How to use aloe vera for different skin types

By Glowpink Staff   

Aloe vera is one ingredient that you can use for all skin problems and there is no side effect. If you have aloe vera plant at home, you can easily extract aloe vera gel. I have already listed down the right way to extract aloe vera gel directly from the leaf in this article for your convenience. Guess what you can use aloe vera as it is or add it in your face masks to treat different skin conditions easily at the comfort of your home.


Process to extract aloe vera gel:

  1. Choose the leaves of the plant carefully, the leaves in the middle of the plant contains most of the gel as they leaf are juicer, soft and widest there.
  2. Cut the leaves at an angle from the base of the plant.
  3. Now, stand the leaves upright for 15 minutes to allow the sap to drain out. The sap is a yellow colored fluid which will ooze out the moment you cut the leaf. Allow it to drain out completely.
  4. Later on wash the leaves to remove the remaining sap from the leaves.
  5. Lay the leaves flat on cutting board and carefully cut the sides of the leaves which will contain thorns from both the sides of the leaves. Once that is done, you need to peel off the green layer of the leaf and dice the transparent gel into cubes.
  6. Alternatively, you can also slice the leaves into two halves lengthwise from top of bottom and scrape off the transparent gel with the help of the spoon.
