Our 8 hours beauty sleep is crucial, no doubt, but what you do before dozing off can make a great difference to your skin! If brighter complexion is what you are aiming for, we suggest you try this overnight aloe vera face mask. It works like magic!
Fact check - Your skin loses more moisture and turns dull at night than any part of the day. Skin cells repair themselves and generate new cells at night, and the added nutrient in this herbal mask accelerates the skin healing process.
Ingredients included in this herbal aloe vera mask for radiant skin are aloe vera, vitamin E capsule, rose water and milk.
Aloe vera has allicin and antioxidants that penetrate deep into the skin layer, replenishing the skin of its lost moisture, bolstering collagen count and thereby preventing wrinkles.
Vitamin E lightens blemishes on the skin. Rose water tones skin. And milk has natural bleaching property that sloughs off the dead skin layers and brightens the complexion.
Now that you know how this ayurvedic aloe vera mask for brighter complexion works, have a look at the recipe on how to use it.
Here is the step-by-step guide on how to get glowing skin using aloe vera.
Dip a cotton ball in cold raw milk. Wring out the excess. And gently rub your skin with it. Let it stay for 5 minutes and then cleanse your face with cold water. Milk will remove your skin of the dirt residue, without disrupting its pH balance. And it will make your skin appear supper soft and smooth.
Pat your skin dry. Next, take another cotton ball, squeeze out some rose water onto it. And rub it gently onto your skin and neck. Let it get absorbed fully. Rose water helps to tone skin, close pores, remove any leftover residue and hydrate skin.
Cut the edges of one aloe vera leaf, slice it in half, using a fork, scoop out its content in a bowl. Place the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for 5 minutes and then take it out. Aloe vera repairs your skin and nourishes it.
Prick two vitamin E gel capsules and squeeze out the gel in a bowl. Add aloe vera gel to the bowl and using a fork, keep stirring it until both the ingredients combine well into one smooth paste.
In case if you have excessively dry skin, add a few drops of almond oil as well. It works as an excellent moisturiser. Add not more than 3 drops. And for oily skin with pimple problem, add 3 drops of tea tree oil. It has antibacterial properties that will kill the infection-causing bacteria.
Massage the mixture onto your skin. Stroke your skin in an upward direction, moving outwards. Do this for 2 to 5 minutes for the aloe vera face mask to penetrate better and for that added stimulation.
Let the aloe vera mask for clear skin sit overnight. In the morning, cleanse with a mild cleanser. One that is compatible with your skin type. Avoid using face wash that has alcohol in it, as it can strip your skin of its natural oil.
Massage your daily moisturiser on to your skin. Slap your skin gently a few times and tap it in a circular motion, using your finger tips. This simple step will get the blood flowing, giving your skin a dewy glow and making it appear brighter.
