Ahhhhh.....where do I start bragging about this unbelievable magical plant?
You guessed it right: Aloe Vera.
Aloe Vera Gel is the gel-like substance that gets extracted by cutting this plant in half. There are many ways in which you can get your hands on some of this gel. One of the most popular ways is to actually grow the plant at home and take the gel from the plant itself. Another way is to go to an all-natural beauty store like El Attar, Imtenan, Nefertari or even Secrets of Nature- all Egyptian brands- and buy the bottled ones.
Here is the 9 different ways you can incorporate this gel in your beauty routine:
1) Eyebrow and Eyelashes Food:
If you are suffering from loss of eyebrow hair, then applying aloevera gel mixed with castor oil will definitely help with the growing process. Works with the eyelashes too.
2) Makeup Primer:
If you can't get your hand on a good primer, Aloe Vera Gel will ensure makeup will stay on your face for a long time. Apply a thin layer before makeup and then apply makeup normally.
3) Shaving Cream:
Use it instead of your shaving cream to help sooth your skin while removing your hair in one go.
4) Skin burns:
Did you burn yourself while cooking or did you have a sun-burn? Aloe vera gel is to your rescue.
5) Facial Washes:
Mix Aloe Vera Gel with some honey and wash your face with it. Glowing!
Use the gel as a base to any face or body exfoliator. Mix some coconut flakes with some aloe vera gel and scrub your day off.
7) Makeup Fixing Spray:
Mix 1/2 aloe vera gel with 1/2 rose water and give your face a quick spray after you apply makeup to keep makeup intact.
8) Facial Toner:
Mix aloe vera gel with lemon juice and apply as a toner before moisturiser.
9) Cracked feet:
Mix some aloe vera gel with some sweet almond oil and give your cracked feet a massage.
