Seeing the rising temperature, we agree that the summer has arrived quite early this time. We’re already feeling its effects and it is only going to get worse with each passing month.
There will be a number of problems ranging from sunburns to frizzy hair, but to fix all these problems you need just one plant: aloe vera.
So here are the reasons why you should use aloe vera this summer for your better skin:
1. It will soothe painful sunburns
No matter how much we try, we inevitably have to step out of the house on a hot summer day. Most of us end with burns or rashes which are extremely painful. All you need is to apply aloe vera on the skin and let it heal the skin. It will soothe the pain and its antibacterial properties will heal the wound from getting infected.
2. Aloe vera is the solution to dry skin
The heat during the summers strips your skin of the natural oils and leaves it feeling dry. You just need to rub it on the skin and unlike other moisturisers, it doesn’t leave the skin greasy. Your skin absorbs it and its healing properties leave it feeling soft.
3. It makes for the perfect tan removal face mask
All you need is two tablespoon of besan (gram flour), one tablespoon of Dahi (curd) and one tablespoon of aloe vera gel. Mix it all together and apply it on your skin. Let it dry and scrub it. You’ll see results just after two applications.
4. It is also solution to dry hair caused by summer
We all know that we have to deal with dry, frizzy hair during summers. And split ends and hair fall makes sure that you have bad hair days till summer lasts. If you want them to get better, mix some aloe vera gel with olive oil and massage it into the hair. Wash it and you’ll see results immediately.
5. You can also drink aloe vera for an upset stomach
If you didn’t know then let me tell you that you can drink one or two tablespoons of aloe vera. It helps in digestion, heartburn and even an upset stomach.
6. Use it as a natural make-up remover
Removing makeup is one hell of a task. But aloe vera has sorted that for you. Ditch the chemical based makeup removers and adopt this plant. It removes makeup quite efficiently and moisturises the skin in the process.
