The Benefits of Adding Aloe Vera To Your Daily Skin Routine
Originating in North Africa Aloe Vera is one of the most beneficial plants. It contains powerful anti-oxidants that occur naturally within the plant.It supplies oxygen to the skin cells. Because this plant consists of a gel that is 99% water, it effectively binds moisture to and hydrates the skin. I use Aloe Vera as a moisturizer and definitely whenever I get a burn. For those of you who may have spent more time then you needed in the sun, applying Aloe Vera gel to your sunburn offers immediate relief.
Here's a few ways to incorporate it into your Skincare Routine:
For Oily skin or Acne Skin
Use Aloe Vera gel on alternate days by itself.
As a moisturizer the wound healing properties of Aloe Vera will:
* help reduce inflammation
* the anti-bacterial properties will reduce and help eliminate the bacteria that causes breakouts.
Note:All skin types need moisture, Oily and Acne skin is no exception, this gel will help re- balance your skin giving back to it the moisture that you often lose when you are using products that control oil or get rid of blemishes.
For Normal to Dry skin
*Mix Aloe Vera gel with your daily moisturizer to extend the benefits and retain moisture longer.
* It will also help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkling.
For Puffy Eyes
Keep Aloe Vera Gel refrigerated, applying it cold will help reduce the look of puffiness for those of us (myself included) who suffer from puffy under eyes.
