We all know aloe vera makes a great sunburn treatment. But don’t wait until you’re sunburned to include this plant into your beauty routine! Aloe is packed with all sorts of vitamins and enzymes that are great for skin and hair health, like vitamins A, C, and E. Have an aloe plant you want to harvest for these treatments? Here’s how.

Here are 3 of our favorite aloe beauty treatments you can make at home:

 

  1. Firming Face Mask:
    – 1 part aloe vera gel
    – 1 part plain greek yogurt
    – 1 part shredded cucumber

    Mix ingredients and apply a thin layer over your face, avoiding your eyes and mouth. Let sit for 20 minutes and rinse.

  2. Deep Conditioning Hair Mask:
    – 3 parts coconut oil
    – 2 parts aloe vera gel
    – 1 part honey

    Melt coconut oil if it’s not already liquid and blend ingredients together. Massage into hair and let sit for 30 minutes. Wash out with tepid water and a sulfate-free shampoo.

  3. Eyebrow and Eyelash Treatment:
    – 1 part aloe vera gel
    – 3 parts castor oil

    Mix ingredients together and dip a clean mascara brush into your mixture. Apply to eyebrows and eyelashes, being careful not to get it in your eye. Let sit for 30 minutes and rinse off with tepid water. Repeat daily for a few weeks for fuller brows and longer lashes!

While you’re letting your treatments set, close your eyes for a few moments to meditate, take some deep breaths, and check in with yourself.
