Skin and Gut Health Hack Part 1.
I bet you have used this ingredient at some point. Myself living in South-East Queensland I am very familiar with this as a salve for my sunburnt skin as a teenager (sorry mum). Of course, I am talking about Aloe Vera This is fast becoming one of my favourite ingredients to use as it has SO many benefits. Which, might I add, does not involve purchasing any additional products, all which can be quite expensive.
I am going to go through 2 QUICK and EASY ways I incorporate Aloe Vera into my day-to- day to help with my skin, gut and digestion.
1. Aloe Vera Water
How I use it
Firstly, you’ll want to find some Aloe Vera Barbadensis around the house or find a neighbour with some).
This is the bit we want to keep .
OPTION You could use a piece of this fleshy aloe to put into a smoothie. Extra points!
2. Skin Treatment
From making our ‘aloe water’, we have those leftover skins off the aloe plant.
After I have washed and cleansed my face I rub this all over my face and the backs of my arms. It is such a soothing natural treatment that can be used for redness or just as an easy skin repairing treatment.
