Aloe vera has long been an all-natural solution for many hair and skin health concerns. This clear gel calms skin irritations and has been used as the go-to cure for many a scrape and sunburn. But this wondrous plant can do a lot more than calm sunburnt skin - here's just a few of its cosmetic uses.
Aloe is a fantastic natural moisturiser for your face (especially if you have oily skin) and body. Aloe moisturises without causing any extra greasiness.
Aloe can help alleviate many of the symptoms including redness, swelling and itching. Its antibacterial properties help keep new acne from forming and speeds the healing process. It also calms the skin and relieves itchiness, while at the same time cleansing away excess oil and dirt to help prevent future breakouts.
Lessens stretch marks
Aloe is so healing for the skin that it can even help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. Regular use can help repair damaged skin fibers, rejuvenate the skin and replenish collagen.
Encourages hair growth
Aloe not only helps maintain the health of your hair, but it can help encourage new hair growth too. The antibacterial and anti-fungal properties of aloe vera cleanse the scalp and promote better scalp circulation - both important aspects of hair growth. Besides that, aloe vera contains many different vitamins and minerals - such as Vitamin E and a number of B Vitamins - that are essential for growing strong, healthy hair.
Improves scalp health
Just as aloe soothes skin that has been damaged by sunburn or other irritations, it can help heal a dry and irritated scalp. For those suffering from dandruff or poor scalp health, aloe is a wonderful home remedy. Aloe calms itchy, flaky skin, diminishing dandruff and promoting healing.
Aloe's moisturising powers can also be used to restore moisture and softness to your hair. Aloe adds shine and fullness to your hair and won't leave behind a waxy residue.
