Benefits of Aloe Vera in Skincare
Aloe is a strong anti-inflammatory which heals and hydrates inflamed skin. Aloe Vera exhibits the ability to stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis and aid in the removal of dead skin cells. It’s often used to treat cuts, grazes, burns and insect bites.
Treats sunburn and inflammation. While the jury is out on whether or not Aloe Vera heals burns faster, it does address the inflammation in sunburned skin, provide much needed hydration and repair damage to epidermal cells.
Hydrates. Aloe Vera soaks into the skin to add hydration, but it’s important to follow with a moisturizer to seal it in. Better yet, use a moisturizer formulated with aloe to get 2-in-1.
Fights aging. Aloe Vera stimulates collagen and elastin synthesis and aids in the removal of dead skin cells.
