Aloe vera gel is extracted from the leaves of a thick cactus-like botanical named aloe barbadensis Miller also known as aloe vera plant. The ancient Egyptians had nicknamed this plant as “the plant of eternity” because of its healing and beautifying benefits.
They would use the gel extracted from the aloe vera plants to soothe skin dryness, sunburns, and in embalming rituals. They believed the purifying properties of aloe vera gel would magnify and prolong beauty. Throughout history, other cultures and communities around the world have used aloe vera gel for various purposes. The Indians, Chinese, and Middle Eastern communities have been using aloe vera gel to fade the appearance of scars, calm skin inflammation, and enhance the overall health of the skin and hair for centuries. Today, aloe vera gel is an active ingredient in many skincare and hair care products.
Aloe vera plant is native to tropical regions of Africa, but its cultivation has now been spread all over the world. Aloe vera gel is a clear, odorless, and viscous solution that is composed of 90% water content. It also contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, healthy fatty acids, and enzymes. It exhibits hydrating, purifying, exfoliating, soothing, and nourishing properties that improve skin's health in various ways. Majestic Pure's Aloe Vera Gelcontains fresh aloe vera gel with no added color, fragrance, or alcohol. Here are some benefits of using aloe vera gel for your skin's health:
Itchy skin is an uncomfortable condition that causes an irritating sensation on the skin, making you want to scratch. Scratching the skin leads to redness, rashes, and inflammation. Skin itchiness can occur in response to many reasons, such as dryness, medications, environmental toxins, insect bites, and infections. Aloe vera gel contains polysaccharides in its composition, which exhibits hydrating and soothing properties. It comforts skin irritation, itchiness, and keeps it hydrated and healthy. Polysaccharides promote water retention in the skin and protect it against environmental toxins and irritants that cause itchiness.
Moisturization is important for healthy and glowing skin. The skin's outer layer called epidermis is comprised of a fine film of lipids and water. The lipids and water keeps the skin moisturized, smooth and soft. This film also protects the skin from UV rays, toxins, free radicals, and bacteria. When the epidermis receives insufficient hydration, it becomes dry, which leads to irritation, cracks, and flaky patches on the skin. Aloe vera gel has vitamins A, B, C, D, and E that are known to boost skin's moisture levels, keeping it fresh, soft, and smooth. Furthermore, aloe vera gel contains minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and zinc that provide hydration to the skin and soothe dryness.
Dark spots, blemishes, and discoloration can appear anywhere on the skin because of a variety of reasons. Regular exposure to UV rays, acne, hyperpigmentation, environmental damage, aging, and hormonal changes are among the common reasons for scarring and dark spots. Aloe vera gel has antioxidant properties that cleanse, purify, and clarify the skin's texture. Its purifying properties help lighten the appearance of dark spots and blemishes. It protects the skin against germs and bacteria that cause acne breakouts. Moreover, aloe vera gel contains a compound named aloesin in its composition that is known to reduce the overproduction of melanin. When the skin produces more melanin, it gives darker color to acne scars, spots, and patches on the skin, making them more noticeable than surrounding areas.
Healthy and youthful-looking skin requires a sufficient amount of moisture. Lack of moisturization causes dryness on the skin's surface, making it appear dull, worn out, and unhealthy. Moreover, as we get older, the production of collagen and elastin fibers decreases, causing the skin to lose elasticity, firmness, and youthful glow. Aloe vera gel promotes skin's suppleness and elasticity with its hydrating properties. It helps the skin retain moisture and smoothes out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Furthermore, aloe vera gel has vitamin C, which is known to boost collagen production. In addition, due to the presence of zinc oxide in its composition, aloe vera gel tightens skin pores and keeps it looking youthful and refreshed.
Acne develops when the buildup of dirt, bacteria, dead skin cells and excess oils clog skin pores. The clogging causes inflammation and redness in skin pores, which leads to acne breakouts. Aloe vera gel has antioxidant properties that exfoliate the skin, drawing out dirt and bacteria which clog skin pores. Moreover, its purifying properties cleanse the skin's surface, keeping it healthy and clean. In addition, aloe vera gel contains salicylic acid, which helps shed dead skin cells from the skin's outer layer. It is also known to regulate the sebum secretions, preventing the skin from future breakouts.
