Beauty advice on Aloe Vera

For how long should we apply aloe vera on face

The aloe barbadenisis or what is commonly known as aloe vera, is part if the lily family. Aloe vera helps in stimulating the production of elastin and collagen. This helps in the natural prevention of skin aging. The moisturizing properties of aloe vera are also effective as it removes dead cells and makes easier the absorption of nutrients needed for healthy skin. As a result it decreases clogging of pores and reduces the intensity of pigmentation and dark spots on the face. The juice of aloe vera is also very useful in getting rid of old scars and keeps your skin healthy.

The application of aloe vera is simple - you don't necessarily have to use a paste or gel, as you can directly apply the juice of the aloe vera on your face, leave it on for a an approximate time of 5-7 minutes, and wash it off using lukewarm water. The application of aloe vera only once a day is sufficient enough to yield results over a period of time. You can also put it to your lips to make them softer. Though you can apply aloe vera to your skin after exposure to the sun to keep it healthy, avoid using it prior to exposure to the sun as it may cause an out break of rash on the exposed area. Avoid using aloe if you're allergic to onions or tulips.
