Healthy skin and good health, are prime goals we set and try to accomplish in our life. When thinking about natural remedies first thing that comes to mind is Aloe Vera. Surprisingly, it is a very popular plant in the world. East or west, people have recognized its Supreme power & its importance.
It is always recommendable to use natural products for our skin as well as for our health. Why? because we know, our mother earth offers the purest form of life, so be it a succulent plant like a Cactus or a supreme plant like an Aloe Vera. By the way, Aloe vera is a distinct species of succulent plant.
Despite knowing its characteristics & benefits, I was staying away from it for no reason. Yes! perhaps it is an easily available plant or product, and I was chasing around expensive products in the market for quick solutions.
Unfortunately, I have been facing acne issues for the last 2 years and no matter what I use, the acne issue rises again after endless trials. So in my story, Aloe vera was a game-changer, not in terms of curing my acne but for giving a relief from irritation and inflammation.
This is the reason, here I am going to explain how Aloe vera helps me in my day-to-day routine.
First, it is an excellent remedy for irritated skin. After shaving my face or cleaning my upper lip. Since my skin has become sensitive nowadays and reacts badly even to face shaving or threading. I immediately apply the Aloe Vera gel to the affected area. Instantly, it gives me a soothing & cooling effect.
I use it as an under-eye moisturizer. Yes! you heard me right. I have tried some other brands but so far I get this cooling effect only by applying Aloe vera gel. Instantly, it gives me soft and healthy undereye skin, but then don’t forget to wash it off, or else it might get into the eye causing burning or itchy eyes.
Further, I also like to use it after removing makeup & cleansing my face. I apply it and let it sit on my skin for 10-15 min then rinse it with water. This way, I try to get an extra level of hydration, and the end result is satisfactory.
Since I have already mentioned my acne issue earlier. I have been using Aloe-vera gel for the last two years and I believe it is supporting me to fight against acne (not solely). Whenever I apply it, every day it gives me another reason to use it. Meaning, the irritated & inflamed acne gets a dose of icy effect. Subsequently, its phenomenal soothing property makes my skin sip some gel and calm down my angry & irritated face a bit.
Acne or no acne, this wonderous & all-purpose plant is just outstanding. Just give it a try if you haven’t already.
It is indeed a miraculous plant with so many benefits.
Let me know how you use Aloe-vera in your daily life.
