Skin Care Secrets

Hey guys!

So here it is, my secret to having soft, healthy skin.

Yes, I use aloe vera. My mom has a few plants growing at home and I usually just cut off a leaf for my weekly use. (The leaf will grow back, trust me!)

Today I am going to share with you a DIY face mask that leaves your skin feeling moisturized, hydrated and brightened. If you do not have an aloe vera plant, you can definitely buy some in a bottle from your local pharmacy. Just remember the purer, the better!

You will need 1 banana, 2 tablespoons aloe vera gel, and 3 teaspoons almond oil, and a mixing bowl.

  1. In the bowl, mash your banana with a fork
  2. Add the aloe vera gel
  3. Stir very well
  4. Add your almond oil
  5. Mix into a paste
  6. Wash your face very well before using
  7. Spread the mask evenly over your face and neck
  8. Let the mask do its job for 15-20 minutes!
  9. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water
  10. Rinse with cold water at the end to close and tighten your pores.
  11. Finish off with your favorite moisturizer.

Doing this a couple times a week has revolutionized my skin. I have even noticed that pimple scars were healing, which makes sense because of the fact that aloe vera has anti-inflammatory properties.

I also add a drop of aloe vera gel to my skin cream after showering. It definitely enhances the effect of the moisturizer and gives an unmistakable glow!

Coming up: Aloe vera can also be added to olive oil and avocado for a super moisturizing hair mask!
