I know you guys now must be used to of reading about this product on wiseshe but I am so obsessed with aloevera that I recommend to to every one.We on wise she have done many post on aloe vera which includes.
Some of the readers who are living outside India find it difficult to get pure aloe vera gel.Therefore I thought of sharing a recipe of home made aloe vera gel.
You know aloe vera was beauty secret of Cleopatra as well.Aloe vera is considered as a natural healer provided it is pure.
Step1-Cut mature thick leaves of a mature plant and cut them from the bottom.
-Now using a sharp knife cut off the edges as well as tip of the leaf.You can see the video here
Step3-Don’t juice the gel in a mixer grinder when you scoop out the gel .Wash the gel so that the yellow residue which comes with the gel is completely removed.
Step4-Now add 500mg of vitamin C tablets and 400IU of vitamin E to every 1/4th cup of aloe vera.You will have to crush the vitamin C tablets and then add it to the the aloe vera pulp.Squeeze off vitamin E capsules in the pulp.Both these ingredients will give your skin required nutrients and proteins and act as a preservative too.
Step5-Now blend the whole mixture and store in a air tight glass jar.Store it in your refrigerator.
This gel will last for six month.If you have oily skin like me then you can use it as your night cream as well.I am not sure about dry skin people they might require additional moisturization with the gel.
