Many women have been using Aloe Vera on their skin for years and this ‘secret’ has been passed down through generations. The plant contains many minerals and nutrients that can heal burns, has anti-inflammatory properties and an incredible ability to reduce scars and heal skin wounds. Aloe Vera is one of the best ingredients to have in any skin care product. Since this all-natural ingredient is so commonly used, it’s pretty easy to find in drugstore skin products. Unfortunately, a lot of these can be expensive and filled with chemicals that aren’t good for the skin. If you’re into experimenting with creating your own lotions at home, you might want to consider making an Aloe Vera moisturizer. It can prove to be well worth your time since it’s affordable, easy and natural.
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (high quality is best)
- Gel from 1 large aloe vera leaf
Using the gel straight from the leaf is going to be the best, but not everyone has access to these. If you are not able to find one, purchase some all-natural aloe vera gel from your local drugstore. Read the ingredients on the back to ensure there is only aloe vera in it. A lot of products add things in the bottles.
Once you have both of these ingredients, mix them together. Use this once in the morning and at night, or just once per day. This smells really good and will make your skin soft as well. Some people say it even helps combat their eczema or extreme dry skin. Since eczema lotions can be so expensive, this is a great alternative to consider.
- 1/2 cup purified water
- 3 drops rose essential oil
- 3 drops rosemary essential oil
- 3 drops chamomile essential oil
- 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel
- 1/8 cup witch hazel
Once you have found the ingredients, mix everything together. Once it’s well combined, pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Shake the bottle and then spray on your face so a list mist covers it. Once you have done this, let the spray soak into your skin until it’s dry. Do this daily after washing your skin with an aloe bar of soap. This toner should reduce redness and create smooth skin you can enjoy!
Reduce Pore Size
-50 grams Aloe vera gel
- 50 milliliters water
Remove the peel from one cucumber and chop the cucumber roughly. Combine the cucumber, 50 grams of aloe vera gel and 50 milliliters (a little more than 1.5 ounces) of water in a blender. Mix until the ingredients are smooth and creamy. Smooth the aloe vera cream mixture over your face. Do not rinse it off. Keep the cream on your face overnight. Rinse the cream off of your face in the morning. Wash your face and apply a toner to remove any leftover residue. Let the toner dry and apply a moisturizer as the last step.
All these recipes are great options for putting aloe vera to work. They smell really good and are easy to make at home. You could also bottle these to give as gifts during the holidays. The results you see from using these could end up with you making all your own skin care products! It’s worth trying out to at least see what you can achieve. When a bunch of chemicals aren’t on your skin it will be much healthier.
