We Found Out Why Everyone Is Raving About This Aloe Fresh Soothing Gel
Every time a person mentions Aloe Vera, the first thought that comes to one’s mind is – sunburn!
It’s an old age treatment used to help the itching and stinging associated with burns on the skin. However, the use of Aloe Vera is more than just soothing your skin from a bad sunburn.
It has become a very popular skincare ingredient these days, especially in Korean beauty products, which demystifies the myth that all things come for a cost. The most famous one of all? Aloe 99% Fresh Soothing Gel!
WHAT IS ALOE VERA?
Aloe Vera (a.k.a. Lidah Buaya in Malay) is a succulent that belongs to the Asphodelaceae family. It contains almost 20 vitamins including A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, E, with 8 different proteins and has both antioxidant and antimicrobial properties.
Aloe Vera is often used in makeup and skincare products because of its moisturising and emollient properties. On top of that, because of its high content of natural vitamins, Aloe Vera is able to help relieve stress, hydrate as well as soften skin’s outer layer — which means that you’ll be able to maintain its youth for a very long time.
Trust me, I’ve been using this 99% Soothing Aloe Gel every night and it has done amazing wonders to my skin! Here are ways you can maximise the use of Aloe Soothing Gel for a more beautiful complexion:-
Moisturizing Pack or Face Mask
After cleansing and applying toner to your face, spread a generous layer of aloe gel evenly on your face and neck. Gently pat until it absorbs to your face and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Do this every night and you’ll definitely wake up to a brighter and smoother skin.
P/S: Be sure to not wash the gel off with water because then you might strip away all the important benefits.
Use as a moisturizer
You can use this product as a moisturiser on its own, or opt to add in other skincare essentials to further enhance its benefits. Pick your favourite choice of oil and mix it with the Aloe gel with a ratio of 1:3 (oil: aloe). The best oils to use for this moisturizing solution are jojoba oil, argan oil, rosewater oil, coconut oil as well as vitamin E serum.
Get rid of “panda eyes” with this DIY Eye Patch
Chill your Aloe gel tub in the fridge – long enough for the gel to provide a cooling effect. When it’s all chilled, soak a pair of cotton pad, place on the eye area then sit back and relax.
As Aloe gel body lotion to avoid premature wrinkling
Choose between natural olive or avocado oil to create your very own body lotion. Simply mix your choice of oil and Aloe gel in ratio of 1:3 (oil: aloe). This will not only help to prevent premature wrinkling but also reduce stretch marks.
Get strong and healthy nails
Additionally, Aloe gel can be used as a nail essence that can be applied on brittle and dry nails. Aside from being able to strengthen and whiten your nails, this special ingredient can also help to eliminate fungus. Just use it before your manicure session or after you get out of the shower.
