my beauty secret - aloe vera
I used to wash my face with facial wash followed by a toner, since I was in high school. So I have a clear skin free from black heads, white heads and pimples. Now that I am a mom, I sometimes forget to wash my face because of my busy schedule. Until one day, I looked closely at the mirror and found a dry face with dark eye spots, whiteheads, blackheads and surprised to see enlarged pores. I was devastated and realized that I have forgotten to take care of my clear skin. So I searched on the web on a solution on how to revive my skin. Then I came to read on an article about “Aloe Vera.”
Aloe Vera is known as the “Nature’s Band Aid,” for it was used to heal burns and wounds even in the olden times. It is also used to heal certain diseases when orally taken. But I was surprised to have found out that it will make your skin soft and supple. It was used in most beauty products. So I bought a plant and started to use it on my face. Every night, after washing my face, I cut a piece of leaf and apply the sticky clear substance on my face and leave it overnight - like a moisturizer. (Don’t use the yellowish liquid. It is a sap that resides below the leaf when you cut it. It is known to be an irritant for sensitive skin.) After one week of using it, I was amazed to see a glowing complexion. My large pores were starting to shrink and blackheads started to disappear. My cheeks turn a bit pinkish. I thank God for helping me discover this nature’s beauty secret! And the best part is, it does not contain harmful preservatives and chemicals – it’s all safe and natural!
