7 benefits of Aloe Vera for glowing skin.

1.) It relieves skin irritation: Applying this gel to the skin helps relieve the skin from irritation caused by eczema, psoriasis, etc.
2.) Fights Acne: Aloe Vera contains salicylic acid that helps in the removal of pores. According to Dr Mark, it serves as an anti-inflammatory on oil glands that causes acne.
3.) Slows ageing: Aloe Vera helps in the stimulation of fibroblast activities (Dr. Mark) Which helps delay the process of ageing.
4.) Adds moisture: Since the content of Aloe Vera is water, it helps to keep the skin hydrated. This can lock moistures into the skin allowing it to act as gum to make the top layer of the skin cell stick together which smoothens the skin. So it’s mostly ideal for those with dry skin.
5:) Treats cold sores: Naturally, Aloe Vera is an antiseptic that helps in fighting germs and diseases. It helps to boost the immune system that fights cold spores and that is why it can even be applied on cuts.
6.) Treats Eczema: I could remember clearly when I was in Primary 4, I had Eczema on my face, it was so much to the extent that I earned a nickname, but I still wasn’t paying the Eczema attention until a classmate of mine with Eczema then became Light in complexion, then she was been ridiculed with the name “Eczema made me fair”. I was left with no other choice but to find how to treat it.
Back then, we had a plant farm opposite our house, my mum advised me to use Aloe Vera, I don’t like the smell, but I had to use it. This is 12 years after I’ve used it, I haven’t had any cause for Eczema irrespective of how I change cream, soap, and environment.
The moisturizer contains in Aloe Vera helps fight the dryness and itchiness associated with Eczema.
7.) Dandruff: Our scalp is an extension of our facial skin, Aloe Vera helps stop the itchiness and dryness on our scalp, and in the process, kills Dandruff.
As you step out, don’t see Aloe Vera plants as unwanted plants. Key into its health benefits and begin to glow.
