You could be someone who has overly sensitive skin and want to know how to tame it. Alternatively, you might be a person who spends a lot of time in the sun and wants a remedy to cool down after a hard day’s work or you might be suffering from severe acne. Whatever your woes may be, aloe vera has a cure for them all and with no side effects.
Silken Skin: Aloe vera is used as a moisturizing agent along with vitamin E or glycerin. It can also be used as a cream to apply overnight. Application of aloe vera as a moisturizer before putting on makeup can prevent the skin from drying or cracking up. Aloe vera’s moisturizing properties do not give the skin an oily feel so it can be used on oily skin with equal ease. The next time you buy a cream from a cosmetics store, check for aloe vera on the ingredients list.
Blemish cure: Aloe is suitable for those whose skins have large pores and works well to soften acne scars as well. The wonder herb’s antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties help the skin heal fast. Magnesium lactate present in aloe helps to reduce the itching sensation caused by acne. Its astringent property removes excess oil and dirt from the skin to prevent further acne breakout. It reduces the size of inflamed nodules to relieve pain caused by the swelling.
