When making DIY beauty products with aloe vera gel, it is always best to use freshly extracted gel. You can also buy aloe vera gel online. Just try to get as pure gel as you can (no artificial scents and colors).

It is also important to use raw, organic honey that, unlike processed honey, won’t irritate your skin. And if you have Manuka honey, definitely use that one – it has amazing soothing, healing and protective effects to the skin.

Once you get a smooth paste, wash your face using a gentle face cleanser and warm water. Apply a thin layer of the mask; you can reapply later, as your skin starts to absorb the mask.

Leave the mask on for 20 – 30 minutes, then rinse off well. Apply your face moisturizer while your skin is still damp, to lock in the moisture.

    This is a good article and great advice. You might want to consider using a skincare or cosmetical grade aloe vera 10X-D. It has smaller molecules and can penetrate the skin for more improved results. Most aloe has huge molecules and isn’t really a skincare grade.”

    1. Jovana R. says:

      Thanks for the advice, Mohammad!

  2. Razan says:

    Hey, any idea how often we can use this mask (aloe vera & honey mask)?

    1. Jovana R. says:

      Hi,
      Unless your skin is very dehydrated or dry, you probably don’t need to use it more than 1 – 2 times a week. However, the mask is very gentle and non-irritating, so if you want, you can use it even every day.

  3. Samuel says:

    If the portions of tablespoon mixes for either the honey or aloe vera are uneven (either more than the required amount or one greater than the other), does it affect the impact of the results on one’s skin?

    1. Jovana R. says:

      Hi Samuel,
      The ratio of the ingredients is really not much important. You will get a slightly different texture, but the effect on the skin will be pretty much the same.

  4. Can we leave the mask on overnight?

    1. Jovana R. says:

      I personally wouldn’t do that. For one, it is messy – a bit turning in bed, and your pillowcase will be soaked.
      And second – your skin can only absorb so much. You will get much better results if you leave the mask on for around 20 minutes, wash it off and apply a face cream to lock in the moisture.

  5. Mariam Praise says:

    I just never knew this mixture could be this effective! Now, I have got a new skincare routine that I could adopt for my skin. Thanks a lot for this.

    1. Jovana R. says:

      Glad you like it… ❤️️❤️️❤️️

  6. Sonali says:

    Aloe and honey I have used earlier but addition of tea tree essential oil is something I would like to do for my severely acne prone skin.

    1. Jovana R. says:

      Yes, tea tree oil is great, but only 1 – 2 drops… 🙂
