    Benefits Of Aloe Vera For Skin

    • Possesses antioxidant and antibacterial properties
    • Prevents ageing 
    • Moisturises skin
    • Soothe sunburn
    • Reduces irritation
    • Reduces tan
    • Helps to lighten acne scars, dark spots, and blemishes

    How To Make Aloe Vera Gel At Home

    • The first and foremost thing one needs to understand is to pick the leaves carefully. Typically, the leaves in the middle of the plant are juicier, softer, and widest. Hence, they contain more aloe vera gel in them. Choose those.
    • Pick out a leaf and wash it with water. 
    • Now make it stand upright for about 15 minutes so that the sap drains out. The sap is basically a yellow-coloured liquid that oozes out when you cut the leaf. Therefore, you need to allow it drain completely before extracting aloe vera gel. 
    • Next, wash the leaf again. 
    • Lay it flat on a cutting board. Now, carefully cut both the sides of the leaf. Ensure that you do not hurt yourself while cutting the sides as they might have thorns. 
    • Once done, peel off the top layer of the leaf and cut the leaf into small cubes. 
    • Now, take a spoon and scoop out the gel from the cubes. Transfer it to an air-tight container and store it for future use.
    • You can follow the same procedure with more leaves and use this gel regularly for soft and glowing skin.
