Frozen Aloe Vera Cubes For Sunburned Skin

2 Materials
15 Minutes
Even if you apply sunscreen often, sunburned skin can still happen. Coolness will help soothe your skin, but you should never apply ice to your skin. These frozen aloe vera cubes will help soothe your skin instead.
This is a very easy DIY project, but you should plan ahead. If you know you'll be going to the pool or will be out in the sun, make this before you head out for the day.
I used green aloe vera, but you could also use the clear if you're worried about it staining your clothes. I used a soap mold, but a ice cube tray will also work. I prefer the smaller size because they do melt quickly, so this means less mess. I can always use two or more cubes if I need to.

After you fill the mold with aloe vera, use a toothpick or a butter knife to get out air bubbles. Then place in the freezer for half an hour.
Once they are frozen, pop them out and store in a bag in the freezer until you need them.

They are messy to use, but they feel so good on sunburned skin. For more information, visit my blog.
