Natural skincare is the best. I can’t even fathom to think of the crap I put on my skin. I’ve definitely learnt my lesson and switched things up over the years including vital ingredients like Aloe Vera!
Aloe Vera gel comes from a plant, when you peel an aloe leaf apart you will find the pure gel inside. It is an incredible at healing and soothing. I discovered it after a bad case of sunburn and the redness turned to tan overnight, I couldn’t believe it, no peeling or soreness. The cold gel felt lush, so I thought hey, I’m going to slap this on my face and I have been doing it ever since.
If you don’t have an aloe plant hanging about then you can pick up the gels pretty cheap, just make sure there aren’t many added ingredients to the gel. I use the Aloe Pura range which is 99.9% pure aloe! You can pick it up for around £5 in Superdrug and Holland and Barrett.
The gel dries very quickly on the skin and I usually pop some moisturiser over the top but stick to a routine of using the plain aloe during the day and the gel with added tea tree at night. You can also use it in your hair for a mask or on any burn to cool and heal it.
