Fond of the beautiful Aloe Vera plants? So am I. Not just because I think they’re beautiful, but also because they contain lots of benefits for the skin. I asked on InstaStories if you wanted to know more about the benefits of this plant and most of you did, so here it is!
Vitamin & mineral bomb
This plant contains loads of vitamins and minerals. Which ones? Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, E, calcium, zinc , iron, potassium, copper, manganese, selenium, sodium, chromium and magnesium. That’s a whole bunch right? All those vitamins and minerals will benefit your skin big time.
There is no miracle cure for a younger looking skin, but the gel from the Aloe Vera plant can help smooth out some those fine lines and improve the skins natural firmness. When ingested, it can fight free radicals because of the high dosage of anti-oxidants. The free radicals are linked to skin aging, so drinking Aloe Vera juice can slow down the aging process of the skin.
Did you know: Aloe Vera juice is known to be one of the best body cleansers and detoxifying agents in nature? And when your body can get rid of all the toxins because of the Aloe, your skin will get clearer.
Moisturizer & anti-inflammatory
You can use the Aloe Vera juice as a moisturizer used when you have a dry skin. It’s not greasy like oil but gets absorbed really easy. Aloe Vera is also known for its healing benefits when it comes to sunburn or cuts. That’s because it has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. So if you have a skin infection, acne or eczema, Aloe Vera might be beneficial.
Aloe Vera contains polysaccharides that stimulate the growth of new cells, which can help the healing process of the skin when it comes to acne, scars or eczema.
