10 Spectacular Uses for Aloe Vera
Currently Aloe Vera is a vital ingredient in different home remedy preparations, whether administered orally or applied to the skin. Below we are going to tell you how you can use it.
1. Skin remedies
One of the most special uses for this natural product is skin care, either for burns or improving scars, because the gel it contains noticeably accelerate the healing process, and improves blood circulation to the area around the wounds.
It also fills a good role for protecting against UV rays. Apply aloe vera cream a few minutes before sun exposure to protect yourself.
2. Alleviates constipation
Aloe Vera latex is recommended for inducing diarrhea, purging the body to clean the intestines. It is not recommendable to use this frequently, because frequent use could cause it to lose effectiveness in the intestines.
3. Alleviates oral problems
Aloe vera pulp alleviates ulcers, gingivitis or stomatitis with just a few simple steps: just crush it and rub into your mouth. Make sure it comes into contact with the wound.
4. Fights colon problems
If you suffer from your colon, we have a recipe for you that will help reduce the discomfort and stomach burning; it consists of mixing honey, orange juice, one tablespoon of Aloe Vera, and one glass of water. Drink it daily before breakfast for best results.
5. Helps prevent acne
Thanks to the fact that Aloe Vera contains anti-inflammatory properties, it is a great ingredient against acne. Get a soap, a cream, and a lotion that contains aloe vera and use them morning and night. This will help not only for the pimples, but it will also control the amount of grease that accumulates on your face. Likewise, you could also use Aloe Vera gel on your pimples to reduce the swelling.
You could also apply Aloe Vera gel on the areas you have acne, to soften and regenerate the skin.
6. Helps reduce cellulite
Because Aloe Vera has greats benefits on the dermatological level, it is commonly used against cellulite. Let us point out that by itself it isn’t a strong remedy, because you need to exercise, eat a balanced diet and massage your legs regularly.
7. Beneficial for your hair
Just like for the skin, Aloe Vera protects the hair from sun, and the scalp from UV rays. It equally protects it from daily harshness, like the drier and the flat iron, rain, oils and dryness, and makes it shinier and silkier.
8. Eliminates dandruff
Washing your hair with Aloe Vera removes dandruff from the skin, so that all you need to do is brush your hair to completely eliminate the dandruff. Repeat it a few times, and you’ll notice fantastic results.
9. An excellent relaxant
Aloe Vera contains anesthetic properties that relax the muscles in the head. Whenever you wash your hair, give your scalp a good massage. This will release stress.
10. Works for weight loss
Because this plant has cleansing properties, Aloe Vera is great for weight loss. When mixed with lemon, you’ll have cleansing properties along with detoxifying properties. That’s why we really recommend a smoothie with the following ingredients:
- 1 medium aloe leaf, cut into pieces with the spines removed
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- Juice from one lemon
Blend all ingredients and strain. Drink when you just wake up so that you’ve already digested it a bit by the time you eat breakfast. For better effects, also eat a healthy diet and maintain an exercise routine at least three days a week.
