Aloe vera is a succulent plant species originating from the Arabian Peninsula, but grows wild in tropical, semi-tropical, and arid climates around the world. It is grown for agricultural, medicinal and decorative purposes.
Aloe Vera is almost akin to a ‘miracle worker’ for skin, hair, and a plethora of other health concerns. She, yes ‘she’, nourishes the body from the inside. Being rich in nutrients, she aids in improving digestion and even boosts immunity.
But let’s delve deeper into the miracles Aloe vera works on the skin. It’s no wonder why almost everyone either has the plant itself of its gel at their disposal.
At Anne’s Apothecary, we have a number of Aloe vera products that work miracles on your skin. Stay tuned to the end of this to shop them.
Aloe Vera gel possesses cooling and anti-inflammatory properties. Therefore, it is commonly used as one of the most natural remedies for sunburn or burnt skin. This gel also contains polysaccharides, which when applied to the skin provides a protective barrier on the skin and helps to retain moisture. It is also rich in antioxidants and minerals that boost the healing process.
Known to be a natural moisturizer, Aloe vera has hydrating properties and absorbs into the skin easily. It works like magic even for oily and acne-prone skin because of its light texture and 99% water content.
Aloe vera is packed with antioxidants and vitamin E which help lighten discolouration around eyes and the cooling effect helps with the puffiness.
Acemannan, a complex carbohydrate found in Aloe vera gel, allows nutrients to reach the cells, nourish them and at the same time relieve them of toxins. Aloe vera also stimulates the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin fibers in the skin which help keep the skin firm and hydrated and fade away stretch marks.
Suffer from acne? Aloe vera gel and its antimicrobial properties treat pimples without causing any damages to the skin. Aloe vera also contains polysaccharides and gibberellins which help in the growth of new cells, reduce inflammation and redness of the skin.
