Let’s make your own Aloe Vera Oil!
Before we start, I’d like to share the reason why we should make our own skincare. If we compare skincare with the food we eat, the ready-made skincare is like the canned food that had been produced in a large quantity with added chemicals in order to lengthen the shelf life of the products. Also, they usually have the ingredients that make products more appealing to the consumer but the truth is our skin might not need those. On the other hand, the fresh ingredients, fresh plants have lots of nutrition that we need. More importantly, they have not been destroyed by heat or chemical so our skin can get the full benefit from the nutrition provided. Therefore, we should try to find the time to create our own DIY skincare from fresh ingredients ourselves because the truth is, it’s so easy to do and very affordable.
Today I’d like to introduce the Aloe Vera Oil formula which is so good for all skin type and can be used with every part of the body from head to toe and you can eat it as well. The end result is no different at all to those expensive, ready-made skincare.
