Best aloe vera gel for acne scars in india

You may have seen aloe vera gels and juices at health food stores that you can purchase, which are made from the gel that’s found in the leaves of the aloe plant While you can certainly use these if you like, the whole plant leaves are actually very simple to use at home and are much more affordable too If you already have an aloe plant, all you have to do is take a mature leaf, slice it open lengthwise, and scoop out the gel out of one of the leaves The gel is essentially the healing part of the plant

Here’s how to use it:

1 A Skin Healing Mask

Aloe vera is wonderful for not only healing acne scars but also for moisturizing the skin and keeping it youthful It’s easy to make a healing facemask with nothing more than the gel of 1-2 aloe vera leaf halves Mix this with some essential oil if you like for a nice scent (mint, thieves, and lavender are nice) or simply use it plain Apply for 30 minutes and let it sit It’s mild in scent on its own and has a particularly wonderful cooling feel

2 A Sunburn Healing Gel

As many people know, aloe vera is wonderful for helping with sunburn You’ve likely seen those sunburn gels at drugstores with aloe vera, but the better option that will provide many less chemicals is to just use real aloe leaf It can help reduce redness and pain associated with sunburn fairly quickly and can be applied liberally as much as needed You can apply the gel plain or can mix it with a carrier oil, such as coconut and hemp, for extra moisturizing and healing benefits

3 Minor Skin Burns

4 Cuts and Wounds

The gel of the aloe vera plant contains polysacharride fibers, which is essentially why it’s used as a digestive aid (but that also makes it problematic for some people) These fibers also help to seal wounds and it’s natural cooling properties help soothe pain from cuts and woundsWork Hard in Silence, Let Success be your Noise We know that there is no substitute for shortcut for excellence. Apply aloe to minor skin cuts and wounds after you’ve cleansed the area with a warm cloth and some peroxide (yes, that part stings) Then seal it up with a bandage and let it sit to heal overnight or for a day

5 Itching or Skin Irritation

Psoriasis and skin irritation can both be a pain to deal with (literally) and can also be hard to manage Many prescription creams and over the counter creams don’t work, and those that do often contain excess chemicals that are not best for our skins to absorb (parabens are common ingredient in these creams) Aloe is one of the best to relieve itching and irritation because it contains glycoproteins which help reduce inflammation upon contact

What About Aloe for Internal Use?

Let’s appreciate this spiny looking plant a bit more often than many of us do (or in my case, did) Like most plants, it’s got quite the impressive profile at keeping us healthy
