Aloe Vera is an amazing plant that contains a gel inside its leaves that is known to be a wonderful treatment for sunburns. It soothes the burnt, red skin, cools the affected areas, and heals skin more quickly. Did you also know Aloe Vera can cure acne? Continue reading to learn some amazing benefits of this beautiful plant.
You can either purchase an Aloe Vera plant (unless you already have some growing in your backyard if you live in California or places like this) or purchase 100% Aloe Vera that is bottled and easy to use. By breaking open a leaf of the plant or squeezing a few pumps of the gel from the bottle, simply apply the Aloe Vera to the areas where you are breaking out from acne. Make sure your skin is clean before applying the gel. It will also reduce redness, irritated, and inflamed skin due to acne or other skin issues.
Since Aloe Vera is natural, it is even better for your skin. There are no preservatives or chemicals added to pure Aloe Vera. The Aloe Vera plant contains many nourishing qualities including polysaccharides which stimulate new skin cell growth which is vital for your skin’s health. The gel can reduce scarring due to acne or other environmental reasons like damage from the sun. Your skin will look younger and fresher with continued use of Aloe Vera. Remember how refreshed your skin looks and feels after your sunburn is healed thanks to Aloe Vera? Same idea applies to treatment of other skin issues.
Aloe Vera will not clog your pores but cannot moisturize your skin on its own. Make sure to add a moisturizer to your skin in addition to Aloe Vera to retain needed moisture in your skin. First apply the Aloe Vera to clean skin then follow with an oil-free moisturizer. It’s a nourishing combination for beautiful, clean, and clear skin!
