How I Use My Aloe Vera Gel | Lenne Zulkiflly

You have probably heard about aloe vera and the wonders of it. Apparently, it is a magical plant that has enormous number of benefits. I have been on my healthy skin journey because of aloe vera. It  has become my favorite skincare discovery. I am obsessed with anything aloe vera basically, because it is THAT good.

How I Use My Aloe Vera Gel | Lenne Zulkiflly

Anyway, this is the aloe vera gel I am currently using. I definitely used the heck out of this gigantic tube! I got this baby from Guardian for RM20, and you can get this at Guardian only. You can totally make any aloe vera gel work, be it from a different brand or straight from the plant, but my skin loves this one so much! 

Treating puffiness 


Aloe vera is very much helpful in treating puffiness of your eyes. Just grab aloe vera gel and dab on your under eye erea. It helps a lot especially in the morning. 

Healing wounds


If you have any wounds, blisters or cuts (like I always do) on your skin, just rub the aloe vera gel gently on the affected area to heal them fast. It is true because I have tried it quite few times ;)

A lip treatment 


You guys know my drying... It is the worst that can happen to me because I love to rock liquid lipsticks. To combat dry and chapped lips, I just apply the aloe vera gel on the lips to hydrate and heal them. Sometimes when I feel extra fancy schmancy, I love to mix it with a little bit of olive oil and it works wonders as a lip balm! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

Removing dandruff 


I know that aloe vera gel is very multi purpose and multi function. So I tried to apply the gel in the front area of my hair and scalp and tell you what, it did a great job at removing my stubborn dandruff! 


Removing acne 


Seems impossible? But nah, it worked. Apply the aloe vera gel on the acne affected skin and acne will surely lessen in just few days. It reduces the swelling, inflammation and prevents further break out. A little FYI, I haven't gotten acne for weeks. 


Soothe sunburn


Aloe vera gel is the perfect remedy for sunburned skin because it has cooling properties and anti-inflammatory. It heals the skin from layer to layer and helps to retain moisture from there. I go to campus by motorcycle, so aloe vera gel is definitely a gem because it gets the job done y'know. I apply it all over the face, hands, arms and feet. No sunburn skin no more! 

A makeup remover 


I have had a hard time finding the best makeup remover for my skin because I have oily skin type and most makeup remover at stores are oil-based. So, I have a friend that uses aloe vera gel as her makeup remover and I thought maybe I can give it a go. And yes gurl, it is a simple and effective alternative if you are facing the same problem as me. I just dip my cotton pad into the aloe vera gel and swipe away the day. It does not feel sticky, greasy or whatsoever. So fresh so clean!

A moisturizer 


If you don't already know, aloe vera gel can also act as a moisturizer. I have been using my aloe gel as a moisturizer for years now. It suits well my skin, I have had hard times finding the perfect moisturizer for my skin type and I guess I have found the one. 

What is your favorite aloe tips?

  1. Fatin pulak tak boleh sapu gel aloe vera tu kat muka banyak sangat, contohnya seluruh muka la. Ni pakai yang dari pokok lidah buaya tu. hehe sebab kat rumah fatin tanam pokok tu. Ada jugak dengar-dengar aloe vera gel ni boleh hilangkan parut jerawat. Tak tahu betul-betul berkesan atau tak. Belum konsisten pakai lagi. Hehehe :D

    1. Yes babe. Aloe vera can be used before applying makeup. Just apply a thin layer until it absorbs into the skin and your face will feel slightly tacky then just continue with your makeup routine :)
