Using Aloe to Set Your Makeup
Primer is the golden key to keeping your make up from practically melting. Even the highest quality primers lack a crucial function of skin products, which is to protect the skin! Primers clog pores, cause breakouts, and don’t allow the skin to breathe. This natural product that’s probably collecting dust in your cabinet can be the perfect solution to primer problems.
Aloe vera gel, usually used for sun burns, is an amazing natural substance that can give you the health and hold that your skin needs. The aloe vera plant is packed with nutrients that can help improve the look of your skin.
Aloe enables a higher retention of vitamin E, which is the nutrient your skin uses in it’s natural healing process. Vitamin E helps the skin to stay hydrated and flexible to prevent wrinkling and dryness. Aloe vera is also a natural anti-bacterial that kills germs without damaging the skin. In fact, aloe is also one of the best natural products to use for acne prevention and treatment.
The sticky gel that comes from the aloe plant has high water content, so it keeps skin hydrated for much longer than most moisturizes. The thick gel dries quickly, but provides an incredibly strong hold that lets make up last for hours.
Here’s the secret…
Mix one teaspoon of water, with half a teaspoon of aloe vera gel and half a teaspoon of your liquid/powder foundation. Tada! A perfect primer that matches your skin tone.
