Aloe vera is known for its various skin benefits. It moisturizes, soothes the skin, and combats skin aging. These DIY masks allow you to have a spa experience at home and relax as the aloe vera moisturizes your skin.
Aloe Vera Mask For Dehydrated Dry Skin
If you experience dry skin, this mask can help strengthen your skin barrier and hydrate it deeply. Mix the gel from two aloe vera leaves with one tablespoon of coconut oil. Coconut oil will moisturize the deep layers of your skin and help resolve the dry patches. At the same time, the aloe vera will soothe your skin. However, if you are acne-prone, you should avoid using coconut oil as it is irritating to some people.
Soothing Face Mask with Honey
Like aloe vera, honey is a great natural ingredient that helps calm the skin and prevent irritations. Adding honey to the aloe vera mask will also add some antibacterial properties. To make this mask, you should add half a tablespoon to the gel of two aloe vera leaves. Mix in well. Be careful not to add to much honey, as the mask will be too sticky.
Probiotic Aloe Vera Mask
Probiotics are a new big thing in skincare. There is evidence that our microbiome plays a big part in the health in the appearance of our skin. Use the power of probiotics to your advantage with this mask that combines aloe vera and yogurt. Combine equal parts of yogurt and aloe vera for this mask. This mask is great if you have sunburns too, as both aloe vera and yogurt help irritated skin.
Gentle Exfoliating and Hydrating Mask
The apple cider vinegar in this mask will gently exfoliate your skin. Add the gel from two to three aloe vera leaves to the blender, one teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and one teaspoon of honey. Blend everything together until combined. You can store the mask in the fridge before use; that way, it will feel cooling and refreshing on your skin. Don’t wear the mask for longer than ten minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water afterward.
