Aloe vera : Herb of Perennial goodness
One of the primary reasons why we age rapidly is due to inflammation on our skin. When our skin gets inflamed, it slowly damages our skin structure and makes it look old, patchy and wrinkly. Skin inflammation can occur due to many reasons, oxidative stress, harmful UV rays, pollution, and allergies are only some of them. The most common signs of inflamed skin are rashes, swelling, redness, itchiness, irritation, and burning sensation.
Overall, inflammation makes our skin feel pretty uncomfortable. There’s one natural plant that immediately comes to our mind when we wish to soothe inflamed skin and that is Aloe Vera.
What is Aloe Vera?
Aloe Vera is an evergreen perennial plant that can easily grow in our backyard. It is a succulent plant with sticky gel-like fluid present in its thorny leaves. It is majorly used for its medicinal and edible purposes.
Aloe Vera has been used for its medicinal properties for centuries. It is used as a food flavoring substance, it helps in reducing dental plaques, it also reduces constipation, and lowers down blood sugar levels. Apart from these, Aloe Vera provides many other benefits, which is why it is considered as a “wonder plant”.
Why use Aloe Vera in Skincare?
Aloe Vera has wonderful antioxidant properties that help our skin stay protected from the oxidative stress caused by free radicals in and around us. The antioxidants in Aloe Vera neutralize the free radicals to reduce the damage caused by them to our skin.
Aloe Vera also protects our skin from the UV radiation and the harm it causes to our skin. It has anti-inflammatory properties that soothe burns, rashes, and redness. Aloe Vera helps to speed-up the process of wound healing and doesn’t allow it to leave scars behind.
This wondrous plant has so much to offer us and that’s why Bee Elite Essentials has used Aloe Vera and other such extremely potent skincare ingredients to craft the Ageless skincare range.
