How to Make Aloe Vera Gel at Home

I remember the day when I tried treating a freshly squeezed pimple with a freshly cut Aloe Vera leaf. In my list of beauty discoveries, Aloe Vera sits high up, along with baking soda for hair and banana peels for acne. In fact, I bet Aloe Vera and banana peels are interchangeable, you should try that!

Aloe Vera is equally good for acne and sunburn but you can use it in a number of other ways, for example:
  • to treat seborrheic dermatitis or psoriasis, 
  • on cooking burns, 
  • for rejuvenating face masks,
  • as a skin moisturizer
  • instead of shampoo,
  • to tame frizzy hair.
Instead of buying Aloe Vera gel from the store you can make it yourself at home following any of these 5 tutorials:
