The Benefits of Aloe for Your Skin
The Aloe Vera, or the Aloe Barbadensis, plant has been used in a wide variety of ways for many centuries. It has made a name for itself particularly in the beauty industry for its ability to heal and soothe the skin.
Its popularity continues to grow within the health, wellness and beauty industries because of how it benefits the skin and body as a whole. Here are just a few ways it can help heal certain skin conditions and types.
It soothes redness. Skin conditions such as rosacea, acne and dryness can cause different levels of redness, so can environmental factors like sun exposure or allergens. Aloe contains powerful hormones that have powerful healing abilities. They provide a protective moisture barrier that soothes the skin and assists in its healing.
Prevents damage and heals scarring. Aloe is filled with amazing antioxidants that help fight off free radicals and lessen the damage of the skin from the environment around you. If damage happens, like scarring, use aloe to help heal the wounds faster.
Increases moisture levels in all skin types, including oily. Most people with oily skin fret when they first hear this, but listen up, you need to add moisture. Use it, just a little bit, at the end of your routine and you won’t regret it. As for dry skin, it always needs more moisture so anything, including aloe, helps. Try this serum to add it into your routine. The lip balms or hand creams are fantastic additions this season as well.
