Three ways to use aloe vera in summer
Several studies claim that solar radiation and UV rays are becoming more aggressive every year. Therefore, during summer it is essential to take care of your skin and to protect it before and after sun exposure.
But what product hydrates, protects and regenerates the skin at the same time? Yes, aloe vera. There are infinite ways in which to use this product. Please find hereafter some of the most interesting for the summer season.
Aloe vera as aftersun
As we spend days on the beach and alongside the swimming pool, our skin is exposed to the sun for a long time. Therefore, it is important to hydrate it well once we get home. Aloe vera hydrates, protects and regenerates our skin while granting us at the same time the security of using a natural product that does not harm it.
Experts recommend using aloe vera right after your shower on a dry but slightly humid skin. This way you not only hydrate every inch of your body, but also relieve possible inflammations and red spots from exposure to ultraviolet rays.
It is also highly recommended to use aloe vera as aftersun in case of sunburns, as it gives instant relief.
Aloe vera against the feeling of tired legs
Apart from sunbathing and tanning, we use to spend a lot of time away from home. We make long walks and are involved in other activities that make us feel tired and occasionally cause our legs to feel tired too.
By applying aloe vera on feet and legs before going to sleep, we ease the area and eliminate this feeling of heaviness in our legs.
Aloe Vera after shaving
Aloe vera can not only be used as aftersun but also as aftershave lotion. Thanks to its regenerative properties, it turns out to be an excellent product to relieve irritations and red spots that appear after shaving.
For all its beneficial properties, aloe vera is a great ally when our skin suffers from the inconveniences of summer (UV rays, sea and swimming pool water, temperature changes ...) These simple tricks can make a difference and allow you to enjoy a naturally protected skin during the warmest season of the year.
