How to use Aloe Vera Gel on face at Night

Aloe vera gel is a popular natural product known for its benefits for skin, hair, and overall health. It’s hydrating and calming properties, make it suitable for various skin types. I started facing a little bit of redness and few occasional pimples on my face in my teens. I started worrying and then my parents made me aware of the use of Aloe vera gel on my face. Here’s how I started using aloe vera gel on my face at night:

1. Choose the Right Aloe Vera Gel:

It is very important to opt for 100% pure aloe vera gel or a product with a high aloe vera content at least 90% if you are using it from the market. Firstly I started using from home grown plants but later own when I moved abroad. I didn’t have access to the aloe vera plant over there. So I started looking for aloe vera gel online and I came across Aloderma Aloe Vera Gel. It had good reviews which depict that it works wonders for sunburns as well and is free from artificial colors. I was hesitant to use aloe vera gel from the market but this gel made my face more glowing, and hydrated. Moreover, why I am still into this product as it’s a non-greasy and non-sticky moisturizer in comparison to other brands. If buying from markets, avoid gels that contain added colors, fragrances, or other chemicals.

2. Start with a Clean Face:

The first step should always be by washing your face with a gentle cleanser to remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil. I have been using Cetaphil Cream to Foam Face Wash from last 3 years. If you are looking for a gentle cleanser without harsh ingredients in it, than go for this cleanser.

3. Patch Test:

If you are new to applying aloe vera gel to your entire face, it’s a good idea that you should perform a patch test on a small area of your skin to ensure that you don’t have any adverse reactions to it. It suit’s most of the skin type’s but everyone skin is different so results may vary.

4. Apply Aloe Vera Gel:

I usually take a small amount of aloe vera gel like a pea-sized amount on my fingertips and spread it gently all over my face, by avoiding contact with my eyes. If you are using home made gel it has slightly stickiness to it but that’s normal.

5. Massage and Absorption:

Now it’s time to massage the gel into the skin. I use gentle, upward, and outward motions to massage the gel into my skin. It will also promote the blood flow to the skin which will help to improve the appearance of the face.

6. Leave it On:

This gel can be left overnight on the face to maximize its benefits. It will feel tacky but after leaving it overnight you will see how it will make your skin more hydrated and soft.

8. Frequency:

The aloe vera gel can be applied on face at night as often as you like, but you can start with a few times a week and see how your skin responds. I started with 2 days in a week and than after a month I opted for 4 days a week. But now again as my skin issues are not there (touchwood) I am only using it 1 day in week. So it totally depends on you, how many days a week works best for you.

9. Store Properly:

If I am using homemade aloe vera gel. I use it within two weeks and store it in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight as applicable to market aloe vera gels.

Over time, I started noticing improvements in my skin’s hydration, it started reducing redness, and a few here and there pimples as well. It was totally a game-changer for me. I think so the big contribution aloe vera gel made to my skin when I started using it at night time as it work wonders for my skin as the whole body is in relax mode. However, every skin type is different and results may vary as aloe vera is generally safe for most skin types, but if you experience any irritation, itching, or redness, discontinue use immediately. If you face any concerns consult with a doctor before using aloe vera gel.
