Benefits of aloe vera for the skin

Aloe vera has multiple visible benefits for the skin, which is why it is one of the most commonly used ingredients in creams, tonics and oils. Its many properties include the following: 

  1. It aids healing, the aloe vera plant contains a gel which, when applied to the damaged area, penetrates the layers of the skin (from the epidermis to the hypodermis, the innermost layer of the skin), stimulating cell regeneration. This helps to restore circulation and healing much faster.
  2. Accelerated recovery from burns, which is one of the most common benefits of aloe vera and one of the most traditional.  Aloe Vera has been a basic ingredient in traditional medicine for many years. It will help you to disinfect, heal and recover from burns.
  3. Acne and oily skin. Another great advantage of Aloe Vera is that you can apply it directly to your face. Our skin will look much smoother thanks to daily skin cleansing. All thanks to the anti-inflammatory power that penetrates the pores, cleansing and regulating the pH of the dermis in a natural way.
  4. For diseases affecting the skin derma, such as chicken pox, aloe can be a great ally, as it reduces itching and helps healing.
  5. It works as a moisturiser, Aloe Vera is an essential ingredient in many of the high end cosmetic brands' products as a moisturising component, feel free to apply it to your face on dry or damaged areas.
  6. In addition, aloe vera is a humectant, i.e. it acts as a protective barrier on the skin and its main function is to prevent water evaporation, therefore ensuring that we have a more hydrated skin. 
  7. Age spots, applied as a cream will reduce discolouration caused by melamine build-up and activate regeneration.
