Aloe vera has always been considered a good cosmetic remedy for restoring skin, returning youth, strength, elasticity and health. Extract of this plant in its composition contain many cosmetics for skin care of the face, body and hair. But there is a cheaper way to get a healing remedy - to prepare a substance at home. And if you have such a house plant growing on the window, then the mask of aloe will not cost you anything.
The use of aloe for skin
The pulp of the plant contains a nutritious liquid( juice), in which there are a lot of vitamins and other useful components. This liquid has excellent anti-inflammatory, antiseptic and cleansing properties. Everyone knows that a small plate of fresh plant flesh promotes the rapid removal of suppuration from the wound, also affects the regeneration of tissues( which leads to the rapid healing of abscesses, burns or open wounds).The same curative effect is provided by aloe juice on the problem skin.

Aloe vera remedies have no age limitations and affect any condition of the tissues. For mature skin, the plant extract is useful in the repair of cell membranes, additional nutrition and rejuvenation of tissues, as well as for general toning of the skin.
Cooking Aloe Vera
We need fresh juice from the leaves of the plant. For this, we choose fleshy old processes closer to the base( these shoots are more saturated with useful substances).Your room plant should be at least three years old, otherwise the miracle of the extract will not be complete. Before cutting off the shoots, the plant should preferably be watered for 14 days.
Cut my leaves from the plant, caress them in boiled water, wrap them in a paper towel, a napkin or cloth and send it to the refrigerator( for 10-14 days).Why this, you ask? But under such conditions, a special biostimulator begins to develop in the leaves, which induces cells to metabolize and restore, blocking the process of aging and tissue death. And this is very important for the fading skin.
When the "aging" time has elapsed, skip the prepared aloe leaves through the meat grinder, squeeze the juice, strain the liquid and place it again in the refrigerator. The substance can be used for the next 14 days. The extract can be applied directly to the skin with a cotton swab or add to the main cosmetic facial skin care product( cream, mask, tonic, milk).
