ISLAMABAD – Aloe vera has been used for a host of purposes since the ancient Egyptians called it the “plant of immortality” and here PakistanTribe.co provides you the top five uses of Alo vera.
Top five uses of Alo vera are as below:
As a makeup remover
You have to get the raccoon eyes off somehow, but many makeup removers contain harsh chemicals that are very drying to your skin, says Ildi Pekar, founder of an eponymous skin care line. She recommends you squeeze a dollop of pure aloe gel onto a cotton ball and swipe away the day for a simple and effective alternative.
As a soothing ice cube
Grab an ice cube tray, fill with aloe gel, and freeze. Pop them out and store in a freezer safe container. These little frosty fellows are great after too much sun exposure, run-ins with your stove, bug bites, poison ivy, and even psoriasis.
As a face wash
Mix 1 Tbsp aloe vera gel with 1 tsp almond milk, and 1 tsp lemon, wash and let sit for a few minutes before rinsing. Since some minerals found in aloe are antibacterial, this face wash is ideal for sensitive skin, breakouts, and rosacea, says Pekar. Need an anti-aging boost? Mix 1 Tbsp aloe with 1 tsp 100% raw organic coconut oil, massage into hands until the contents are warm, then wash and rinse.
For dry, cracked feet
Petra Strand, creator of Pixi Beauty, incorporates this ultimate green beauty ingredient into a foot mask that makes dry, cracked feet baby soft. Mix together 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup corn meal, 4 Tbsp aloe vera gel, and 1/2 cup unscented body lotion and rub all over tired feet until well exfoliated. Sit for 10 minutes, then rinse with warm water.
