All you needed are the juices of potato, lemon and pomegranate. When you have extracted the juices and sieved them, mix them all together, the lemon juice being slightly less in proportion. Put them in the freezer, and take them out after at least two days. The other thing to keep in mind is that unlike ice, potato ice cubes cannot be applied directly to the skin for fear of some irritation. So, as a safety net, put the cubes in a handkerchief and then apply that gently on the face, by dabbing it. Do not forget to cover the neck region either. One cube should be enough for one day. You can do it once every day, for as long as the cubes last.

Remember to wash your face with cold water after you are done dabbing. So, will you be giving it a try?
