The Benefits of Aloe Vera Juice
Okay folks, now that I am back, I wish to start the barrage of new posts that will be coming with one about the benefits of the wonderful aloe vera plant.
But first of all, before I begin listing all of the health benefits of this amazing plant, I wish to account a personal story of how this plant has helped me.
There's not that many young folks who do not struggle with acne. Sure, there are a few blessed individuals with an almost flawless complexion, and you wonder how they do it. Well, some people just have genes engineered to give them healthy looking skin. Or, maybe their body is just that healthy as not to cause acne to appear, because their composition, their gut, and their hormones are in balance.
Some of us don't quite have that advantage. Sometimes it may be severe. Sometimes very minor. But still.
Acne. Is. Annoying.
Last year I began searching for home-made natural remedies for this plague that most of us face.
I read of lemon juice, I read of toothpaste (!? okay...), I read of harsh chemicals, and I read of Aloe Vera Juice.
I began researching more, and I soon purchsed my first bottle of the juice from the health food store.
I was skeptical at first, and I just knew it wasn't going to work. But, night after night after washing my face with just water, and then applying the juice, I began to notice a difference!
It took consistency, and it didn't eliminate every single stinkin' blemish, but it helped dramatically. It has worked better than anything else I have tried.
And I can tell, if I go a few days without using it, well, the little stinkers start to appear yet again!
I believe it really works. It will, of course, be different for every individual, but it still is very beneficial.
I would encourage any of you who may struggle with acne to at least give it a try.
Another post on the benefits of aloe vera juice, gel, etc. is to come soon.
