D.I.Y Aloe Vera Mask

I like Aloe Vera; unsurprisingly I use it more during the summer than any other season. Why? Because I am prone to sunburns! If you’ve been forgetting your sunscreen and need something to help soothe those red rashes or burns, then Aloe Vera is perfect for you. It’s no wonder many companies sell Aloe Vera “Aftersun” Gel. So, how is Aloe Vera great for your skin? Aloe vera has plenty of vitamins, etc but for the purpose of this post I will focus only on its skin benefits. It’s great for healing burns or scars; relieves itching and soothes skin (which is why it’s used to treat sunburns), and it’s also 99% water so that means its very moisturizing for your skin!

Things I need to start doing..

When I had a job… I would spend all my money on food. Why not clothes? Well, I was already gaining weight and nothing looked nice on me… so I made myself a promise that I wouldn’t spend money on clothes until I got skinnier. But I digress, the 20’s are a time where some forget to take care of their skin, such as putting on sunscreen everyday (especially on your neck), finding some classes that will help you (1/4 college women will be victims of attempted rape), and classes that will help you improve your posture, along with many others.
