I am a 20 old male in Kenya. I want to go natural. I do not apply anything on my body as of now. I have oily skin. Now I want to better my skin by bathing with Neem soap and applying aloe vera juice or drinking. How is it done. For drinking do I just boil? Do I just apply the juice on my skin overnight?

How do I turn this sun burn into a sun tan?

How do I turn this sun burn into a sun tan?
I was outside today trying to get a tan and I’m red. How do I prevent pealing? How can I make it a tan? And we have a aloe plant. Should I just break a little piece off and run it on the burnt area?
Any info would help thanks.

Chilled aloe vera will sooth the irritation caused by a sunburn. You can break the aloe plant and squeeze out the juice from it and rub that on your burn and that will help soothe it too. Good moisturization is really important if you want to prevent pealing. Any lotion with Vitamin E will keep skin moisturized. Lotion with hemp seed extract is also really good for keeping skin hydrated and preventing peeling. From what I learned in training for my Smart Tan Certification is that a sunburn doesn’t really turn into a tan. Any skin that wasn’t burnt will be tan and visible when your burn fades though. If you want to mask the redness and make it look more like a tan you can do that by using a sunless tanner. Try using Hempz Shimmer Bronze moisturizer. You can get it at Ulta but I’m not sure exactly how much it retails for (I think around $ 30). If you don’t want to get that though, any drug store gradual self tanner will work just as well. L’Oreal Sublime Glow is actually a good one that has Vitamin E and retails for about $ 9.

The pink part is somewhat thick, like an aloe plant, not thin like flower petals. I need to find out what it is so I can learn how to take care of it 🙂

It is a Bromeliad.
Pineapple & Air Plants are also in the same family.
If you look at the stem of the plant you will see it forms a cup like container. Use distilled water and pour the water in there rather then into the soil.

They can also be attached to tree/branches. I saw someone on Phil The Garden Guy on HGTV make a beautiful tree out of a branch in a large pot. He attached all types of Bromeliads to it for the corner of his living room.

The blooms are temporary but long lasting.

There are a lot of beautiful varieties of blooms.

I wouldnt drink it, its not bad for you but if you want it for your skin then you apply it on your skin. I usually just cut and peel open the plant and rub it on my face. works wonders on scars but it takes a while.
