DIY Remedy: 8 Natural Aloe Remedies You Must Try

We believe everyone must have heard how aloe vera is often used to soothe sunburn and aid in wound healing. But its healing property can actually do so much more than that. Here we reveal 8 aloe remedies you can try at home today.


#1 Skin moisturizing

When you crack an aloe vera blade, you will find a gel-like substance that is rich in beneficial nutrients for dry skin. These include vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that can reinforce the skin barrier and protect it. By combining an equal amount of aloe vera with any nourishing oil such as jojoba, you can get a softer, smoother, and healthier skin complexion. Put the mixture in a bottle, shake well and apply directly to your skin. Check out this simple 2-ingredient for aloe skin moisturizing here.
