Malaika Arora & Ananya Panday Have One Thing In Common & It’s Super Cool
Both Malaika Arora and Ananya Panday are absolute beauties but that’s not the only thing they have in common. While I always envy Malaika for looking so young even in her 40s, Ananya is a Gen Z star whose skin exudes an enviable glow. And the reason behind this is the same.
Apparently, both stars swear by aloe vera for glowing skin and they use it in their skincare routines religiously. Be it Malaika’s youthful glow or Ananya’s natural radiance, we have reason enough to add aloe vera to our skincare routine right about now.
Here’s how and why these two stars apply aloe vera on their skin at home.
Malaika Arora’s Aloe Vera Skin Hack
Malaika dedicated an entire video to this natural skincare ingredient because she thinks it is great for all skin types and it’s especially cooling and soothing on her sensitive skin. She applies a layer of fresh aloe vera gel from her home garden and rinses it off after a few minutes.
The star said that this hack is basically her DIY rendition of a natural cooling mask and she recommends applying a moisturiser after using it. I find fresh aloe vera gel extremely soothing for my acne-prone skin too and so I double up on it by using the aloe vera-infused Manish Malhotra Cinnamon Ginger Night Gel after the mask.
Ananya Panday’s Cooling Aloe Vera Tip
In an interview, Ananya said that one of her go-to DIY hacks is extracting the fresh juice of aloe vera from the leaf and then applying it on her face and hair.
The star likes to chill the aloe vera in the freezer before applying it to her skin and it becomes even more cooling and soothing. “It just gives you the most perfect glow, and makes your hair so much softer,” she said while adding that it is an underrated beauty hack.
Extracting fresh aloe vera juice can get sticky at times, that’s why I sometimes rely on the Organic Harvest Organic Aloevera Gel With Organic Glycerine to give me the natural ingredient’s pure goodness.
Benefits Of Aloe Vera For Skin
The gel from aloe vera leaves is super hydrating and cooling for the skin. It helps keep the skin moisturised, and it can also heal acne, and reverse signs of ageing. The USP? It suits all skin types.
Both Ananya and Malaika tend to wear makeup often and therefore their skin is prone to sensitivity. But they also have to maintain clear skin sans makeup for the cameras and fresh aloe vera gel helps them do it right.
If two celebs with the most amazing skin are recommending adding aloe vera gel to your routine, I don’t think you should ignore their advice. Go on and get your hands on some aloe vera gel already!
