Moisturizer is an inevitable part of our daily skin routine something that we can’t skip no matter what. Regardless of what beauty routine we follow what products we use what our skin type is we All start by applying our daily Moisturizer.So today I’m doing this DIY on How to Use Aloe Vera on Face to can make our daily moisturizer 1000 times more effective with infusing aloe vera in it.
Aloe Vera on Face Benefits
Aloe vera if described in one line is THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH, the miracle plant, the elixir of youth. Even the Egyptian queen, Cleopatra, and Nefertiti-considered as the goddess of beauty, used aloe vera to keep their beauty intact.
It is the only thing that can be absorbed through all seven layers of skin. It is absolutely loaded with goodness and reduces wrinkles, fine lines, minimizes scars, tightens skin, improves the texture, gives you that glow from within, increases your collagen production, improves elasticity, reduces acne and finishes them overtime, reduces dark circles, spots, pimple marks, reduces irrigations, has anti-inflammatory properties and the list is endless!
Not only this it contains 20 of the 22 amino acids, contains 20 minerals including magnesium, zinc, calcium, Vitamins A, B, C, E, folic acid, and 200 active ingredients! WOW! 🙂 You have to be absolutely insane if you don’t try this one. (Okay I feel I am on a Sugar high right now, lol).You can never get soooooo much out of one thing! According to scientists with the Department of Dermatology of the Seoul National University Boramae Hospital in Seoul Korea, taking a small amount of Aloe Vera gel on a daily basis can significantly improve skin elasticity and reduce wrinkles.
There is one thing about Aloe vera it is no doubt expensive, but at the same time, it’s terribly easy to grow at home. It’s a plant of the cactus family and survives with minimum water so I would strongly recommend you to use the fresh Aloe vera instead of the bottled gel.
Take a piece of Aloe vera and cut/ break it into half and slice it.
Once u have sliced an aloe vera leaf into two halves you will see something like a jelly!You need to scrape away this jelly with your fingers or a spoon until it becomes all gooey and slimy.Once you get all the slime off, place on your palm of your hand and mix two-three drops of your daily moisturizer in it.
Go ahead and slather your face with it rubbing in a circular motion like you do with your moisturizer and you are done.
Now let the goodness seep into your skin and reap the benefits.
However, there is one tip that I would like to give – if you have oily skin you can totally skip out the moisturizer and just use Aloe Vera gel, but if you have dry skin you should probably go heavy on the moisturizer and add around 7-8 drops. For people who have the normal skin, they need to add only a very small amount of it.
Also, you should do this about half an hour before you step out of your house so that it settles really well and your skin looks as if you never really applied anything else except your moisturizer.
Aloe vera has no smell of its own (only a faint leafy smell) so you won’t smell bad after applying it.If you need to put on makeup on top of it you can do so easily, it will act as a shield between your skin and the harmful makeup so either way it’s a win-win situation.Now, this is something that I do absolutely daily and I hope you would too…start today! Believe me, your skin will thank you for it!
NOTE: When I say daily moisturizer, don’t mix it up with moisturizers with very heavy chemically active ingredients. If your moisturizer is like that, in the evening when you wash your face, apply this gel with any neutral simple face moisturizer.
