Aloe Vera gel has been used from ancient times for skin care and here in our village it is extensively used for skin care. We use it for treating burns, acne and for all kinds of inflammation. We have plenty of Aloe Vera plants growing in our farm and whenever we want 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 but only for making creams as it has longer shelf life and it also gives perfect consistency to homemade creams. To make fresh Aloe Vera gel, cut a leaf from the plant and then wash the leaf thoroughly to get rid of the slimy green juice. Now remove the thorns on both sides of the leaf, cut in half and then scoop out the flesh. Your pure homemade Aloe Vera gel is ready. Applying Aloe Vera gel on the face have these following skin benefits: 1. Anti Bacterial Properties: Aloe Vera gel has anti bacterial properties making it very effective for treating all skin infections. 2. Aloe Vera Gel For Facial Wrinkles: Aloe Vera is amazing for treating wrinkles as it helps improve elasticity both when taken internally and applied externally. You can read the study that proves it here. 3. Aloe Vera Gel For Acne: For people with acne prone skin, fresh Aloe Vera gel is truly a blessing. Though natural we can’t use many herbs on acne prone skin as it will cause intense burning and irritation. But Aloe Vera gel is very very soothing and is perfect to use on acne prone skin even daily. 4. Amazing Moisturizer: If you don’t want chemical based moisturizers and are looking for a natural alternative, look no further. Aloe Vera gel is a perfect and amazing natural moisturizer that can be used even on the most sensitive skin. 5. Aloe Vera Gel For Sun Burn: Aloe Vera gel is great for burn, it does two things when used as a treatment for sunburn. It reduces burning sensation and redness immediately and also helps us get back our original skin color very soon.
