato Cucumber Ice Cubes

Why This works:

Potatoes are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals which make them incredibly efficient in removing the toxins from the skin. Moreover, potatoes will help you to get rid of the awful dark spots from your skin.

Cucumbers mainly are consisted of water and are perfect for hydration of dry and parched skin. Dermatologists explain that lack of moisture is one of the main causes of dark circles and dark spots and therefore, cucumbers are the ingredient you need. This veggie will hydrate your skin and also will provide other beneficial vitamins and minerals.

Lemon juice is acidic and it is one of the most efficient natural lighteners.

You’ll Need:

  • 1 potato (small/ medium)
  • 1 cucumber (small)
  • 1 lemon (the juice from it)
  • ice cube tray


First of all, rinse the potato and cucumber well. Then, peel the potato and then grate it. In a blender or food processor add the grated potato, cucumber and lemon juice. Blend until you get a homogenous, slushy-like consistency.

Next step is to pour the mixture in an ice cube tray and place it in freezer for 5-6 hours or until the mixture is hardened

How to Use the Potato Cucumber Ice Cubes:

The procedure is super simple: pop-out one potato-cucumber ice cube and rub it over the affected skin area for 1-2 minutes and dispose. After that, you should rinse off your skin with lukewarm water and pat dry.

In addition to that, you can use the ice-cubes for dark circles. In fact, you can rub your face, neck with the ice-cubes and thus soothe and cool the irritated skin.
