Who doesn’t like to look beautiful… that too without burning the pockets??? Huun???
Today’s magical beauty product doesn’t cost you much. All you need is to give the product a space to live and pour a mug of water to it everyday. Haha… Yes, the product I am talking about is natural and green. It’s the multi purpose plant – Aloe vera…!!!
Even though there are multiple brands out there, who have made packed aloe vera gel for us. But, I am sure they do have some kind of preservatives to preserve them from getting spoiled. Hence, planting a Aloe vera plant at your balcony is a great idea to get more benefits with no side effects.
It might not add that ‘beauty’ quotient to your balcony though. As leaves are prickly and bitter. I am sure you must have heard, bitterness is good for health. Umm I am talking about taste here…!!!
Without wasting much time lets jump into the list of benefits of this plant…
Wait a sec, you know how to use it right??? Just have to pluck a leaf, and slice it. The gel which you get is the magical product which we need to heal our beauty problems. The gel is made up of 96% water, some organic and inorganic compounds. It also contains a type of protein with 18 types of amino acids, Vitamin A, B, C and E. Pheww… So much this little plant carries huun, I must say…!!!
Ok, now lets jump to the list…!!!! #wink

One important thing to take care:
Dear reader, even though aloe vera is a great herb, it might or might not work for you. If you apply the gel directly to your skin you might get itching or allergies. Because some people are allergic to this gel.
So, I would suggest to try a patch test before applying it to whole face directly. You can also dilute the gal by adding some quantity of water and then use it on skin.
