Aloe Vera and its Benefits for Skin
The aloe vera plant has been utilized for centuries in hundreds of countries around the world: some of those countries include China, Egypt, Japan, Yemen, and the United States.
Being a staple in many countries, aloe vera has been used as a go-to for its external and internal health and beautifying properties.
One reason aloe vera is coveted and a go-to item
The aloe vera plant is made up of a "latex" like exterior, and the inside is made up of a gel. One of the skin benefits of aloe gel is as a first aid staple (ex: 1st-degree burns and sunburned skin caused by the suns fiery rays); this is because aloe vera contains vitamins A, B, and C as well as minerals that include zinc, magnesium, and copper that help to accelerate wound healing.
Aloe vera gel also moisturizes dry skin and has the ability to reduce acne blemishes and the appearance of minor scars. Also, due to its moisturizing properties, aloe gel can reduce lines on the face and neck and help fight against aging of the skin.
So where can aloe vera be found? Well, aloe vera can be found at almost any beauty store and especially at many day spas. An esthetician is usually employed at a day spa. An esthetician's job is to help beautify their client's skin with several face washes, astringents, and lotions to moisturize and some of those products may contain aloe vera gel.
If you are interested in the skin benefits that aloe vera provides, add a product that contains aloe vera (or the aloe vera gel itself) to your skincare routine.
