Did you know that Aloe Vera has many benefits that help your skin stay healthy and keep you looking young?
We've put together the top four benefits of Aloe vera that can help you get healthy, glowing skin.
So, read on to find out how your skin can also benefit from this amazing ingredient.
✨1. Aloe Vera soothes skin injuries & reduces the appearance of acne scars✨
There is a good reason Aloe vera is used for many skin problems.
It soothes skin injuries by increasing collagen synthesis.
This ingredient has anti-inflammatory properties, making it the perfect choice if you have eczema or psoriasis.
It helps to calm down irritated skin and reduce redness.
Aloe Vera can also lead to healthy restoration of the skin and help in treating scars from acne.
When this ingredient is applied to the skn, it causes the pores to shrink and tighten.
That helps keep out all sorts of impurities like bacteria-laden dirt and grime.
This way, fewer germs are able to enter the skin.
✨2. Moisturising properties✨
Since Aloe vera contains substances that attract water and bind moisturise into the skin, it’s also beneficial for dry skin types.
It has cohesive effects by sticking together flaking epidermal skin cells, resulting in softer skin and improved skin integrity.
✨3.Helps reduce dark spots ✨
Want to know more about the collagen-producing effects of Aloe vera?
Those don’t just help with acne scars.
They also help you look radiant and glowy.
Hyperpigmentation, otherwise known as dark spots, is a common skin condition.
Dark spots are caused due to excessive production of melanin in the skin. They can also appear due to photoageing of skin.
According to research, two chemicals in the aloe vera plant have been shown to lighten skin pigmentation.
Aloin helps in breaking down melanin and leads to the lightening of the skin, while aloesin prevents melanin formation by inhibiting the activity of an enzyme responsible for melanin production.
✨4.Slows signs of ageing ✨
Because Aloe vera contains vitamin C and E, it stands to reason it may help prevent the formation of free radicals,
which are the molecuses that cause cell damage.
Meanwhile, the salicylic acid it contains acts as a gentle exfoliant –
and once those dead skin cells are out of the way, your other skincare products can penetrate the surface of the skin better and in result you get all their benefits.
Some studies have also shown that Aloe vera has promising effect in its ability to increase skin elasticity over time.
We’re all about using natural ingredients in our skincare line and Aloe vera is one such ingredient.

✨The science behind Aloe Vera's properties✨
Now that we’ve mentioned these four benefits, let us tell you more about the science behind this amazing ingredient.
Aloe vera is made up of several compounds like vitamins and minerals that nourish your skin.
One of its most important compounds is glycoproteins which help ease inflammation and redness from burns or other injuries as well as irritation from acne or dark spots on your face.
Then there are polysaccharides which help with healing wounds.
The final major compound is glycolic acid which exfoliates and hydrates your skin.
This helps slow the signs of ageing and make your skin look brighter and more youthful.
