Aloe Vera gel has been our steady companion during hot summer months and our saviour to painful sunburns. But with Christmas being basically around the corner (73 days!), it is now time to adjust your skincare routine to the colder months ahead. Before you start thinking about replacing your aloe vera gel, find out how you can use it during fall and winter!
Care For Your Hair
One benefit of aloe vera is its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antimicrobial nature. Applying the gel to your scalp can help with overall hair health and even reduce dandruff. It also can hold moisture which makes it perfect for keeping your hair hydrated in the colder months.
Tip: Combine a tablespoon of aloe vera gel with your shampoo to make a soothing hair mask. Leave it in overnight for shiny and nourished hair in the morning.
Say Goodbye To Dry Skin
Aloe Vera is probably best known for its moisturising properties, making it a staple in skincare routines. Especially people with dry or acne-prone skin like to make use of the plant. Aloe vera gel helps with these issues because it is soothing, nourishing and deeply hydrating due to vitamin C, E, and beta-carotene. Aloe is, therefore, a perfect product to use during fall and winter as our skin often gets dry and dehydrated.
Tip: Mix aloe vera gel with argan oil and apply the mixture like a mask for glowy and healthy skin.
Get Rid of Dead Skin Cells
