Today’s article is going to be on aloe vera beauty hacks. Now for all those people who think that aloe vera is just for curing sunburns, you guys are wrong because that’s not the only thing that it does. In fact you are going to be surprised at the things that aloe vera can do. I would advice getting your own aloe vera plant. It doesn’t really require much care. Only a little water and lots of sunlight. And the things that it can do for you, you would probably want to take care of it all day long.
Now let’s move on straight to the hacks –
1. Cure for Puffy Eyes-
Now,waking up with puffy eyes is probably one of the most common problem. And guess what, there’s a very easy solution for that. All you need to do is to simply apply some aloe vera gel under the eyes before sleeping and leave it overnight. In the morning rinse it off with water.
2. Aids in Glowing Skin
Applying a little bit of aloe vera gel daily on your face will give you a glowing skin. I apply it before sleeping,all over my face and leave it overnight,and then wash it off in the morning. For people with dry skin,you can mix aloe vera gel with glycerine in equal parts and then apply it on your face.
3. As a Mouthwash –
Aloe vera as a mouthwash works wonderfully to give you a fresh breath all day long. All you need to do is to take a glass of water. Mix in it about a teaspoon of baking soda, a few drops of lemon and a tablespoon of aloe vera. (I would strongly recommend to use fresh aloe vera gel.I use the one plucked from the plant i have and then by scooping the gel out of the leaf.) Mix all the ingredients really well and your own DIY mouthwash is ready for use.
4. For a Smooth Shave and as an Aftershave –
When you are using a razor to shave your hands or legs,you need to be extra careful as to not to hurt yourself.There are times when you do not have time for waxing and simply use a razor on your hands and legs.For those times, simply apply a layer of aloe vera on the area that you are going to shave.You would be left with a very smooth skin. After you are done shaving, apply some more aloe vera as an aftershave. It helps to soothe any inflammation on the skin.
5. Helps Cure ACNE-
Aloe vera contains an array of minerals which help in curing acne.It has the soothing power which is why it helps in curing sunburns.Simply take some aloe vera gel and apply it directly on thr acne. You should do it for a week to see the results.People who have acne prone skin should drink aloe vera juice and apply aloe vera gel on the face on a daily basis.
6. To soothe Cracked Heel–
Take aloe vera gel and apply it directly on the cracked heel. It will soothe the skin and will aid in quick healing.

Aloe vera is a dandruff fighter. To apply it all you need to do is wet your hairs with aloe vera gel at night and rinse it off in the morning. Make sure you are applying the aloe vera gel at the root of the hairs.
9. Wrinkle Repair –
Aloe vera helps in repairing wrinkles. It delivers vitamin A and Vitamin E into the skin 4 times faster than any other wrinkle repairing product.

10. Fades Stretch Marks-
