Warm sunny rays bouncing off the skin is the definitive sign that summer is here! With the new season, Aloe Vera holds as an essential tool in our skin-health arsenal. Surprisingly, Aloe Vera can be used for skin rejuvenation, healing and soothing. In addition to your natural Zinc oxide sunscreen, here are the top 10 reasons to use Aloe Vera this summer!
Use Aloe Vera this Summer to:
- Moisturize dry skin – Aloe Vera’s thick pulp is rich in vitamin E and vitamin C. When placed directly over dry skin, the pulp acts as a barrier, protecting from further damage and replenishing moisture back into the skin.
- Relieve burned skins – So you stayed out in the sun too long and now your skin is tender to the touch. Aloe Vera is cool to touch and naturally soothes burned skin.
- Heal sunburned skin – Use Aloe Vera, its gel, or a natural soap with Aloe Vera, to quicken the cell turnover and promote faster healing for sensitive sunburned skin.
- Prevents infections – The pain is just one component of a sunburn. In rare cases, sunburned skin can become infected. Aloe Vera’s pulp has natural antibacterial properties which fight off any bacteria that may be trying to invade the skin.
- Prevents wrinkles – Sun exposure can age skin and lead to wrinkles. Aloe Vera is full of antioxidants, particularly carotene; which promotes firm skin and maintains hydration.
- Get rid of sunspots – Hyperpigmentation, a condition where the skin becomes overly pigmented, can be treated naturally by mixing Aloe Vera with sunscreen to protect the skin from further damage while healing at the same time.
- Maintains digestive health – Summer has a tendency to make us crave high-calorie foods. Consuming natural Aloe Vera or Aloe Vera juice (yes it is drinkable) helps our stomach experience regularity in a gentle manner.
- Diminishes stretch marks – Forget about your stretch marks: Aloe Vera naturally lightens and heals the stretched skin, making it less visible.
- Safeguard your children’s skin – Aloe Vera is gentle enough for a baby’s skin and strong enough to protect it from the sun damage.
- Help moisturize your lips – The skin is not the only area which can experience discomfort from the sun. The lips receive the same exposure and at times can develop heat blisters. Aloe Vera is safe to place on the lips and can be left overnight to heal.
