Aloe Homemade Masks for Hair and Skin

Aloe vera is one of the oldest plants used in skin and hair beauty care. On the market you will find a wide range of cosmetics based on aloe vera, but as long as you have at home this natural plant is better to use it instead of the chemical products.

You must know that aloe vera contains about 20 amino acids important for skin, plus vitamins A and C, excellent for skin rejuvenation and enlightenment. Fresh leaves of aloe vera, directly cut on the plant stem, keep the best nutritional complex, but if you do not have a plant at home, you can buy aloe vera gel and juice in pharmacies. Here’ a few masks with amazing results on your skin or hair.

Aspirin and aloe vera mask. To give back the brightens to your skin, you need a mask based on aloe vera gel and aspirin. We recommend aspirin granules because it dissolves more quickly. In combination with aloe vera, aspirin removes dead cells on the skin, deep cleans the skin and leaves the skin silky and shiny. You need: 2 tablespoons of aloe vera, one aspirin and few drops of water to make a paste. Mix ingredients and leave the mask to act for 15-20 minutes.

Honey and aloe vera. Aloe vera and honey are the perfect ingredients to restore skin’s brilliance, making it supple and rejuvenated. You need: 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel and 1 teaspoon honey. After mixing the ingredients, apply the mask on face for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with warm water. Your skin will be refreshed and will have a fresh look.

Green tea and aloe vera mask. This mask is great for you if you have oily skin and want to restore its natural glow, and also slow down the sebum production. You need: 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel and 2 tablespoons of green tea. This astringent purifying mask is best applied with a cotton pad or a clean brush.

Hair mask with lemon and aloe. You need aloe vera and lemon juice. Mix half a teaspoon aloe gel with a tablespoon of lemon juice. Add to the mixture a small amount of shampoo and wash it as you usually do, but let the shampoo work for a few minutes. With 10-15 minutes before you wash your hair, massage your scalp with aloe vera gel. Let it act 10 minutes then wash your hair with the mixture above.

Hair mask for frizzy hair. For this recipe you need two leaves of aloe vera, three tablespoons of coconut oil (can be replaced with olive oil). Clean the leaves of aloe vera with a little water. Cut the leaves lengthwise to extract its gel. Put the gel into a clean container and mix it well with the oil until it forms a smooth paste. Apply this paste on dry hair and let it act for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, wash your hair normally. You should apply this mask twice a month.
