Cool your body and quench your skin with these nutrient-packed pops…

Ah, popsicles. The kid-time favorite is reminiscent of summer picnics, sandy days at the beach and happiness dripping down your chin.

To get started, we turned to our friends at Vital Proteins, the makers of skin-boosting Beauty Waters, for some recipes filled with antioxidant-rich fruits, edible flowers and other complexion-enhancing picks. Pop in the freezer and say hello to glowy skin.
