5 Uses Of Aloe Vera For A Beautiful You
Aloe vera was referred as ‘Wand of the heaven' by the ancient Greeks, and the spiky leaved plant is sure living up to its nickname!
Here's how you can put this heavenly plant to some use on a daily basis.
Some makeup removers tend to have harmful chemicals that could have a weird reaction on your skin. However, you need to get rid of that gorgeous smoky eye makeup you spent an hour on, before you go to bed. Instead of spending so much on a perfect makeup remover that is made up of ‘natural ingredients', make use of this blessing in disguise! Just apply some aloe vera gel on your eyes and wipe it away with a cotton ball. Tada! Off comes that makeup.
Use pure aloe as a shaving cream for a nice close shave and also to moisturize your skin. This is a great alternative for all you sexy ladies with sensitive skin.
An Alternative Face Wash
Some face washes tend to make your skin really dry causing it to turn flaky. Try this super easy DIY aloe face wash. Take 1 tablespoon of pure aloe, mix it well with 1 teaspoon of almond oil and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Let the mixture rest on your face before you rinse it off. Voila! Say hello to a silky smooth face!
Reduces Hair Fall
Aloe vera's composition is similar to that of Keratin. Before you ask, Keratin is the primary protein of hair, which is why you hear a lot of shampoo advertisements using the word Keratin so often.
Using aloe in a hair mask can give you really bouncy and soft locks!
Aloe vera tastes really bitter unless mixed with something sweet to neutralize its taste. What you can do is, remove the gel and dice the leaves into small pieces, blend it well with a fruit which is considerably sweet. If you don't want to mix it with a fruit, put some honey in it and it will do just the trick.
These are some super cool uses of aloe vera to use on a daily basis. Now, all you need to do is get an aloe vera plant from the closest gardening shop.
