3 Ways You Can Use Aloe Vera for Natural Beauty
Aloe vera has so many natural beauty benefits. In this post not only I want to share how to benefit from aloe vera gel on the outside, but also on the inside. You can use aloe vera as a facial mask, even as a hair mask, and drink up its delicious nutrients in a smoothie.
Aloe vera has so many favorable benefits like the following:
- Balances hormonal problems
- Boosts immunity
- Excellent for hair and skin
- Flushes toxins out of your body
- Helps treat anemia
- Loaded with vitamins and minerals
- And much more!
These are three ways you can use aloe vera on your exterior and interior for beauty benefits:
ALOE FACIAL MASK
Use this aloe vera facial mask for nice looking, and soft skin.
The ingredients you need for this aloe facial mask are:
- Aloe Gel – One small slice of aloe vera leaf
- Rose Water or Lime Juice – One teaspoon
- Agave – One teaspoon
Once you have all your ingredients, cut a small piece of aloe vera leaf and scoop out the gel. In a small bowl mix this with either rose water or lime juice, about one teaspoon. Also about one teaspoon of agave. I like using all plant-based ingredients for this refreshing aloe facial mask.
Apply the aloe vera facial mask on your nice face for 15 to 30 minutes. Then wash your face with regular facial wash. You will feel your skin refreshed and soft.
In case you don’t have rose water available you can make it yourself I already have a post where I show you how to make your own rose water.
ALOE HAIR MASK
This aloe vera hair mask leaves your hair healthy and shiny. If you are suffering from dandruff this is also a great mask. I think it works even better than regular dandruff shampoo as I have used this on my daughter a couple of times and gives her really good results.
The ingredients you need for this aloe hair mask are:
- Aloe Gel – One small slice of aloe vera leaf
- Coconut Oil – One teaspoon
- Tea Tree Oil – 3 to 4 drops
Gather all your three natural ingredients to mix up. You will need a small slice of aloe vera leaf. Scoop out the gel from the aloe vera leaf, and add about one teaspoon of coconut oil and about three to four drops of tea tree oil. I use a fork against a spoon to mash really well the aloe vera gel. Mix everything well.
Then apply the aloe vera hair mask evenly throughout your hair. You can leave it anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. Then wash your hair with regular shampoo and conditioner. After a few uses, you will notice your hair is healthy and shiny. You will have everyone asking how you got such amazing results!
You can make an aloe vera smoothie to drink up all of its benefits. The aloe vera smoothie will leave you feeling satisfied and refreshed.
The ingredients you need for this aloe smoothie are:
- Fresh Aloe Vera Leaf
- Green Apple (or any type of apple you have)
- Lime Juice
- OR Orange Juice
Gather all these natural, delicious ingredients. I use a Magic Bullet Blender because it’s small and portable, but you can use any blender you have available. Scoop out the gel from the aloe vera leaf, slice up an apple, add the juice of one lime, and blend with water or orange juice.
This aloe vera smoothie feels so refreshing to drink. In the colder months, I wouldn’t add ice, but if you’re heading out and want a cool sensation I recommend adding ice for extra cooling.
