Aloe Vera For Skin: Remedy for All Your Skincare Woes

Aloe Vera, a powerhouse of an ingredient, stands out for its incredible benefits & versatility. Knows for its hydrating, soothing & healing properties, Aloe Vera has been used since time immemorial to treat a variety of skin concerns. At The Body Shop, we harness the natural goodness of Community Fair Trade Aloe Vera from Campeche, Mexico, to create products & formulations that deliver real results. Let us delve into the wonders of this pure ingredient, explore our soothing Aloe range & learn how to apply Aloe on skin, to understand how it benefits us.

About Aloe Vera and Its Benefits on the Skin

Known for its thick, fleshy leaves filled with a clear, gel-like substance, Aloe vera is rich in vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants, making it a miracle plant & a valuable ingredient in skincare.

1. Hydration: Thanks to its high water content, aloe vera has a remarkable capacity to replenish, nourish & moisturise the skin without leaving it heavy or greasy. It is suitable for all skin types, especially for acne-prone & oily skin.

2. Soothing & Calming: It acts as a soothing agent & helps calm irritated skin, reduce redness, ease inflammation, promote rapid healing & provide relief from sunburns & minor burns.

3. Healing & Regeneration: Aloe helps in skin regeneration & repair. This is due to the natural enzymes present in the plant which also help in accelerating the healing of wounds cuts, and reduce the appearance of scars.

4. Boosts Collagen Production: Regular application of Aloe vera gel boosts collagen production, helps improve the firmness & elasticity of the skin & results in a youthful appearance.

5. Even Skin Tone: Due to the presence of Aloes compound, aloe vera inhibits the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for hyperpigmentation & dark spots. Aloe helps in even skin tone resulting in a more radiant & uniform complexion.

How to apply Aloe vera Gel

While there are many options to get packed aloe vera gel, preservatives and other chemicals in the bottle may harm the skin. The best way to obtain fresh aloe vera gel is to keep a plant in the house and remove the gel from the leaves directly. You can also store the gel in your fridge for up to 2 weeks or freeze it in the form of cubes to last longer. Apply the gel at night for optimum benefits & rejuvenating skin the morning after.

  • Begin by cleaning your face with a gentle face wash to remove any makeup, dirt, or grime from your skin. Pat dry your face but let it be moist.
  • Now take the aloe vera gel and evenly apply it over your face and neck.
  • If you've applied a thin layer, gently massage the gel in circular motions till fully absorbed.
  • If you opt for a thicker layer, you can either sleep like so or let it sit for 15-20 minutes before cleaning the rest.
  • Doing this regularly will help the benefits of aloe vera seep into your skin, so you wake up all rejuvenated & fresh with supple skin!

Designed to deliver amazing benefits to your skin, The Body Shops Aloe range is like a holy grail for all your skincare woes. Incorporating aloe into your daily skincare regimen can transform your skin, hydrate it, soothe & even heal it, thus making it more healthy, radiant & resilient.
