HOW TO USE ALOE VERA ON YOUR SKIN

Aloe vera is a juicy plant made up of 85% water rich in minerals, amino acids and vitamins. It has remarkable benefits for our skin, hair and nails, provided that it is used correctly. Here is how to use Aloe vera on your skin as a beauty-boosting ingredient :

#1 ALOE VERA AS MOISTURIZER

Aloe vera-based moisturizers make a great daily cream. Moisturising, nourishing and softening, they are perfect for both dry and oily skin - they hydrate without overloading your skin and won't leave a greasy film! Get your skin its daily boost of hydration with our Hydra Genius moisturizers with Aloe vera designed to suit every skin type.

#2 ALOE VERA FOR BURNS

Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties, we use Aloe vera as treatment for burns. Just mix pure Aloe vera gel with vitamin E oil to form a balm that can be directly applied to burns.

#3 ALOE VERA AS AN ANTI-AGING TREATMENT

Aloe vera moisturizer has turbo-charged anti-aging properties that pump our skin with all the nutrients and vitamins needed to prevent dry skin and the appearance of wrinkles. Its antioxidants also combat free radicals that cause premature skin aging.

#4 ALOE VERA AS AN AFTERSUN

Aloe vera's soothing gel benefits make it the perfect aftersun remedy! Let the gel dry to form a protective, transparent film to calm hot skin after a day in the sun.

#5 ALOE VERA AS A SCRUB

When used as a scrub, Aloe vera removes dead cells, boosts cell renewal and hydrates your skin. Nourishing and moisturising, Aloe vera scrubs feed your skin vitamins and trace elements. Added plus: its healing properties means it can repair the epidermis and boost your skin's micro-circulation.

#6 ALOE VERA AS A MAKEUP PRIMER

Pure Aloe vera gel has a texture that works really well as a primer: its hydrating and smoothing properties prepare your skin for makeup that looks matt and natural.

#7 ALOE VERA AS A HYDRATING MASK

Pure Aloe vera gel contains 85% mineral- and vitamin-rich water and has exceptional hydrating power, strengthened by its poly- and monosaccharide content (sugars that are capable of retaining water). The perfect ingredient for a face mask is Aloe vera!

#8 ALOE VERA FOR OILY SKIN

Aloe vera is also great matifier, even for oily skin, as it is non-comedogenic (it won’t clog pores) and astringent, making it effective at combating acne and dealing with oil excess.
