此外, 蘆薈啫喱亦有消炎殺菌, 抑制黑色素沉澱和抗敏的作用, 既可美白, 亦可去痘去印。由此可見, 蘆薈啫喱事實上是非常多功能的保養品, 可當作面霜和面膜使用。適合任何肌膚使用,尤其是油性或混合性肌膚,濕疹皮膚也適用。

蘆薈啫喱的特點:

有部分初用蘆薈啫喱當面霜的朋友經常遇到的情況就是輕輕的刺痛感和面紅, 而皮膚愈乾燥的朋友, 刺痛感則愈強烈。此乃正常現象, 刺痛感和面紅基本上只會持續1-2分鐘然後散去, 皮膚適應蘆薈啫喱了約一星期, 刺痛感會消去。

為減低刺痛感建議使用蘆薈啫喱時, 可混合植物底油一起使用。而事實上皮膚是絕對需要油份去鎖緊水份, 否則無論使用如何頂級的保濕面霜, 水份只會迅間流失, 白費金錢亦徒勞無功。優質的底油, 非但不會阻塞毛孔, 而且有效鎖緊肌膚底層水份,令肌膚充滿彈性和彰顯天然的光彩。

  • 水份面膜: 厚敷10分鐘沖水
  • 水份泥膜: 與泥粉膜混合使用, 可增加泥膜的保濕度和減漫泥膜乾涸的速度
  • 曬後護理

Aloe vera gel has powerful soothing and hydrating power, enriched with Vitamin B, Vitamin C and amino acid, which are essential elements for the skin. Apart from usually used as after sun care, it is also anti-inflammatory , prevents pigmentation and anti-allergy. It can be also used as moisturizer and facial mask, suitable for any skin type, especially for oily and combination skin, even eczema patients.

The characteristics of aloe vera gel:

  • Absorbed easily
  • Soothes the skin naturally, suitable for all skin type
  • Restores and soften the skin
  • Hydrates and removes excessive sebum
  • Anti-inflammatory and strengthen cell regeneration
  • Soothes the skin after sunburn, burns, anti-bacterial, anti-itching, scarring

There were situations when people started using aloe vera gel as a facial moisturizer experienced sting and slight redness on their face, especially for people with dry skin. This is part of the normal healing process, basically those sensations will cease after 1-2 mintues, and the response will cease too around 1 week later once the skin have adapted to the aloe vera gel.

It is suggestable to mix the aloe vera gel with some base oil in order to reduce the sting and the redness. In fact, our skin definitely needs sebum to retain the moisture, otherwise no matter how expensive your premium hydration moisturizer is, moisture will still drain rapidly without the protection from the sebum. Fine quality base oil will not block the pores, but it locks the skin moisture, helping the skin becomes glowy and elastic.

Simply mix 2-3 drops of base oil with suitable amount of aloe vera gel for the face, and apply it as your moisturizer as usual. It is highly absorbable without a greasy feeling, also reduces the stingy sensation , but importantly maintains the skin’s moisture – sebum balance.

Different uses of aloe vera gel:

  • Hydrating moisturizer: mix with base oil for better result
  • Hydrating facial mask: Apply a thick layer onto the face then rinse it after 10 mintue
  • Hydrating clay mask: Mix the aloe vera gel with clay mask, which improves the hydrating power of the clay mask and the mask dries a bit slower
  • After sun care
  • Slight burns: If the wound is not apparent yet, wash the burn under cold water or apply cold compress, then apply the aloe vera gel.
