The Benefits of Aloe Vera for the Skin & Body
With the last stretch of summer, you’re probably maximizing all the days left we have under the scorching sun with some beach days with family and friends. Being cooped up at home for a year or so definitely got us excited for the outdoors, but with it, comes the nasty, inevitable sunburn. You’ve probably tried soothing your irritated skin with an aloe vera-infused gel or cream in the past, but did you know that you can actually use it on your face?
Here are just some benefits of using products wonderfully formulated with the miracle ingredient, aloe vera. Best of all, these are always budget-friendly; perfect for those still in school!
The nutrient-packed ingredient is multi-benefit with polysaccharides, which combats loss of moisture, providing extra hydration for dry skin. Aloe vera also gives a protective barrier, effectively invigorating dull and stressed skin. With phytosterols, it also has soothing properties, which helps calm sensitized and irritated skin—especially when you’ve spent too much time under the sun. PSA: Don’t forget your sunscreen, ladies and gents! Here are just some of our recommendations.
Need more convincing? Aloe vera has bioactive compounds in the plant, rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, and E. These aid in its healing benefits! Need a quick guide on vitamins in skincare? We’ve got you covered. Read it here.
