DIY Beauty with Aloe Vera

Aloe plants have soothing and antibacterial properties. Once applied, it releases natural vitamins and enzymes into the skin to produce a deep moisturizing effect that restores skin’s balance. Its many uses and benefits for the hair and skin are widely known.

To maximize the benefits of aloe vera, experts recommend it to be used for two to three times a week. Applying lotion enhanced with aloe vera to the affected area of the skin and massaging it thoroughly can ensure fully-rejuvenated skin. Whenever your skin feels dry or irritated, apply aloe vera. For dry and itchy scalp, an aloe vera packed shampoo can also be of help. 

I personally never realized that alovera had such benefits until recently. But since I did, I have incorperated it into my skin care regiment. Most of the time, I used it alone on my face, but other times I prepare a mask which I am able to apply on my face and hair.
