  1. I have been using Aloe Vera for years. I have not met anyone else who does. I do find I can't keep it on for long as it stings, but really did help my skin. Any ideas how to make it into a cleanser as I have allergies to many products?

  2. Hi NinaLaZina
    I am using Aloe Vera Gel from beauty salons as a mask. If you are using raw aloe vera, what you can do is boil the aloe vera, let it cool and then rinse thoroughly after you have washed your face with your regular cleanser. This is another way I use aloe vera. To prevent the boiled aloe vera to stink, just keep it in the refrigerator =) I was planning to write a post on tips and usage of aloe vera soon =)

    Thanks for your visit.

  3. Thank you. I was thinking og a way I could use it as a cleanser. Maybe by adding another product to it. I buy the gel from the health store. Any ideas.

  4. Thanks a lot for sharing this informative post.....
