Beauty recipe:moisturizing mask with Aloe vera

Rich in vitamins A, E, and B and in minerals (phosphorus, potassium, calcium, chlorine, iron, zinc), Aloe vera is one of the favorite active ingredients in cosmetics. Regular! It is healing, regenerating, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and antibiotic. The West Indians pick it directly from the garden and use its fresh pulp in all sauces:sunburn, chapped lips, fever blisters, hair or face mask, small wounds, irritations, mycosis... It is particularly indicated when you have skin dehydrated and tired.

Ingredients and tools

• Pure and organic Aloe vera gel (available for example at Aroma Zone)

• Avocado or sweet almond oil


Put the Aloe vera gel on clean skin, like a mask (in a layer not too thick). Wait until it has completely absorbed then massage the face with a drop of avocado or almond oil. And zou, at bedtime. There is no better way to regenerate the skin.
