As the time passes by, skin tends to lose its elasticity. It will retain its youthfulness if the skin is well taken care of but in case, you did not take care earlier, use this mask to regain that lost elasticity of skin. Aloe vera moisturizes the skin and exfoliates it to get rid of dead cells, resulting in healthier skin.

Aloe vera is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agents, which can help you reduce acne and control oil. It also helps in speeding up the healing process for acne and prevents scarring.

Precautionary Measures:

People are sensitive to lemon so make sure you go through a patch test first. Another important factor about using lemon is regarding the sensitivity it causes to the sun. Use a sunblock before stepping out into sun.

*However, Sunblock is recommended for all skin types. If you are looking for organic and lab tested reasonably priced sunblock, Cube Organics has to offer a good one.

Moisturizes Skin:

Aloe vera gel can be directly applied on to your face by extracting the fresh one from its leaf. It gives off equal results.

  • Get an aloe vera leaf if you have plant at home. Otherwise, there are companies providing aloe vera leaves and extracted gel preserved in containers.
  • Extract the gel from aloe vera leave by peeling it off. Scoop out the gel and apply.
  • Gently with slight pressure, massage your face with the gel for 5 minutes. You can do it daily.

Aloe vera has been used on areas affected with sunburn since centuries. It contains a lot of nutritional properties and antioxidants that helps the skin to be able to prevent the moisture from escaping, resulting in healing the sunburns quickly and effectively.

  • Heals Insect Bites and External Wounds:

Aloe vera gel is a great component as a topical treatment for small cuts, insect bites and bruises. You can additionally use it as an aftershave lotion to soothe irritated skin.

Due to anti-inflammatory properties of aloe vera, it is a great ingredient to treat insect bites and wounds.

  • Reduces Stretch Marks:

Due to pregnancy or obesity, skin stretches resulting into marks due to the lost elasticity. Sometimes, people tend to lose confidence because of these marks.

Preparation:

Get equal quantities of pure coconut oil and pure aloe vera gel. Mix them together and apply twice a day on areas where you have stretch marks. 40 minutes before shower and every night before you go to sleep.

Additional Note:

Please do conduct a patch test before you read/ listen or watch any home remedy before final/ full application to any part of your body because it can cause issues.

Everything you see online is not worthy enough to try. Learn to authenticate pages and channels for skin, hair and body care to make sure you do not suffer in any way.

Though natural products can never cause harm and the ones I share are tested but personally, I have received complains by girls with some serious cases by watching any random home remedy on youtube and online. It makes me sad how people suffer due to lack of knowledge. Please, do a patch test of every mask you see online or get to know from friends and family.
