Did you know that the Egyptians referred to Aloe Vera as the plant of immortality? Now, that definitely sounds like something we want in our skin care routine. Contrary to popular belief, Aloe Vera can be used on your skin all year round, not just for those annoying burns during the summer time. Fun Fact: Aloe Vera is from the cactus family and its leaves provides a clear gel that can help to topically heal and soothe skin. This makes it a perfect and naturally-derived ingredient for sensitive skin.

Aloe vera is packed with hydration, making it a great moisturizer for dry, dull and sensitive skin. Aloe is light-weight and non greasy, so it provides protection for those who suffer from an oily complexion. Its antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties protect the skin from bacteria that can lead to infection and inflammation, or acne. Aloe is soothing and can reduce skin irritation, blistering and itchiness, while helping the skin to heal more rapidly.

Tighten skin, smooth wrinkles and fight the signs of aging with Aloe Vera. Improve your skin’s natural firmness by including Aloe Vera based products into your skin routine. Your skin acts like a big elastic band that expands and contracts to make room for growth in the body, but if the skin stretches too far, too fast, the elasticity of the skin can be damaged. Aloe Vera gel can even help hide stretch marks by healing these wounds.
