To make aloe vera gel, all you need is a healthy aloe plant (Aloe barbadensis). The procedure is simple: 1. It is important to start with clean hands. Also, use clean making utensils so that the gel does not become contaminated. 2. Cut off the outer leaf of the plant (the outer leaves are more mature). There will be enough fresh, healthy gel in the leaf. Since aloe gel is easily perishable, it is best to prepare a smaller amount. A leaf or two, especially if they are larger, is enough for half a cup to a cup of gel. And if you have a young plant, be careful not to cut too much at once, because that way you can damage it. 3. Squeeze the juice Place the leaves in a cup and let the juice drain. The juice contains latex, which can be irritating to the skin, so it is best to squeeze it. Peel the leaves It is best to use a vegetable peeler to remove the outer green part of the leaf. Peel carefully until you reach the gel in the middle of the leaf. 5. Grasp the gel with a small spoon The transparent soft gel is easy to separate from the leaves with a spoon. Take as much as there is and put it in a clean container.
6. Mix the gel with a natural preservative (eg vitamin C) If you get more gel and want to keep it for a month or two, mix 500 mg of vitamin C for each cup or add a few drops of oil with vitamin E. Mix the ingredients (you can also use a blender). 7. Pour the gel into a sterilized glass container If you have used any of the food storage products, you can store the gel in the refrigerator for a month or two. Without a natural preservative, the gel can be used for a week. 8. Use gel You can use the gel to hydrate the skin. You can prepare other home remedies from it, and it is best to use it for superficial skin irritations. You can mix ½ cups of aloe with ¼ cups of melted coconut oil - this way you will get a healing moisturizing lotion. And this is how aloe vera gel is used to remove wrinkles Massage a little gel directly on the skin. Do it gently and gently massage for about 3 minutes. You can also add one capsule of vitamin E to one teaspoon of gel. Stir and use to massage the face or the area where wrinkles appear (it can also be used for décolleté). Massage your skin regularly every night before bed. You will notice an improvement after a few days.
