Aloe vera provides natural hydration and soothing effects for your skin.
Aloe vera is a succulent, evergreen plant. This means that it thrives in dry conditions, growing wild in many parts of the world. It is 95% water and works well to soothe the skin.
Aloe vera contains a variety of minerals and vitamins. Its significant water content means that it helps retain moisture. It helps skin feel smooth and hydrated, giving it an appearance that can be plump and youthful. Aloe vera’s hydrating effects make skin look naturally refreshed, renewed, and revitalized.
Aloe vera has been shown to increase skin barrier flexibility to make it less fragile. This means it can soothe the skin as well as reduce redness and boost integrity.
Aloe vera can be used for minor burns or skin damage. It can have a soothing effect when applied up to three times a day for superficial burns.
Aloe vera can be beneficial to the sunburnt skin, allowing the skin to re-hydrate. However, it is not a preventive measure against sunburn, so it should not be used in lieu of sun protection creams and lotions.
Aloe vera gel is easily absorbed, making it suitable for dry skin. Using aloe straight after bathing is an excellent way to lock moisture into the skin.
