Aloe vera contains vitamins, minerals, amino acid and antioxidants that work wonders for the skin.  Aloe vera contains powerful antioxidants that belong to a family of substances known as polyphenols. The presence of polyphenols in aloe vera help to restrict the growth of bacteria on the skin and on the scalp that can cause infections and inflammation. The antimicrobial properties of aloe vera also prevent acne and reduce the redness and inflammation caused by acne. One of the best parts about aloe vera is that it can be used by people of all skin types.

How to Extract the Gel from the Aloe Vera Leaf?
  • Cut a leaf from the plant with the help of a knife at the base of a plant.
  • Once you cut a leaf you will see a yellow coloured gel will begin to ooze out from the cut. The yellow coloured product that oozes out from the leaf is a sap called aloe latex.
  • Keep the leaf in an upright position and let the latex drain out from the leaf. It will take around 15 minutes.
  • After 15 minutes wash the leaf properly and dry it on a kitchen towel.
  • By this time the sap must have drained completely so lay the leaf flat on a kitchen board and cut the thorny side from the sides of the leaf.
  • With your leaf laying flat on a cutting board, carefully slice away the skin of the aloe vera leaf by running the knife from the centre of the leaf.
  • Now take a spoon and extract the gel by scooping out the gel from the leaf.
  • You can use as many leaves to extract the gel and you can store the gel in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.

I personally like to extract fresh gel every time I need it. It looks like a task but once you get a hang of it, it will hardly take you 5 minutes to get the gel out from the leaf.6 Amazing Aloe Vera Face Masks for Bright and Radiant SkinBenefits of Aloe Vera Face Mask:
