As a rule, people use it as a facial mask that needs to be removed after the application but the best effect it can give is given exactly if you leave it on your face for the night. What does such a mask do?
First of all, it can help you lighten your skin. No matter what the tone of your skin is, aloe vera can help you slightly lighten it. This effect is especially visible if you have darker areas on your face. Applying aloe vera directly onto them can significantly reduce pigmentation and make your skin more elastic.
Then, aloe vera as a night mask can help you treat and eventually completely fight acne. The antibacterial and anti-inflammatory powers of the aloe vera pulp can help you a lot when it comes to the treatment of breakouts and the appearance of new ones.
The best thing about aloe vera as an acne means is that it can be applied even to super sensitive skin areas, which would be impossible with the majority of anti-acne means. Aloe vera is also effective against post-acne blemishes.
As a lightening agent, aloe vera is able to reduce pigmentation in darker eyelids and also reduce the darkness of circles around the eyes. In addition to this, when applied onto the eye area, aloe vera is able to reduce puffiness and moisten the skin perfectly well. You will notice the reduction of fine lines in the eye area almost after the very first application.
Aloe vera is a great thing that reduces irritation and dryness on the skin that’s affected by sun and wind. Aloe vera reduces flaking and dryness, returns elasticity and healthy glow to the skin and gives it a fresh color.
Not all people know that oily skin needs moisture, too. They degrease the skin and dehydrate it. Aloe vera is a natural moisturizer for oily skin that regulates the production of sebum and keeps the skin healthy all the time. The best effect is achieved when the remedy is applied overnight day after day.
- It’s a treatment for broken skin
No matter, actually, which wounds you have, aloe vera can heal them. Damage caused by wind or sun, cracked lips, wounds in the corners of your mouth – all this can be fought effectively with the help of aloe vera and its soothing powers. What’s more, small scratches, inflammations and other wounds on your face will not get infected because of the antibacterial powers of the remedy.
- It’s a gentle but effective exfoliant
When applied overnight, aloe vera can even exfoliate dead skin cells from your face and boost all the regeneration processes effectively. This is a power that has not yet received any wide recognition but it’s useful to keep it in mind.
When applying aloe vera for face, apply them all over, involving your eyebrows and hairline. Aloe vera will make the hair healthy and strong, give your brows and hairline thickness and shine, and you will never know what dryness and itching are.
The most common and effective aloe vera
Depending on the problem you are treating and the form of aloe vera you have, the methods of application and usage may differ. For instance, if you are treating dryness, mixing aloe vera juice or gel with several drops of coconut oil will give you the best moisturizer ever that’s quickly absorbed and gives your skin all the benefits of both the components.
If you are treating acne, it makes sense to add something that will enhance the power of aloe vera (like essential oils or extracts from respective plants) or, instead, use the purest aloe vera gel that you can only find.
If you need to reduce puffiness and fine lines around the eyes, apply pure aloe vera gel onto the eye area and wear the sleeping eye mask, which is filled with a kind of gel and can be kept in the fridge before wearing. If you have no such possibility, freeze some aloe vera gel and apply it with the help of the cubes.
You can also enrich your existing creams and lotions by adding some pure aloe vera gel to them. However, make sure that you will be able to use these remedies within a very short period of time. Even kept in the fridge, aloe vera gel is able to lose its potential powers and positive effects within a very short while.
The same refers to the freshly made aloe vera products. If you are into making them yourself, out of freshly cut aloe leaves, make sure that you don’t cut more than you can use immediately. You should not think that the more you apply the better the effect will be. It’s recommended to apply exactly as much as is enough to leave your face slightly shiny. If you have applied too much, you need to wipe away the excess.
