You read it already: the Aloe vera plant works as an aftersun on burns. The gel on the inside of the leaf has a soothing and cooling effect on your skin. So you don’t have to buy crazy remedies for this. You can easily break off a piece of the plant and apply it to the burnt spots.
Apply to scars and heal wounds
We all know that large scars will never completely disappear. And that of course it takes quite some time for the skin to recover as much as possible. Aloe vera can help with that. The plant contains substances that the skin needs to heal. The gel of the Aloe vera plant can heal small wounds even eight days faster than creams or other remedies.
A clean face
When you take your makeup off your face, it can leave a stinging sensation. This is often due to make-up wipes that contain alcohol. Of course there are also make-up removers without alcohol, but with the juice of the prickly plant you can remove that make-up with natural substances. It also ensures that your skin becomes healthier and stays hydrated.
Fresh and healthy
Bad breath is very annoying. Fortunately, there is a simple solution: you guessed it… Aloe vera. The juice contains an anti-inflammatory substance.
Bad breath is often caused by inflammation or bacteria in the mouth. Therefore, drink a maximum of half a glass of Aloe vera juice every day. Make it liquid by beating it with, for example, a stick blender. And if you don’t like that, you can mix it with another juice; for example apple juice.
So good for fresh breath. And also very healthy. Aloe vera contains all kinds of vitamins that the body needs.
You have already read above that half a glass of Aloe vera per day helps against bad breath, but be careful not to exceed it. Aloe vera can have a strong laxative effect in larger quantities. This is of course useful if you suffer from constipation.
soft and healthy hair
Aloe vera is healing, soothing and moisturizing for the skin. That also means for your scalp. And even for your hair. The gel ensures that your scalp is less itchy, that fewer flakes fall from your hair when you scratch, that your hair remains hydrated and that your dry ends are less. Also for this you have to beat the gel a little with, for example, a stick blender. Then you can just rub it into your hair, let it soak in for a while and rinse it out again.
Collect the gel
We are always talking about the juice – or the gel – of the Aloe vera plant. But how do you actually get it out of the magazine? It is very simple in a few steps:
Step 1: Cut the leaf from the plant with a sharp knife.
Step 2: Carefully cut the leaf in half across the wide side.
Step 3: Remove the gel from the leaf with a spoon and put it in a jar to store it.
The gel can be stored in a sealed jar in the refrigerator for about a week.
