Babydoll Beauty Secret: For the Love of Aloe Vera

aloeMy of my favorites right now is aloe vera. I only ever used it in the summer until I learned of all of the amazing uses it has. I tried to grow it and use it fresh but my cat kept chewing on the leaf so I have to use the gel. But come summer I stock up on the gel to use all year (it’s always on sale and I love a good deal). Of course we all know the uses it is has for burns and help soothing them. But many people didn’t know how many other uses aloe vera has. Some of these uses cannot utilized when using the gel but they are still good to know for whenever you may need them.

 

Regulates your weight. By drinking aloe vera juice helps clean your digestive system which can help regulate your weight. I love this one because with someone who suffers from digestive disorders I love anything natural that can help.

Treats sunburns or burns from minor mishaps in the kitchen. We all know this one. If you have a sunburn (and we’re hoping this doesn’t happen very often) or a burn from cooking (this happens too many times for me) applying aloe vera (gel or straight from the plant) helps soothe the burn.

Dandruff. For those who suffer from either kind of dandruff have probably been suggested to use a harsh shampoo to help dry out the scalp but this also unfortunately dries out your hair as well. A more natural way to help dandruff is aloe vera. With its concentrated mixture of vitamins and minerals and moisturizing properties are exactly what a scalp needs in order to normalize and rid itself of the dandruff. Aloe Vera also contains something called pectin. The pectin in aloe vera has special properties that act as a type of “ce91654b1dd8d105dd63c0d8b34a8fe969ll cement” that causes cells to be stimulated, divide and grow. The fresh, healthy cells result in a fresh, healthy scalp.

Brightens the skin. If your skin has been looking a little dull or if you have dark spots, try using aloe vera. Due to its properties it can give you a natural glow and help decrease dark spots. And it leaves your skin feeling smooth and refreshed.

Ends Constipation or Indigestion. Due to the natural fibers contained in the juice, it can improve your bowel movement, thus improving the digestion process.

Treat Pimples and Acne. 

I love when I incorporated aloe vera/aloe vera gel in my regular beauty/health routine from my digestive system to my skin. And the best part is, I actually saw results. So with summer upon us stock up at your local drug store or even try growing some and hopefully your fur babies won’t try to eat it like mine did.

It can be frustrating when dealing with already dry skin and then trying product after product that say they will help but then never do.

Embryolisse Foaming Cream-Milk (Lait-Creme Moussant) is a soap-free wash that cleans and refreshes your skin instead of leaving your skin dry and crying out for moisture. This product is also great because it’s sensitive enough for all skin types! Thanks to Micky we’re able to get the best of both worlds!

Babydoll Beauty Secrets: Hydration!


It’s starting to get warmer so don’t forget to drink enough water to keep your skin soft and healthy! If drinking a bunch plain water sounds boring then add some lemon, lime, or berries to add some flavor. Just let them soak in a pitcher of water for a while (if you added berries you can strain the water as well) before enjoying. I have found that overnight is the perfect amount of time! – Amanda
