Scientific Name: Aloe Barbadensis
Benefits/History: Aloe is a cactus plant that has been used medicinally for centuries. As mentioned in an earlier blog post, Aloe vera was known as the “plant of immortality” by the Ancient Egyptians and has historically been used for a wide variety of purposes.
Since then, using aloe’s uses have become more targeted and therapeutic, and aloe has claimed its fame as one of the leading remedies for treating sunburns. Although aloe is a phenomenal remedy for soothing sunburns, incorporating this mighty plant into your skin care routine can have a transformative impact on your overall complexion.
Aloe is a key ingredient to look for if you’re struggling with eye puffiness, scars, redness and swelling. Aloe’s gel and leaf juices are demulcents – meaning that they are capable of relieving inflammation and irritation around delicate areas.
Being naturally rich in Vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta carotene, aloe vera works to improve skin’s firmness and resistance to loss of elasticity.
Skin Types: Aloe is an exceptionally effective ingredient for those with sensitive and mature skin types as it calms irritation and protects skin elasticity. Dry skin types can also benefit from using aloe in their skin care because it is a moisturizing agent for thirsty skin that won’t leave behind a greasy feel. Additionally, the soothing and cleansing properties of aloe are ideal for those with acne as it combats blistering, clogged pores, redness, and scabbiness.
