Aloe Vera has so many different benefits for your skin, hair, and health, both internally and externally it’s something everyone should have in their home.

Some people even call it a miracle plant because of its truly amazing effects. The best way to take advantage of all of its benefits is to use it straight from the leaf of the plant.

Here are 7 DIY Aloe Vera hacks that you can add to your beauty routine today.

1. Treat Acne

Suffering from acne is bad, but having acne scars can be even worse. But did you know Aloe Vera gel (the gel found within the center of the leaves) can aid your skin and help it heal much quicker ridding you of those dreaded zits?

Apply the Aloe gel directly onto any affected areas of the skin and leave it on overnight. The vitamins C and E you get from the plant helps reduce redness and will help to heal your skin.

2. Eyebrow Gel

If you’re looking for a super affordable eyebrow gel to keep unruly eyebrows under control, Aloe Vera gel is the one you need.

Simply dip a small brush in the Aloe gel and brush it over your brows. It will keep your brows in place all throughout the day without leaving a sticky residue.

3. Hair Conditioner

Aloe Vera is famous for doing wonders for all types of hair. Not only does it add shine and moisture, but it also acts as a natural deep conditioner.

Apply the gel from the roots to the ends of your hair for a deep treatment. Leave it on for 15 minutes then rinse your hair as you would normally. This will make your hair smooth and shiny.

4. Skin Moisturizer

One of the best things about Aloe Vera is that it can also serve as a great skin moisturizer especially during the dry heat of the summer.

It’s lightweight on your skin, yet still adds an extra layer of moisture. You can also use it as a makeup primer to fill in any small wrinkles and pores. It helps create a smoother skin surface and prepares your face for applying makeup.

5. Exfoliator

A skin care regimen wouldn’t be complete without proper exfoliation. The problem is they are expensive.

However, Aloe Vera can also act as an exfoliator. Just mix one part Aloe to two parts sugar. Rub the mixture on your skin in a circular motion. Using this on your face or body can help soften and reveal fresh glowing skin.

6. Makeup Remover

You can say goodbye to makeup removers that have harsh chemicals in them.  You can use Aloe Vera instead and condition your skin while removing your makeup.

Just dip a cotton ball in the Aloe Vera gel and use it to gently wipe the makeup from your eyes and face. It will leave your skin feeling fresh and smooth and not dry like other makeup removers can.

7. Shaving Gel

You can also use Aloe Vera as a natural shaving gel alternative. Not only will it allow for a close shave, but it will also moisturize and soothe your skin while doing it.

Bonus:  8. Dandruff

Aloe Vera has been proven effective against several species of fungi and can help with any fungal infections that cause dandruff and hair loss.
