The ice cube rub can help you achieve the trendy “glass skin“, with a smooth texture, reduced pore size and natural glow. Aloe vera gel can be added to an ice cube tray to create an aloe vera gel cube.

For a revitalising dose of freshness, or to just soothe skin burns, use it at least twice a week.

Keep infection and acne at bay

People with acne-prone skin can get relief with the constant use of aloe vera as it helps in gentle cleansing and removing bacteria with its antiseptic properties.

The usage is simple and anyone can try it with ease at home. Take one tablespoon of aloe vera gel with one teaspoon of Moringa and Neem oil.

Mix all the ingredients well to make a thick paste and apply it all over your face and massage gently in a circular motion. Leave it for 30 minutes, then rinse it off. You may follow up with a clay-based mask for best results.

Shine with glistering soft hair

Aloe vera has the ability to treat rough and dry hair as it contains proteolytic enzymes that help to rebuild the scalp’s dead skin and stimulate new hair growth by promoting blood circulation.

To make a smooth paste, combine two tablespoons of castor oil with one tablespoon of aloe vera.

Apply it to your hair and scalp. Leave it on for an hour and then rinse it off with water and mild herbal shampoo.

This will add intense hydration, shine and softness to your hair through the antioxidant-rich aloe vera gel and castor oil, which strengthens hair follicles while promoting growth.

Dodge dandruff

Aloe vera is a natural and hassle-free solution to eliminating dandruff because it is rich in anti-fungal and anti-viral qualities. So putting it on your scalp can help nourish it and reduces dandruff.

You can try this homemade aloe-methi mask to treat dandruff and hair loss since it is a high source of protein and iron that promotes blood circulation.

To make a smooth paste, combine one tablespoon of aloe vera gel with the methi seeds that have been soaked overnight. The combination should be applied to the scalp for 30 minutes, and then you should rinse it out.
