Aloe vera is one of those magical skincare ingredients that everyone and their frog knows, talks, and raves about.
Even people with zero skincare interest will sing its praises and enthusiastically recommend it to you. For good reason! Aloe vera is an enormously useful skincare ingredient. Which as a skincare company is pretty high on our love list. So, let’s chat all things aloe.
Four Reasons Aloe Vera Is Good For Your Skin
What does the all-powerful aloe vera actually do for your skin? A whole lot. Here are the top four reasons the ingredient superstar is so widely praised.
1. It soothes angry, irritated skin
If you’ve ever had a sunburn, then you’re likely already way too familiar with aloe vera’s soothing powers. It’s a brilliant anti-inflammatory that helps to calm and soothe irritations. It’s also wonderfully cooling, which is why it’s such a great sunburn remedy. (Ahem, not that you ever get sunburnt anymore, riiiiight?)
2. It deeply moisturises
In addition to being a super-soother, aloe vera can also be extremely moisturising for the skin. Not only does this benefit dry, rough, or flaking skin, but providing moisture to irritated skin can also assist in the healing process.
3. It’s suitable for all skin types
All of them! Hence, the universal popularity thing. Aloe vera has serious soothing and moisturising properties which makes it a real no brainer for sensitive and dry skin types, in particular.
4. It’s loaded with antioxidants
Yup, aloe vera is rich in vitamins c, e and beta carotene. (All of which help reduce flaking and restore suppleness to dry skin.) Antioxidants are a crucial part of any good skincare routine as they help neutralise free radicals and prevent premature ageing.
