Forget About Sunburns, Acne and Scars with this Homemade Gel

Aloe vera and coconut oil are two of the most powerful ingredients that provide numerous benefits to your skin and entire body. They are both used in body lotions, but separately. However, when combined, they can do wonders.

Aloe vera is known to be rich in vitamins and minerals, amino acids and fatty acids and is also an adaptogen, meaning that it boosts your ability to adapt in different circumstances. Aloe vera is also your friend in the process of digestion and can also be used to alkalize your body. If you have thought about getting the toxins out of your body, this gelatin food can help you do it better and easily. Aloe vera’s gel moves through your body, absorbing toxins out of your intestine and eliminating them through the colon. At the same time, you can use aloe vera to improve your immune system.

Coconut oil is the other ingredient that not only makes your skin look better, but, when consumed internally, it does wonders. It helps with your energy levels and also with weight issues. Coconut is also consumed to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. People that consume coconut on a regular basis are proved to be healthier than those who do not. This ingredient is also good for people suffering from heart diseases, as it improves the levels of bad cholesterol in your organism.

  • Taking care of sunburns

Ingredients needed for this fabulous homemade gel:

  • Essential oil (your choice) – lavender, rose, vanilla
  • 1/3 cup of aloe vera gel, pure, not juice
  • ½ cup solid coconut oil

How to make this gel

You take the aloe vera gel and the coconut oil and you mix them in a bowl using a teaspoon. You stir about 10 minutes or so and then you add some drops of essential oil. You stir some more until your mix has a bright color and the aspect of a cream. Then, you can remove the mix from the bowl into a recipient that has a lid. You close the lid and you place the recipient at room temperature.

How to use this cream

This product is easy to use. Pour some gel into your palm and apply it on your skin, just like any other regular body lotion. It is indicated to do this after showering, because your pores are open after using warm water.

If not, you can open your pores by using steam. Boil some water, put it in a bowl and stand with your face above the steam. If it burns too much, remove yourself for a couple of seconds and then do it again. This will open up your pores and let the cream do its job.
