USES OF ALOE VERA
1. It brightens the skin.
Aloe Vera is one of the best herbal plants for treatment of the skin. The good news is that this plant can work on any skin type. You only need to add a few drops of the Aloe Vera extract to rose water, stir till the mixture is well blended and apply the solution on your face. Gently spread the solution on your cheeks, the forehead and around your eyes. Ensure that the mixture does not get into your eyes as it will result in itching. Keep rubbing the mixture for about three minutes, to get rid of all the dead skin cells. Stop rubbing and let the aloe Vera mix settle on your face for about 15 to 20 minutes. Use cold water when rinsing or use a cleanser. Follow this routine once every week for ultimate results.
2. Apply to eliminate skin rash.
Having a skin rash can be annoying and irritating. People with sensitive skin regularly get skin rash or experience redness on the skin. The regular skin irritations may force one to try out different beauty products.
However, with the use of Aloe Vera, you can completely eliminate the problem. Just mix cucumber juice, yogurt, and Aloe Vera gel to make a thick paste. Gently massage your face with this mixture, and let it lay on the face for about 15 minutes. Later on, rinse with cold water and dry your face with a clean towel.
3. Acts as an anti-aging agent.
Aloe Vera is among the most recommended skin cleansers today. The plant is great for minimizing pores and removing acne and black spots. The Aloe Vera stem is the most effective when eliminating pimples.
Just take the stem of the plant and put it in boiling water. When completely blended, add a few drops of natural honey and ensure that the honey has completely dissolved in the hot water. Softly apply the paste on your face. Pay attention to the area of the skin with the acne. Let it settle for 15 minutes and remove the paste by washing with cold water.
4. Eliminates Sunburns.
Sunburns are common on the skin, especially during hot seasons. Some sunburns tend to be severe, leading to the peeling off of the skin or causing blistering.
Our skins are sensitive and overexposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause damage. To prevent sunburns, make Aloe Vera juice and add a few drops of lemon juice. Soak in a clean piece of cloth or cotton in the liquid and slowly rub it your skin. Let the skin absorb the mixture for about ten minutes and later on rinse with lukewarm water. Doing this will have your skin moisturized and protected from the sun when you are out.
