Aloe vera has been used in herbal medicine and beauty applications for simply ages, like forever. It is a magical plant that contains water, mineral and special little compounds. The compounds –like lectins, mannans and polysaccharides – are very beneficial to skin, which makes aloe vera an ideal ingredient in face packs. And because it’s easily mixed with lots of other beneficial ingredients, there are aloe vera face masks for all skin types.
1. Use This Aloe Vera Face Mask if You Have Dry Skin
2 Tbsp fresh aloe vera
1-2 inches of cucumber
2 tbsp Cottage cheese
4 seedless dates
A good squeeze of fresh lemon juice
How to make and use:
Put the cottage cheese and aloe vera in a blender and mix. Add the dates, cucumber and lemon and blend until it forms a smooth paste. Apply the paste to your face and upper neck and leave it on for up to 30 minutes. Then, rinse with cold water, followed by a rinse in lukewarm water and finish with a cold water rinse. It feels really nice if you use it from the fridge where it can be kept for a couple of weeks.
