Recipe Archives: Aloe Vera Facial Mask

     If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I love all things related to creative culinary medicine. A friend of mine recently gave me an aloe vera plant. After doing some research, I discovered that the syrup from an aloe vera leaf contains nutrients that improve the health of your skin. I decided that instead of spending $40.00 on a facial, I would create a facial mask recipe! It’s frugal, creative, and fun! After trying it, my skin was tight, soft, supple, and glowing.

You’ll Need:

• 4 large aloe vera plant leaves

• 1 tablespoon of honey

• 1 bowl 

• 1 medium sized cooking knife 

• 1 spoon

• 1 hot hand towel 

Directions:

– Slice the thin parts of the leaf off & put them to the side

– Slice the thick parts of the plant leaf in half & separate 

– In your small bowl, take your knife & scoop out the gel of the plant (it’s okay to include the clear pieces of plant that may still be attached)

– After repeating this process on all of your leaves, add your honey & stir with your spoon

– Smear the gel mixture onto your face

– Place your hot towel over your face & let it sit for 2 minutes

– Wipe the aloe vera mixture off of your face

– Enjoy your pampered skin
