Benefits Of Aloe Vera Gel
Aloe Vera Gel has cooling properties and is anti-inflammatory. Hence, it is one of the most natural remedies for sunburn or burnt skin. Applying this gel helps with a protective layer for the skin, and it also helps to retain moisture. It is rich in antioxidants and minerals that boost the healing process. So now you can maintain your summer skin health using Aloe Vera.
Unlike regular, market-bought moisturizers, Aloe Vera gel when used as a moisturizing gel doesn’t leave a greasy film on the face and the skin. In fact, it does just the opposite – it unclogs the pores and softens the skin.
It can be used as an aftershave-treatment. This is because the Aloe Vera gel helps to keep the skin hydrated and heals burns by razor and smaller nicks & cuts. It also helps treat dry skin.
Those who suffer from acne will find respite in Aloe Vera. It helps in gentle cleansing, and its antimicrobial properties treat pimples without causing any damages to the skin. It is an antiseptic that allows protection against bacteria. Aloe Vera contains polysaccharides and gibberellins. These help in the growth of new cells and at the same time, reduce inflammation and redness. It also works as an astringent that reduces the size of pores, flushing out the excess sebum, microbes, and dirt.
If you’re dealing with a chronic skin condition, it’s a good idea to check with your dermatologist before applying any products to your face. Talk to your doctor about the following potential benefits of Aloe Vera:
For minor burns, apply Aloe Vera gel to the affected area up to three times daily. You may also need to protect the area with gauze.
While Aloe Vera helps soothe sunburns, research shows that it’s not an effective way to prevent sunburn, so make sure you wear sun protection every day!
3. Small abrasions
If you’ve scuffed up your chin or forehead, you can apply Aloe Vera to the area for quick relief from pain and burning sensations. Use three times per day.
If you’re used to grabbing Neosporin for a minor cut, consider trying Aloe Vera instead. Its molecular structure helps heal wounds quickly and minimizes scarring by boosting collagen and fighting bacteria. Apply up to three times per day.
5. Dry skin
Aloe Vera gel absorbs easily, making it ideal for oily skin. However, it can help treat dry skin, too. Consider swapping out your regular moisturizer for Aloe Vera after bathing to help seal moisture into your skin.
Frostbite is a serious condition that requires emergency medical treatment. While Aloe Vera gel has been used historically as a frostbite remedy, ask your doctor first before trying it.
7. Cold sores
Unlike canker sores, cold sores develop on the outside of your mouth. Aloe Vera may help treat the herpes virus, which is also the underlying cause of cold sores. Apply a small amount of the gel to your cold sore twice daily until it goes away.
The moisturizing effects of Aloe Vera can help alleviate dry, itchy skin associated with eczema. Aloe Vera gel may also help alleviate seborrheic dermatitis. While this oily form of eczema is most often found in the scalp, it can also affect parts of your face and behind the ears, too.
As with eczema, Aloe Vera may help alleviate inflammation and itchiness from psoriasis. For best results, apply Aloe Vera gel twice daily to the affected area of skin.
10. Inflammatory acne
Due to the anti-inflammatory effects of Aloe Vera, the gel may help treat inflammatory forms of acne, such as pustules and nodules. Apply the gel with a cotton swab directly to the pimple three times daily.
