Aloe vera gel has been used from ancient times for skin care and here in our village, it is extensively used for treating many skin problems. We use it for treating burns, acne and all kinds of inflammation. We have plenty of aloe vera plants growing in our farm and whenever we need it, we cut a leaf, extract the fresh gel and use it for remedies.
Though we get many ready made aloe vera gel in the markets, I would suggest using fresh homemade aloe vera gel for best results. I do use store bought aloe vera gel occasionally (the ones without any added color or perfume) but only for making creams as it has longer shelf life at room temperature and it also gives perfect consistency to homemade creams.

To make homemade aloe vera cream for treating acne scars, take 1 tsp of freshly extracted aloe vera gel in a cup. Add in the contents of 1 vitamin E capsule and mix well. Use this as a daily application cream for treating acne scars.

Fresh aloe vera leaf cut into small pieces is an amazing remedy for treating sunburn. For the remedy take an aloe vera leaf, wash the outer slimy green gel and cut into small squares. Now place the squares on a butter paper separately and freeze. To use, wrap a frozen aloe vera piece in a thin muslin cloth and massage the face.
3. Aloe Vera Face Pack For Glowing Skin:
Take 1 tsp aloe vera gel and grind it finely in a mixer to a liquid and strain. Add in 1/2 tsp besan and 1/4 tsp turmeric powder to it and apply as a face pack. This is a wonderful remedy to lighten dark spots and black marks in the face.
4. Aloe Vera Juice For Wrinkles:
Aloe vera juice reduces facial wrinkles very effectively if consumed on a regular basis at least weekly twice. For making the aloe vera juice, take the fresh gel of an aloe vera leaf after washing it well in a mixer along with few drops of lemon juice, a cup of water, a pinch of black salt and honey. Blend together well, strain and have a small cup.
5. For Sensitive Skin:
If you have very sensitive skin, I would suggest using fresh aloe vera gel straight off the plant without mixing it with anything. To do, just scoop out the flesh of a fresh aloe vera gel and apply directly on the face. Wait for it to dry and then wash and apply moisturiser.
