The benefits of Aloe Vera for your skin

The ancient Egyptians called Aloe Vera the “plant of immortality” and since then, the use of the plant has become more targeted and medicinal. The leaves of the Aloe Vera plant secrete a gel that can be applied to heal wounds and soothe the skin. Several studies have found that Aloe Vera has several properties that are effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, from dry skin, cosmetic alignments, to hair and scalp problems and much more.

The benefits of Aloe Vera for your skin

It treats sunburn: Most commonly known is that Aloe Vera helps soothe sunburn through its powerful healing activity. It acts as a protective layer on the skin and helps replenish its moisture. Because of its nutritional qualities and antioxidant properties, the skin heals quicker.

Moisturiser: Aloe Vera moisturises the skin without giving it a greasy feel, so it’s perfect for anyone with an oily skin complexion.

Acne treatment: The plant contains two hormones. Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation. Gibberellin in Aloe Vera acts as a growth hormone stimulating the growth of new cells, allowing the skin to heal quickly and naturally with minimal scarring.

Anti-Ageing: As we age, the appearance of fine lines and the loss of elasticity in the skin becomes more apparent. As Aloe Vera leaves contain a plethora of antioxidants including, beta carotene, vitamin C and E, it helps improve the natural firmness and keeps the skin hydrated.

Stretch-Marks: Due to pregnancy or rapid weight change, the elasticity of the skin can be damaged and that’s when you get stretch-marks. Aloe Vera gel can help hide these stretch-marks by healing the skin.
