My favorite succulent is the aloe vera plant. The picture above is an actual picture of two of my aloe plants. I have not one, not two, but three huge plants. It is and will always be my go-to beauty product. The benefits are amazing! Soothe sunburn, moisturize, skin tightener, accelerate wounding healing are a few of the reasons I use this awesome plant also used by the infamous Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt…talk about girl boss!
Below are my two favorite and simple beauty uses:
- On a clean face, simply cut a small piece of aloe vera, take out the gel and apply directly on your skin. It will dry quickly. Leave on overnight and wash your face with warm water in the morning.
- Skin tightener: There are four ingredients that make up my toner and it’s so easy to make. It helps tighten pores, remove toxins, reduce redness and moisturize. Combine one cup rose water (you can use regular water if preferred), a tablespoon of aloe vera gel, 2 green tea bags (steep for a few minutes), and 1/4 cup alcohol free witch hazel.
Don’t cover it, care for it!
