The Benefits of Aloe Vera on the Skin

Aloe Vera is a miracle wonder plant. I love it so much! It is just amazing. I have used Aloe Vera on and off for many years now, and I am always blown away by how effective it is. Back then, I extracted the gel directly from the plant and applied it straight to my hair. I did that for years and my hair was so healthy. It is one of those natural ingredients I have always enjoyed using. I am gradually incorporating more and more natural products into my life, and Aloe Vera is one of my current favourites.

I started using Aloe Vera on my hair to help it stay healthy. I have also recently started using it on my skin and it has changed my skin for the better. Aloe Vera has been so good to my skin that I can’t imagine not using it anymore. I am currently using this Aloe Vera Moisturising Lotion by Forever Living and it is so good. You can read the full review of the lotion if you missed the product review post.

The Benefits of Aloe Vera on the Skin

Here are the top 5 benefits of Aloe Vere on the skin –

Soothes sunburn

Aloe Vera is great for soothing sunburn because it has cooling properties and is anti-inflammatory. It is a natural remedy for sunburn and helps heal the skin quickly.

Moisturises the skin

It works great as a skin moisturiser. It can be tricky to apply since it usually does not absorb into the skin quickly. However, once it is applied properly, it leaves the skin moisturised and hydrated. It also unclogs the pores and leaves the skin soft and supple.

Fights anti-ageing

Aloe Vera creams and lotions work great for dealing with signs of ageing. The products leave you looking younger by reducing and preventing signs of skin ageing.

Lightens blemishes

Aloe Vera gradually lightens blemishes on the skin. I have noticed a massive difference on my skin since I started using this Aloe Vera Moisturising lotion.

Reduces acne

Another great benefit of Aloe Vera is that it reduces acne. The antimicrobial properties in it treat the pimples. It is also antiseptic, which also helps. Aloe Vera also works as an astringent that helps reduce the size of pores, gets rid of excess sebum, microbes, and dirt.

How to Wash Your Face Like Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn is fashion goals all day every day but she is also a beauty muse. I love staring at her gorgeous face. She was one hell of a beauty. Audrey Hepburn beauty/skincare tips are always a reading pleasure. I love trying out her skincare tips. They always work so well for me. Recently, I came across some of her face wash tips and I have been washing my face just like that. The steps are quite easy to follow and very straightforward. You may find that you have been unconsciously washing your face like this the whole time and not realise our very own Audrey Hepburn recommended these same steps.

How to Wash Your Face Like Audrey Hepburn
Immerse the soap bar in hot water

The first step is to immerse your soap bar in hot water that is comfortable to touch. Then rub the soap bar gently over the face. After rubbing the soap bar all over the face, dip the soap bar again into the hot water and make a rich lather in your hands.

Massage lather over the face

The next step is to massage lather over the face.

Splash the face 20 times with the hot water

Once the lather has been massaged all over the face, splash the face 20 times with the hot water. Remember this water must be comfortable to touch, so not too hot. It is best to mix some hot water in a container so you are sure you have the right temperature.

Splash the face 10 times hot running water

This is the tricky bit, splashing the face 10 times with hot running water is the next step. I do this step quickly so the water does not get too hot.

Pat dry

The final step is patting the face dry with a very soft towel. Don’t be tempted to rub as this could your skin do more harm than good.

What is beauty really about?

There are so many articles and books about what beauty is and what makes us beautiful. Sometimes the tips and advice in these sources can be very conflicting, which ends us leaving us even more confused. What is beauty really about? To answer this question, I love John Kenneth Galbraith’s quote – There is certainly no absolute standard of beauty. That precisely is what makes its pursuit so interesting. There is no straight way of achieving beauty and there is no absolute standard of beauty. It is different for everyone, which is why we really should take these words of advice with a pinch of salt and work out which of the tips work for us.

Dealing with a bad day image

Every woman has her own beauty and I believe every woman is her own version of beautiful. I love the saying – Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. We really should remember that when we look at these fancy magazines with models wearing perfect makeup.

Here are 2 ideas of what beauty is really about –

Being happy in yourself

Being happy in yourself is one of the most important beauty tips anyone could ever give. It can be tricky sometimes but being really happy is the most important beauty advice of all. Do whatever makes you happy in yourself.

Accepting your features

Embrace all that makes you you. Accept your features, fall in love with each and every one of them. Get to know them, get to understand how to work with them.

Living is more enjoyable than appearing

There is a lot more to a beautiful face. It pays to have an attractive face and I am not playing it down in anyway. However, I am usually more interested in the person behind the face. There is a lot more to a pretty face. As cliche as it sounds, beauty comes from within, living is way more enjoyable than appearing, so we should remember to live and not focus on just looking the part.

The luxury skincare and makeup products will not make you as attractive as you think if you are ugly on the inside. They may do little or nothing if that is all you are focusing on. It is easy to get obsessed with our looks, but we should remember not to neglect other parts that make us who we are. Which is why we should focus on our inside as much as we focus on our outside. Beauty is only skin deep, but real ugly goes clear to the bone.
