Homemade Aloe Vera gel


Finally back on blogoshpere!!!
Like I told you in my previous post I was in Europe for a friends wedding and to search for our wedding location. We have been so busy that I didn't even have the time to take pictures but I must say that 10 computer free days kind of felt good ;) 

Lately I have been looking more into a healthy lifestyle and except for trying to eat organic as much as possible, I have also started to make my own beauty products such as masks, scrubs and creams. To start this homemade beauty series on Fashion Gourmet, here is an extremely simple recipe for Aloe Vera moisturizing gel. Here in Singapore we can buy Aloe Vera leaves at any supermarket.

Method:
*Take 1 Aloe Vera leaf and peel the outer part of it
*With a spoon scoop out the gelatinous substance and pour into an empty container
*Refrigerate for a cooler effect on the skin
*Apply on all the body to moisturize


Benefits:
Aloe Vera can soothe the skin from sunburns and skin irritations, it is an excellent moisturizer and can be applied all over the body daily.

  18. Aloe vera and me go together like 2 peas in a pod. But just want to let you know to look into freeze crying the gel because the healing component of the aloe gel immediately dissipates after extraction. The only way to keep it in the gel is to freeze dry. Hope this helps!
