How to make and apply an aloe vera mask
Aloe vera as a natural care for the skin of the face. Aloe vera is a succulent plant whose stems contain a precious substance. The gel collected inside has been used since Antiquity, both internally and in cosmetics. It contains antioxidants and many essential nutrients. Its virtues on the skin are numerous. Aloe vera is mainly known for its moisturizing properties. It acts in depth to compensate for water losses from the epidermis while leaving a thin protective layer on the surface.
Aloe vera gel also has a tightening effect: it smoothes the skin and limits its aging. Irritated skin will also particularly appreciate it since the pure aloe vera gel applied effectively soothes irritations. Daily, it relieves burning sensations and sunburn. It is, therefore, an essential beauty to keep in your refrigerator!
