Aloe vera has been used for thousands of years for healing the skin of any cuts, wounds and burns, and improving it’s overall appearance. While people have traditionally applied aloe vera extract from the aloe plant directly onto the skin, it’s now generally taken as a lotion, a cream, a capsule, or a drink, where aloe vera is an active ingredient.
It’s used both as a cosmetic product for anti-ageing purposes and for improving the general appearance of the skin, and as a form of alternative medication for various skin complaints, helping to effectively heal cuts and burns and treat skin ulcers, Psoriasis and Eczema.
So aloe vera products can be extremely effective in improving your skin because this natural ingredient can act both as a moisturiser and an anti-inflammatory meaning that it will reduce the dryness of your skin and make it appear younger, as well as effectively healing any skin conditions you may suffer from.
Aloe vera can even help protect you from increased exposure to the sun so you can use it when you go on holiday (as well as your usual sun protection) to prevent skin damage and help to treat your skin if it happens to get burnt. It can even help to maintain a longer lasting sun tan when you return from your holiday, so you can enjoy the benefits from a healthy glowing tan for longer.
So whether you simply want to look younger, or whether you want to treat a specific skin condition you may have, aloe vera or at least a product containing the aloe vera ingredient, can be useful in helping improve your skin’s appearance.
You can apply aloe vera creams or moisturisers directly to the skin, or you could drink an aloe vera juice, for example, but for a more potent product we recommend Aloeride which is made from 100% pure aloe vera extract for a more effective treatment.
