Aloe vera gel is a staple of my skin care routine and that has been the case for a while now. I think everyone by now knows about the benefits of aloe for skin (face and body) .
Aloe gel comes from aloe vera plant, mostly used to soothe burns and sun damage and as an antiseptic for superficial wounds.
But it has a very beneficial effect on skin as well.It is relatively inexpensive but just as good as many really high end products used in skin care. Aloe vera gel can be used to
- Treat sunburns
- treats acne
- Acts as a moisturizer
- Minimizes appearance of large pores
- Anti aging
- Lightens stretch marks
- Matifying when used as a base under makeup.
When i was looking to get my self an aloe gel for the first time , i took the most obvious route ... tried extracting it myself from my mom's aloe vera plant. Didn't turn out so well i am afraid as i totally sucked at it , not to mention the amount of time it took me to extract a little bit of it. Time for plan B , i thought. But i had no idea where to buy prepackaged aloe vera gel . I went to saeed ghani thinking they might have some but they didn't have pure aloe vera gel.It took me a long time to find one that was available in Pakistan . So here i am detailing where to find aloe vera gel in Pakistan and different brands that are available for the uninitiated who are interested in trying out this really great natural product.
