What is the definition of the best aloe vera gel? We all have been hearing the benefits of aloe vera gel from our grandmothers and mothers and have witnessed them using this magical plant. The Egyptians called it the ‘Plant of Immortality.’ Aloe vera is recorded as one of the oldest plants to treat various health, skin and hair issues. Irrespective of dry skin, oily skin or combination skin types, Aloe vera gel is the key to your lock.
What are the uses of aloe vera gel?
Aloe vera has tremendous skin and hair benefits but along with that, it has multiple health benefits too because of the healthful plant compounds found in aloe vera gel. It has antibacterial and antioxidant properties which are great for skin infections. Great to apply as a topical medicine to treat sunburns in particular. Aloe vera gel can be used as a moisturizer too especially in oily skin care routine because it’s very light in weight. If you look at the health benefits, consumption of aloe vera juice helps to reduce blood sugar levels for people with type 2 diabetes. Just a mask of simple aloe vera gel on your hair can do wonders for your hair. You will wake up to smooth hair.
How to choose the best aloe vera gel?
There are hundreds and thousands of brands in India that sell Aloe vera gel but how to identify the best aloe vera gel is very tricky. Here are a few tips to keep in mind before choosing the right aloe vera gel.
1. The gel should be labelled as 99% aloe vera gel.
2. Do not trust any aloe vera gel that is green in colour. A pure aloe vera gel will be transparent.
3. There shouldn’t be any strong fragrance of the gel.
4. There shouldn’t be water in the ingredient list.
5. If there is alcohol listed in the ingredient list, run away! Some brands even add alcohol to create a fake ‘cooling effect’.
