Aloevera Treatment For Dark Spots/Blemishes

Dark spots are not a skin diseases or disorder and hence should not be fulled over too much. However, they are a huge cosmetic concern to many and must be dealt with at no cost. If you worry too much, there are certain home remedies you can try out before you go there only to churn your honey.

Aloe vera gel, a naturally occurring plant enzyme too has wonderful skin reviving properties and can be used for treating dark spots. Pluck an aloe vera leaf and dab it directly on the dark spots every day.

Continue doing it and feel your skin evolving into a fresh and glowing texture within days, along with removal of dark spots almost completely.

  • Mix lemon juice and Aloe vera gel and then apply onto the affected area. Let the paste stay for roughly 10-15 minutes and then wash off. You can also use cotton to apply the paste to your skin.
  • Create a paste with a small amount of turmeric using 1 tsp of milk, 1 tsp of honey and a few drops of rose water. Then add the aloe vera gel to the paste and mix well. Once the paste has been mixed, evenly apply to the face and neck and leave for roughly 20 minutes. Wash off with cold or warm water and pat dry to reveal your new glowing skin.

This is my personal observation.

Aloe Vera a Moisturizer

Use the Aloe vera gel alone or along with your favourite skin cream to help better soften and moisturise the skin. Because aloe regenerates skin cells. It is also known to reduce wrinkles, eczema, acne, sun/age spots, and other blemishes. It is also gentle enough to use to care of tender skin after radiation therapy.

Applying Aloevera gel at night after washing the face also keeps skin hydrated if one is sleeping in air-conditioned room or a heated room.After bathing apply aloevera gel on moist skin to tap moisture and it will also heal any wounds,rash on the skin.It works great for oily skin.

Aloevera As Moisturizer

Aloe Vera for Stretch Marks

  • Stir equal quantities of aloe vera gel, olive oil and wheat oil in a small bowl.Pour this in an airtight container.Leave overnight and apply this on the stretch marks. Continue doing the same process regularly to get rid of stretch mark.
  • Mix a sufficient amount of ground coffee and fresh aloe vera gel into a paste.

Apply this paste on stretch marks and spread it evenly.

Massage it gently for 3 - 5 minutes.

Let it sit for about 15 - 20 minutes.

Use a warm towel or cloth to wipe it off.

Rinse with water and apply olive oil or moisturiser after drying.

Repeat the same process daily for about a month to reduce stretch marks.

Aloe Vera Gel As Primer in Makeup -yessss

Mix a teaspoon or two of moisturiser (depending on how oily your skin is) to a dollop of pure aloe vera gel and apply all over your face as a primer. Aloe vera gel will soothe redness and the moisturiser combination is a great way to maintain a dewy finish without looking oily. It works just as well as most store-bought makeup primers and contains fewer chemicals that could possibly be bad for my skin or toxic to my body.

Not only does aloe vera gel fill in the small wrinkles and pores in your skin to create a much smoother surface for makeup application, I've found it is also very affective in controlling oilyskin and shine. As a result, makeup looks a lot more even and lasts longer throughout the day.
