What's more? These basic ingredients do not have any side effects and are therefore safe to use. However, there are certain pre-checks that one needs to do. For example, those with extremely or little sensitive skin should apply any face pack on their forearm and wait for 24 hours to see the results and then try it on their face.

Like we say, every skin is different and so are the effects! But there are several face packs that work the best for all skin types. One such pack is this aloe vera and turmeric face pack which works wonders for all skin types, giving you a radiant glow like never before.

Aloe vera, as we all know, is a commonly used ingredient in most cosmetic and herbal beauty products for the range of benefits it offers. Turmeric, on the other hand, has medicinal properties and has anti-inflammatory properties that help in reducing scars, pimples, and acne.

To get started, let us first learn how to extract aloe vera gel from the aloe vera plant - the reason being that freshly extracted aloe vera gel works better than previously gathered and preserved aloe vera paste.

How To Extract Aloe Vera Gel From The Plant

  • Pluck one leaf from the aloe vera plant.
  • Wash the leaf once before you get started with the gel extraction.
  • Keep the leaf on the cutting board and chop the sides. Chop the sides of the leaf carefully because it has horns, which might prick you.
  • Once cut, peel the green-coloured layer of the leaf and carefully extract the gel inside it.
  • Now, cut the transparent gel into small cubes and put it in a bowl and the aloe vera gel is ready to be used.

Now that we know how to extract aloe vera gel from the plant, let us begin with the ingredients required for this aloe vera-turmeric face pack.

  • Let the mixture rest for 5 minutes.
