The wonder gel of aloe vera comes handy in beauty care. You can make your own aloe vera gel at home as it's easy to prepare and much better than the ones available in supermarkets. Follow these simple steps to prepare your own aloe vera gel and use it for beauty care.
Wash your hands properly before cutting some leaves of the aloe vera plant. Next you need to drain-off the darker resin which can be done by placing the leaves in an upright position. Once the dark resin drains off, wash the aloe vera leaves and peel-off the thick skin using a knife.
You will get a transparent gel when you finish peeling. The gel needs to be mixed with either vitamin E oil, vitamin C powder, grapefruit seed extract, or some essential oil to preserve for a longer time. Put the gel and one of the ingredients in the blender to mix well. When it's done pour the gel into a clean glass jar.You can store the homemade aloe vera gel in the refrigerator, and use it for many months.
Aloe vera gel can be used for treating acne, wrinkles, stretch marks, rashes, burns, razor burn, bruises, rosacea, insect bite and fungal infections. In fact, it can be used in the treatment of any skin-related ailments, but make sure that you consult your doctor before using it to treat yourself.
