Temperature is soaring and the scorching summer can sap our energy and consume most of the water in our bodies. The incalescence and dankness make our skin look dull and dry. Hence, it is essential to keep our skin moisturized.
The Aloe Vera plant is the source of one of nature’s oldest and most effective remedies. This amazing plant is surprisingly beneficial to your health, particularly to your skin and hair. Because of its active components and anti-inflammatory properties, it has been used for boosting the immune system, healing, and skin treatment. I remember during my teenage years, I was acclimated buying shampoo with Aloe Vera because it makes my hair supple and soft. So, I would say I’m also learning while writing this post.
HYDRATE YOUR SKIN BY USING ALOE VERA
I presume you have read my post about the red patches on my face and Aloe Vera was recommended by Ma’am Alice (Preacher’s wife) and also my friend, Michelle. I tried it dubiously and I’ve noticed the gradual effect on my face. It assuage the redness and tightens the skin. Eventually, I love putting it on my face because of its soothing and cooling effect.
DISCOVERING ALOE VERA
MOISTURIZES THE SKIN
Its fresh leaves can be sliced open to yield a cooling gel that has long been valued for its medicinal properties, especially in the treatment of skin problems. I put the gel on my face or before applying anything, like a primer, then allow it to dry for 15 minutes before putting the makeup on. Fresh gel from the leaf is the most potent form, but it is now found in many other products, such as skin lotions, deodorants, or cosmetics.
Apparently better than Hydrocortisone cream. My Doctor recommended hydrocortisone cream for my face and applied it several times but the redness is still there. I keep on applying Aloe Vera gel twice a day, morning and night and I can say it’s gently improving.
It can relieve scalp itchiness and irritation. Aloe Vera contains natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that help keep scalp healthy and clean. Because of Aloe Vera’s antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, it also helps with dandruff, and the gel’s enzymes can rid the scalp of dead cells and promote the regeneration of skin tissue around the hair follicles.
Aloe Vera is particularly effective when applied to damaged skin. It aids in the healing of minor burns, sunburn and skin wounds, creating a moisturizing barrier against infection.
ANTIOXIDANT AND ANTIBACTERIAL PROPERTIES
Aloe Vera is one of those plants that heals various ailments and infections. With its active components, it is effective as antibiotic and disinfectant. Hence, it’s known to treat disorders and diseases. It contains various powerful antioxidant compounds. When you have enough antioxidants, free radicals are kept under control so that they don’t harm your cells.
From lowering obesity to boosting your immune system, the long succulent leaves of the Aloe Vera plant can do wonders to your health and bodies. This incredible Aloe plant has been recognized as a healing herbal remedy since ancient times.
