How To Use Aloe Vera For Skin and Hair
As A Nourishing Hair Mask
An aloe vera hair mask is a great remedy to provide instant relief from itchy, dry scalp. All you need is some fresh aloe vera juice and hair oil.
If you don't have an aloe vera plant, you can use our Aloe Vera juice toner which has 98.4% aloe vera in a liquid form making it easier to spread into your scalp and hair.
Just mix an equal amount of aloe vera juice and oil and massage it all over your scalp and hair. Leave it on for 20-30 minutes before rinsing with shampoo and conditioner.
As Hydrating Face Mask
If you have dry or dehydrated skin, using an aloe vera face pack 2-3 times a week will improve the skin’s hydration levels and make your face look supple and radiant.
Try our Aloe Vera gel as a soothing and nourishing mask rich in minerals and vitamins, especially vitamin C which makes it a great after-sun remedy too.
Scoop out the required quantity and apply a thick layer on clean skin and leave it on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing off with cold water. Pat your skin dry and follow up with one of JC's facial oils to lock in the hydration.
As Daily Moisturiser
If you have oily skin, pure aloe vera gel is a great lightweight and natural moisturiser to keep your skin hydrated every day without causing any greasiness. Scoop out a small quantity and apply it on clean, damp skin twice a day.
And if you have normal to dry skin, layer 2-3 drops of facial oil on top to seal the moisture into the skin.
As A Toner
Aloe vera plant juice has up to 96% water which makes it a super-hydrating toner that can be used before moisturiser or face oil. After cleansing your face, spray our aloe vera juice toner directly on your face before applying your moisturiser.
You could even carry the bottle around with you to rehydrate and rejuvenate your skin throughout the day.
To Activate Your Powder Face Mask
If you love whipping up a DIY face mask at home, you can use our aloe vera toner as a replacement for plain water to activate your recipes. This will infuse your face mask with all the nutrients present in aloe vera.
It will even make your face masks feel more cooling and hydrating.
As Spot Treatment
Aloe vera is known for its healing nature. Along with having strong anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce redness and irritation, aloe vera even has some salicylic acid in it which can be useful in clearing up acne. Dab some pure aloe gel straight onto pimples or even minor cuts and burns to help them heal faster.
As post hair removal treatment.
Hair removal techniques like threading, waxing and even shaving can cause your skin to redden and burn a bit due to irritation. To soothe your skin, massage some aloe vera gel immediately after hair removal to calm down your skin. The cooling effect is even better if you refrigerate the gel for a few minutes.
