Aloe vera gel is so versatile that we’re sure you’ll find a use for it that you love. To help you incorporate it into your beauty and skincare routine, we’ve put together a list of our favorite ways to use it.
Heal Sunburns and Wounds
Obviously, aloe vera is known for its healing properties, most famously for sunburns. In fact, aloe heals burns, as well as other skin injuries, at least one-third faster than alternative treatments. It has been shown to reduce healing time from 30-45 days to just 15-16 days in 2nd and 3rd-degree burns.
Aloe contains anti-inflammatory agents and reduces pain. Its powerful healing happens at the deepest level. It then acts as a protective barrier against free radicals and damage. This means aloe heals from the bottom up.
All in all, aloe can repair wounds and reduce visible damage, encourage new cell and tissue growth, and increase the flexibility of your skin.
Suggested Use: Use aloe vera gel topically on the damaged area. If necessary, cover the area with a bandage, preferably overnight, to give it time to soak in and heal.
Dry skin got you down? Aloe has you covered.
Aloe vera offers all-day hydration, but what makes it superior to many other options out there is that it doesn’t leave any greasy or heavy residue.
However, you don’t need to have just dry skin to benefit from the amazing, plentiful benefits of aloe. Those with oily, combination, or normal skin can benefit from using aloe vera as a moisturizer.
Suggested Use: Simply use on dry areas.
Reduce the Appearance of Stretch Marks
Thinking about going through painful and expensive procedures to remove your stretch marks? Think again! Aloe vera is a natural healing agent, which means you can use it to reduce your stretch marks painlessly by speeding up the skin renewal process.
Using aloe vera gel daily can greatly improve skin texture because it promotes collagen synthesis. This process is essential for healing scars caused by stretch marks and other skin damage.
While it may not eliminate them entirely, applying it daily will visibly reduce their appearance.
Suggested Use: After showering, apply aloe vera gel over stretch marks daily.
Soothe Skin Conditions
If you have problematic skin, aloe may be the treatment you need. Whether you suffer from acne, eczema, rosacea, or other sensitive skin issues, aloe has the properties needed to help calm the skin and manage it.
The skin is the largest organ in the body, so it is important to keep it hydrated and well-nourished with nutrient-rich ingredients. Aloe vera’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties soothe the skin, can keep pores unclogged, as well as keep the skin hydrated.
Suggested Use: For problematic skin, suggested use may vary. You can use it as a spot treatment for acne or apply it generously to the skin to soothe inflammation or redness. Just remember either patch test or do plenty of research before attempting to treat sensitive skin.
Moisturize Hair and Scalp
Could your hair use a little TLC or do you wish your hair would grow just a bit longer? Aloe can boost your hair’s health and length. Here’s how:
You might know the primary protein in hair is keratin, which helps moisturize, strengthen, and repair damage to hair. But did you know that aloe has a similar make-up to that of keratin? It rejuvenates the hair using its own nutrients, which helps prevent hair breakage.
Aloe promotes healthy hair growth thanks to amino acids, fatty acids, vitamins A, C, E, and B-12, as well as a special enzyme called proteolytic enzymes. The enzymes break down dead skin cells, unclogging the hair follicles, cleanses the scalp, and then the hair can grow faster. The other good nutrients nourish the hair and keep it well-hydrated.
Suggested Use: You can use the same method as treating dandruff or you can use organic aloe vera alone as a shampoo or conditioner. If the aloe doesn’t seem to get your hair clean, mix it with your shampoo to create a lather.
