Should I used aloe vera or antibiotic ointment to help my skin?
I have a cold and, because I have sensitive skin, the skin around my nose has become raw and dry from blowing my nose so much. To speed my skin’s recovery, should I apply aloe vera or antibiotic ointment to my nose?

Vaseline should work fine. Aloe vera is also useful. Don’t use antibiotic ointment unless you have an open wound that you think may be infected.

I’m thinking about have a couple of aloe plants and cutting a piece off every day and squeezing the aloe out and applying it directly to my face as a moisturizer.

Any ideas why Aloe Vera Gel can erase the writings of a used paper?

Any ideas why Aloe Vera Gel can erase the writings of a used paper?
Here is the article i have found: The research group collected used bond papers, pad papers and cartlolinas. They mixed ½ cup of Aloe Vera Sap and ¼ cup of water. They wet the used paper with water and dubbed with the mixture through the use of a cotton ball repeatedly until the writings were erased.

They placed it in an area where there is sunlight. The result of the product was successful. The paper is ready to be used again.

Do you know what specific component helps it on erasing the writings?
Thanks!

Aloe plants contain lupeol, natural salicylic acid, urea nitrogen, cinnamic acid, sulfur and phenol. Any of the acids might cause this. I’m reaching, here, but you did just ask for ideas. Hope it helps…

What is the Incredible Aloe Plant Best Used For?

What is the Incredible Aloe Plant Best Used For?

Aloe vera has been used in so many products these days that it is hard to imagine a world without it. But what’s the best use for it?

Everyone knows aloe is best in hand lotion, right? Wrong! The most healthful and beneficial use of the aloe vera plant is taking it as an immune-boosting supplement. Believe it or not, the amazing aloe plant is packed full of things that your body needs for health on the inside AND the outside. It contains 6 chemical agents that are known to fight and destroy disease-causing microorganisms. Aloe also has 3 fatty acids that your body loves, because they work to keep your joints and organs from getting sore due to inflammation. There are also studies suggesting that aloe vera is effective in raising the blood sugar levels in diabetics and reducing the likelihood of a heart attack.

Of course the next best use of aloe vera is going to be in hand lotion, right? Sorry, wrong again.

The Aloe plant also works great as a vitamin dietary supplement! It has been shown to contain the following vitamins: A, B (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5, B6, B12, C, E, and also folic acid. All of these vitamins contribute greatly to overall health. Aloe vera also has calcium, sodium, zinc, chromium, potassium, magnesium, copper, manganese, and selenium. These minerals also contribute greatly to overall health in many ways.

OK, now you can say it: aloe vera is GREAT in hand lotion, hand soap, hand sanitizer, and just about any skin product! The reason is much the same as that for dietary needs. Your skin is much like the rest of your organs, it’s just a little tougher since it’s on the outside. But your skin loves several of these vitamins.

Vitamin E protects skin from aging, reduces the appearance of age spots and stretch marks, and helps maintain the skin’s oil balance. Vitamin A stimulates skin repair and rejuvenation. Aloe in hand sanitizers is especially useful, since the germ-killing alcohol tends to dry out your skin. Using hand sanitizer containing aloe and taking an oral dose of aloe can greatly reduce your chances of getting sick.

So whether you drink it, eat it, or rub it on your skin, aloe vera is just a great additive! With so many uses, it’s no wonder it’s become a household plant!

What could the beauty supply store possibly want with your old used flat iron?

What could the beauty supply store possibly want with your old used flat iron?
Why is this beauty store sending out these coupons that say bring us your old flat iron and get a $ 5 coupon for a new one.

The only logical explanation, unless you have a better one, is that It’s probably so that once you give them your old one, you won’t have one anymore and you’ll have to spend around $ 75 in their store to get a new one. What do you think?
