Milk Ice Cubes For Your Face
MILK !! But for your face.
That’s right. Today I’m going to introduce you to a little trick that skincare gurus are OBSESSED with. Sonya Dakar actually taught me this. She’s a celebrity skincare expert with her own line ( which is amazing ) & recently she came on the podcast to talk about how she built an empire, how to keep your youthful skin & hot celeb beauty secrets.
So anyway, she shared this tip & as always I can’t not share it with you.
In this post, you’ll find out how to turn some simple, milky ice cubes into your new favorite skincare step.
Pores are so pesky & annoying. They can get so big, especially if your skin is dirty. After much research, it turns out that milk ice cubes really do shrink your pores. These are going to brighten the skin & you all dewy & glassy AF.

So How The Fuck Do you Make Milk Ice Cubes?
Take a big bowl & mix a cup of cow’s milk & a cup of whole coconut milk. Milk has lactic acid that removes dead skin cells and provides a natural glow to the skin. Mix it well then pour it into a cute, pink ice cube tray & freeze it overnight. So basically it’s milk ice cubes.
In the morning, wake up & enjoy a refreshing icy situation. I feel the healthy glow. You guys know I love ice on my face so it’s no surprise I’ve done this a million times.
You can also do this any time before bed. Cleanse, applying an ice cube on your face in a circular motion until it’s used up ( I always have a paper towel in hand ), rinse it off with water & your skin is tight & ready to go. I’m a big fan of heating up to cool down so I’ll use the Dr. Dennis Gross steamer then cool my skin down with a milk ice cube.
If milk cube isn’t for you, you can use aloe vera or green tea – or just use a plain ice cube. Rub an ice cube on your skin. Ice cube rapidly constricts blood vessels so you’ll still get tons of pore shrinking & glowing skin benefits. It’s the key to product absorption & your makeup will loook flawless if you give yourself a little ice cube facial before you apply foundation.
And of course if you love tools, you can never go wrong with an ice roller. I hope this skin care post brings you value & you try these milk ice cubes on your face.
Peace, love & ice.
