But why would you?
Find out the incredible (and varied) benefits of this versatile little plant here!
Soothing a Burn
If you only know one thing about aloe vera, it's probably this: aloe vera can help soothe a sunburn. The unique properties in aloe vera can help soothe more than just sunburns. Aloe could also help soothe all kinds of burns. That includes first and second-degree burns caused by something other than the sun.
Of course, practitioners of natural medicine have known about the benefits for a long time. Now it's time for you to take advantage of them too!
InfiniteAloe Skin Care Benefits
Aloe vera does more for the skin than just soothe painful burns. As a desert plant, it has to be able to store water for the long dry spells. It seems to be able to transfer those properties, at least partially, to your skin.
Thus, you can use aloe vera for well-hydrated skin. This helps to plump up and smooth your skin.
What does that mean? Properly hydrated skin helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles - something everyone loves!
Plus, the water in the leaves combines with chemical compounds in the plant that makes it an ideal moisturizer.
Soothe Skin Conditions
The gentle, soothing properties of aloe vera also help with itchy skin conditions like psoriasis.
In fact, it could be said that aloe vera is a miracle worker for the skin.
Aloe vera is also rich in antioxidants. If you've heard anything about antioxidants, you know what powerhouses these incredible ingredients are.
Usually, people talk about antioxidants in reference to eating them. But they provide a ton of benefits for the skin as well!
Free-radicals from sun exposure and exposure to environmental toxins can build up in your skin. Antioxidants help to eliminate and even reverse the damage that this can cause. Applying them directly to your skin is a great way to do this.
More Benefits of Aloe Vera
This list has only scratched the surface of all the benefits that this little plant contains. It also has benefits for reducing plaque on the teeth, as a mouthwash, and for soothing canker sores! There's a lot that this incredibly versatile plant has to offer.
