Beauty Tip 3 – Natural Aloe Vera face mask
Aloe gel contains two hormones Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones have anti-inflammatory properties which provide wound healing and reduce skin inflammation. Typically skin on the face is inflamed with the appearance of spots. By applying Aloe Vera face mask you start to reduce the damage done to your skin and promote healing.
Moreover, in Ayurvedic medicine, Aloe Vera is used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne.
For this treatment it is better than you buy an Aloe Vera plant, allow it to grow in your house or garden, that should give you free Aloe Vera leaves that you can use for treatment. All you have to do is cut a leaf at its midsection from the Aloe plant. Slice a small section, approximately 3-4 cm’s from that longleaf, put the rest of the leaf in the fridge for use on another day.
From the small slice take of the top part of the skin, be careful not to cut yourself while you do this. Now you can rub the Aloe leaf on your face. Leave on for 5-10 min’s and wash off with warm water, then pat dry your face. With regular application of this treatment, you will notice the difference in your skin tone and appearance of spots will reduce.
