Aloe Vera Gel is one of our favorite moisturizing products. Aloe is a beautiful Hawaiian botanical that we love for so many reasons. It’s a natural anti-inflammatory, so it’s known to help with after sun care and reducing redness in the face. We love that our Island Aloe Gel is also a beautiful lightweight moisturizer perfect for the face due to its breathability. It will help cool and soothe your skin, while providing daily essential hydration. We love to use our Island Aloe Gel every night to add moisture to a daily skincare routine, and these are our best tips for getting the most out of your new favorite moisturizer.
Cleanse Your Face
Before even jumping into moisturizing your face with our Island Aloe Gel, make sure you cleanse your face. We love our Papaya Enzyme and Charcoal Powder Face Cleansers. They help to gently clean your face, while exfoliating. Both powder face cleansers have amazing benefits for your skin as well, from the brightening powers of papaya enzyme, to the skin detox charcoal provides.
Gently Exfoliate - A Few Times A Week
Before moisturizing, always make sure you’re exfoliating. This will allow you to absorb all the healing moisturizing properties of your Aloe Gel, because you’ll have gotten rid of any dead or dry skin your face was holding onto. Our powder face cleansers are fantastic for gently exfoliating your face daily, and if you need a little more exfoliation, try our Sugar Lip Scrub or Sugar Body Scrub.
Apply Island Aloe Vera Gel For Your Face & Neck
After exfoliating, use our Island Aloe Gel on your face and neck for beautiful lightweight moisture and soothing benefits. It’s known to help with inflammation, so no worries about using this moisturizer if you’re acne prone. And if you’ve been in the sun all day, this should absolutely be in your skincare routine.
For Deep Hydration Follow Up With A Hanalei Sheet Mask
Once you’ve moisturized with our Island Aloe Gel, if you’re craving a little more moisture, follow up with one of our Hanalei Face Sheet Masks. Our papaya, pear, and lychee face masks are ideal for adding moisture, and chilling with a face mask at the end of the day is never a bad idea!
Don’t Forget To Finish Your Routine With Lip Treatment Or Balm
After your face mask and chill session, don’t forget the lip moisture. We love to moisturize our lips with our Lip Treatment or Lip Balms before bed, and if you want the ultimate benefits, use our Sugar Lip Scrub to exfoliate first.
This combination is sure to have your whole face feeling beautifully moisturized, even after being outside all day, so that you can look and feel your absolute best.
