We discovered what we consider another sensational beauty and health aid.
One of our guests was talking about her beauty regimen in the mornings. She was sharing because when she arrived she asked if she could put her Aloe Vera Gel and Aloe Vera Juice in the refrigerator. She was carrying it in one of those lined bags in which you can keep things cold. Because we are curious, over breakfast, we asked what she did with her bottles. She is the first person to arrive carrying her own Aloe Vera and we were all ears with lots of questions about her answer.
She uses the Aloe Vera Gel in the mornings after her shower to give herself an all-over massage – she said for health reasons, but her skin was glowing. After she gives herself a massage she waits a few minutes for the Aloe Vera to be absorbed into her skin and then gets dressed for the day. Many questions followed.
What does it do? She didn’t know, but if it is good for burns, etc. she decided it must be good for wrinkles and general health and she feels and looks good after her morning shower. She brought the bottles out of the refrigerator and we were impressed that the Gel and Juice contained nothing but the Aloe Vera plant.
A couple years ago, I remember a guest from Australia telling me she used Aloe Vera Gel after bathing the way other people use lotion. It didn’t register at the time. Maybe the second telling by another person helped open our ears.
I’ve tried it for about a month now and it is GREAT! I tried her way – which was to alternate between using the Gel and the Juice, but I made such a mess with the juice we had to shampoo the rugs in the bedroom and give the bathroom a good cleaning. I’ve decided to stick to the Gel and alternate it with milk baths, milk facials and Vitamin A and E facials and massages. I don’t want my skin to get used to one thing and then have that stop working after a while. Variety is a great beautifier.
The Gel – after a couple weeks – gave my skin a softness and a glow which it hasn’t had for a lot of years. Another guest is trying it and she has promised to let me know if it does anything special for her. She is 83 years old and has lots of wrinkles so she should be a great test case. I hope she doesn’t take offense, but if it works on her and smoothes the wrinkles and improves her health, it should work on those much younger.
I might add that we pass these ideas along that we’ve heard about and that we try and friends and other guests try, but they and you do so at their and your own risk.
Since we are talking about organic food (yes, the Aloe Vera Gel and Juice must be organic), there should be no harm done, but just in case, don’t go off trying something because we talk about it on this blog. From the writing on the Aloe Vera Gel bottle, the company apparently assumes you bought it to drink. We haven’t gone that far – although we know anything you put on your skin is in your bloodstream in seconds.
Before we use any beauty products, we make sure we can, at least, pronounce and know the names of all ingredients in any and everything we put on our skin – or use to wash our hair. Since we have a long acquaintance with the Aloe Vera Plant we didn’t have any hesitation trying either the Aloe Vera Gel or the Aloe Vera Juice.
