How to use aloe vera? Discover the best and most effective ways

Aloe has recently become extremely popular and is extremely successful in the world of natural care. It is used for wounds, acne problems, hair care and sunburn. Aloe is also being made more and more cosmetics, and aloe gel has become a must have in almost every natural beautician. However, there are still many questions about how to use aloe, which is why in today's post I will present you the best and most effective ways to use it.

Aloe - an inconspicuous plant with exceptional properties
Aloe is a green plant belonging to the group of succulents, which does not require special care when growing in a pot on the windowsill. However, only seemingly it is an ordinary flower, which even somehow does not stand out with its beauty. Just overload the aloe leaf to see what is extremely valuable in it. And this is its pulp, which is an extremely valuable substance and rich in many ingredients with soothing, anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties. It is the aloe vera pulp from which the juice and aloe vera gel is obtained that makes this plant so unique and makes aloe appear on an increasing number of window sills.

Aloe pulp - composition and properties
Aloe pulp, although 99% water, is also an extremely valuable nutrient richness. What we will find in this jelly-like substance is, among others:

B vitamins, vitamin C and vitamin E.
amino acids in the form of alanine, serine, tyrosine, glutamic acid, proline, cystine, hydroxyproline
Mineral substances: phosphorus, sodium, calcium, copper, magnesium, zinc, potassium, iron, manganese, chromium
natural salicylic acid
unsaturated essential fatty acids
anti-inflammatory and antibacterial substances: cinnamic acid, beta-sitosterol, campesterol, bradykinase, sulfur compounds and phenols
magnesium lactate
It is said that there are about 200 nutrients found in aloe vera. It is thanks to their action that the aloe vera pulp and gel obtained from it show anti-inflammatory, soothing, soothing, regenerating and moisturizing properties. However, it is worth remembering that aloe has not only skincare properties. Used for health purposes, it supports the functioning of the digestive system, cleanses the body of toxins, strengthens the immune system, lowers LDL cholesterol and helps cure constipation.

How to use aloe vera for face care?
Aloe vera is great for caring for almost all skin types. Its use is recommended for people with very dry, rough and irritated skin, with acne problems and prone to frequent inflammation. Using aloe vera gel for face care, we strengthen its hydration, soothe inflammation and irritation, reduce swelling and swelling. Aloe soothes redness of the skin, supports epidermal regeneration processes, provides valuable nutrients. It also helps to lighten scars and discolorations, reduces skin roughness and the appearance of pimples. By demonstrating anti-inflammatory effect, it supports acne treatment.

The best ways to use aloe vera in your face care:
Aloe instead of cream
Aloe vera gel can successfully replace face cream and take care of skin hydration. Its regular use will also improve the condition of the skin, alleviate acne, help reduce blackheads. If you want to use aloe vera gel instead of cream, choose a gel enriched with extracts and vegetable oils ( e.g. Holika Holika ). Apply a thin layer on the cleansed and toned face skin.

Face mask
Aloe gel works great as a face mask that soothes, evens skin tone and moisturizes it. To use aloe vera as a mask, combine aloe vera gel with honey, turmeric, your favorite oils and hydrolates. You can also use aloe gel alone and apply it to the skin in a slightly larger amount, and after a few minutes collect excess from the skin.

Oil base
Aloe is a substance with strong moisturizing properties, which is why it is a great base for vegetable oil. As you probably know, pure oil has no direct moisturizing effect. When applied to the skin without the addition of a moisturizing substance, it works only nourishing, protecting and oiling. However, it is enough to use the oil in combination with aloe or hyaluronic acid to start moisturizing the skin. To do this, you can mix a little aloe gel with oil and apply them together on the skin, or first reach for aloe gel, apply it to cleansed skin, then pat the oil into it.

Aloe under the eyes
Aloe reduces swelling and swelling, soothes redness and bruising, brightens and evens skin tone, regenerates and refreshes. That's why aloe vera gel works great in the form of eye wraps. Regularly used, it relieves swelling, reduces bags under the eyes, brightens the bruises. You can even use it every day, replacing it with eye cream, or use as the aforementioned compresses. For this purpose, the gel should be cooled.

Aloe for blemishes
Aloe's soothing and anti-inflammatory properties should be used to reduce the visibility of pimples, breakouts and inflammation. You can do this by reaching for aloe vera gel and applying it spotwise to skin lesions, or cut off a piece of aloe leaf growing on the windowsill and apply to inflamed areas.

How do you use aloe vera for body care?
Aloe is also worth using in skin care of the whole body. I especially recommend using aloe vera gel for irritation caused by tanning and after depilation. Thanks to soothing, anti-inflammatory and regenerating properties, aloe vera will alleviate itching, redness and burning of the skin, moisturize and smooth it.

●  Soothing aloe compresses
Aloe wraps are a real first aid for burns and irritation caused by tanning. By applying aloe vera gel to the skin or applying the pulp from a cut stem to irritated places, you will quickly relieve burning, itching and redness of the skin. You can apply wraps even several times a day, but remember not to apply aloe vera gel on open wounds.

Aloe after depilation
Aloe also works great after depilation, when the skin is irritated, itchy, stinging and small pimples appear on it. Applying aloe vera gel on dry skin brings immediate relief to irritated skin.

How to use aloe vera for hair care?
Aloe is a humectant that moisturizes the hair and scalp. Due to the fact that it is a water-soluble substance, we do not have to fear that it will build up on the surface of the hair. By using aloe vera for hair and scalp care, we can count on the nutrition of the bulbs, faster hair growth and the elimination of dry dandruff. Aloe vera will make your hair shinier and smoother, add volume, strengthen and prevent static .

Avoid products with paraffin, silicones and SLS, and choose those that contain mild plant ingredients, oils and natural cleaning substances.
