Aloe Vera For Skin: 5 Ways to Use It

Aloe Vera For Skin: 5 Ways to Use It

Aloe Vera is the go-to plant for many people looking to treat skin problems, and it’s not just folk wisdom. The gel inside of the leaf has been shown to have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that can help with everything from sunburn to acne. While there are many ways you can use aloe vera on your face, we’ve rounded up five of our favorites:

Burn Treatment

Aloe Vera gel is a natural anti-inflammatory and can help to soothe burns.

If you’ve recently had a burn, aloe vera can help to speed up the healing process, reduce swelling and prevent infection.

Simply apply the gel from an aloe vera leaf or juice from its inner flesh directly onto the affected area as often as needed.

After-Sun Moisturizer

Aloe Vera gel is soothing and cooling. Aloe Vera can help reduce inflammation, which can be great for those of us with sensitive skin. It can also help to soothe redness due to sunburn, as well as itching and peeling.

Aloe Vera gel is safe even for babies! That’s right—you don’t have to wait until adulthood before you start using aloe vera on your skin (although it’s important not to give it to children under two years old). If you don’t want or need the added moisturizing benefits of an aloe vera moisturizer, or if they’re too expensive, just apply pure aloe vera straight from the plant and enjoy its many benefits!

Facial Cleanser

Cleansers are among the most significant ingredients in your skincare routine. They remove the dirt, oil, and makeup that clog pores and cause breakouts, but they also influence the texture of your skin. A cleanser with harsh chemicals can strip away essential oils from your pores, leaving them dry and irritated.

When choosing a facial cleanser for sensitive skin, look for one that is mild enough to use daily without irritating your skin. Look for cleansers free of harsh chemicals like sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS). This ingredient has been shown to irritate sensitive skin by drying it out—not exactly what you want when trying to improve its appearance! In addition to SLS-free formulas, look for gentle cleansing agents such as coconut or jojoba oil instead of harsher detergents like SLES. These products may be more expensive than traditional formulations, but they won’t negatively affect sensitive skin.

Face Mask

Add two teaspoons of honey to a bowl to make a face mask. Add the aloe vera gel and mix until you have a thick paste. Apply it to your face, avoiding the eye area. Leave for 10 minutes before rinsing warm water and drying off with a towel.

Acne Treatment

Another way to use aloe vera gel for skin is to treat acne. Aloe vera gel has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce the redness and inflammation of your breakouts.

To use aloe vera gel as an acne treatment:

  • Apply a small amount of aloe vera gel to your face.
  • Leave it on for 20 minutes or so, then wash off with water only. Do not scrub your face; simply rinse it with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel before going to bed or when you wake up in the morning! Repeat this process daily until you’re happy with your skin’s appearance (usually about two weeks).

Conclusion

Aloe Vera is a natural way to treat the most common skin problems. It’s also an effective treatment for sunburn, acne, and other skin issues. In addition, it can be used as a moisturizer for dry skin or even as an aftershave lotion for men.
