Your guide to Hydrated Skin Year-Round

Three things instantly come to mind in Summer – Sun, Sunburn & Aloe Vera. Although we never intend to get sunburnt, one thing leads to another and you know, sometimes bad sunburn happens to good people.

 Inevitably, when our skin is burnt, peeling and feeling red-raw we reach for the bottle of pure Aloe Vera Gel or lotion. Not only is this centuries-old remedy tried and tested, but it’s also scientifically proven.

 Aloe Vera is not only water-dense but also contains 75 active constitutes including vitamins A, B12, C & E, along with enzymes, minerals, salicylic acids, amino acids and polysaccharides, all of which have protective effects on the skin as they have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

 Did you know that one of the biggest contributors to ageing skin is dehydration and dryness, and that Aloe Vera is not only great for soothing sunburnt skin but is also hydrating and replenishing your skin after it has been exposed to the elements, even without visible damage like sunburn?   

 When your skin is dehydrated, it is not functioning at its optimum level. This means that regular cell turnover isn’t happening, there’s a build-up of dead skin and the barrier function that is there to protect and prevent moisture loss starts to break down and weaken over time. Hydration is the secret to radiant, healthy skin.

 Aloe Vera is the ideal ingredient, not only for sunburnt skin but as an all-year-round addition to your skin and body care routines. It hydrates and nourishes dehydrated and sun-exposed skin, as well as soothes inflammation, calms irritation and supports your skin’s barrier function to maintain overall skin health.

To get the most out of your Aloe Vera based skincare, make sure you are choosing products that have a high percentage of natural or Organic Aloe Vera in them. An easy way to find this out when selecting is by looking at the product ingredient list. Look for the words Aloe Barbadensis”, (botanical name for Aloe Vera) within the first few ingredients listed on the back.
