Aloe vera for the face : Beauty Hacks

Treats Sunburn: Treating sunburns is a common known property of aloe vera gel. It has powerful healing effects and acts as a protective layer on your skin. It can also be used to treat small cuts.

Moisturize: Science shows that aloe can penetrate the epidermis (skin’s outermost layer) four times more efficiently than water. This makes is super-effective at improving hydration, without clogging the pores or leaving skin greasy.

Sensitive skin: Anyone who’s ever suffered from sensitive skin knows that throwing more and more chemical-laden creams at it rarely solves the problem. That’s because most chemicals only further compromise the lipid barrier (outermost layer of the epidermis that acts like a brick wall to keep skin safe and healthy). Pure aloe vera gel, on the other hand, is naturally rich in vitamins and minerals that help skin actually heal and regenerate, while simultaneously soothing away the inflammation. It is also both anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, which helps keep out germs and other toxins till the barrier function is restored.

Bust acne: Aloe vera works on several levels to heal chronic acne. It’s antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory, which helps prevent and heal acne at the cellular level.

Lighten blemishes: It is packed with two hormones – auxin and gibberellins – which boost the production of new, healthy skin cells. So dab pure aloe vera gel on any spots to heal them quickly and with minimal scarring.

Reduce pore size: Being an astringent, aloe vera decongests the pores, keeping out dirt, microbes and excess sebum. Consequently, they look smaller and don’t develop blackheads.

Prevent premature aging: Fine lines and wrinkles? Aloe vera gel is rich in vitamins C, E and beta carotene (a pre-cursor to vitamin A), which improve skin’s elasticity, making it smoother and more supple.

Eye makeup remover: Removing eye makeup, especially of the waterproof kind, is never easy. Blending one teaspoon each of aloe vera gel and extra virgin olive oil works perfectly. Simply soak some cotton wool in the liquid and wipe gently across your eyes.
