How To Make: Anti Itch Calamine Gel At Home

Hi guys! This week i decided to dedicate the week to make recipes for gel related products.
I know that many of you have some 'problem' in some area of the skin. and it doesn't makes sense to use a product for whole skin right? 
I mean if you have like a small pimples on forehead; why change your whole skincare routine to anti acne products just because of one pimples? why not just spot treat it? And in this case; its why not you create a product like this gel that we will be making; thats completely 'transparent' and you could use it on affected area only when you need it? Right????
So this week we would be making gels for different problems that can be 'spot' treated like anti itch gel, acne gel, pigmentation gel, and so on.
There are many of us out there who are afflicted with skin that gets easily irritated and inflamed. Today’s recipe will be an aid against that. In this recipe we will be using Soaplab’s handmade; aloe vera gel base. 

Aloe vera is the perfect remedy for skin that easily get irritated. It helps the skin to retain its moisture and it has amazing cooling properties. It is also rich with antioxidant which help to heal the skin and keep it healthy. 
Next, we added eucalyptus essential oil which is known for its antiseptic qualities. It also stimulates the skin to increase blood flow. If you are someone who has skin that is highly sensitive; you could avoid putting eucalyptus EO as it can feel 'strong' and 'minty' at times.
Finally, add calamine powder to make your skin radiant. Calamine powder helps keep your skin hydrated which improves the complexion of your skin. Its definitely helps in controlling itch too. 
Overall; this will be the perfect remedy for anyone that has skin which is acting up. So keep one in your bag if you have this kind of skin:-)
