Thus, most people wash their hand more often and apply disinfecting gel regularly since the virus broke out. Useful in the fight against Covid-19 – this new habit can unfortunately be very stressful for the skin. Therefore, hand care is becoming more important to keep the skin healthy.
With Aloe Vera we have a natural option to pamper and moisturize our skin. Numerous compounds of the succulent plant are beneficial to our health. For this article, we listed four benefits for the skin.
1. Contains Bioactive Compounds to Improve Health
Aloe Vera is a popular medicinal plant that is used in the cosmetic, pharmaceutical and food industries. Each leaf is full of a slimy tissue that stores numerous beneficial compounds to improve your health, such as vitamins, enzymes, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants.
2. Offers Antioxidant and antibacterial properties
Aloe Vera contains powerful antioxidants, which belong to a family of substances known as polyphenols. These antioxidants can help inhibit the growth of certain bacteria that can cause infections in humans. They scavenge free radicals to protect, prevent, and limit free radical damage.
3. Activates healing
Aloe Vera is most commonly used as a topical medication to treat sores, particularly burns, including sunburns. For decades, it has been the main ingredient for many ointments for the treatment of skin burns. Experimental studies comparted Aloe Vera to conventional medication with the result that the healing time of burns could be reduced by around 9 days with the use of Aloe Vera. For other types of wounds, studies suggest an acceleration of the healing process, but more research is required.
4. Improves skin and prevent wrinkles
There is preliminary evidence that topical Aloe Vera gel can slow aging of the skin. It is suggested that a topical application of the gel increases collagen production and improve skin elasticity over a 90-day period. Another study found that Aloe Vera reduces redness of the skin.
To utilize all these benefits for the skin, we added Aloe Vera extract to our TravelSmart Alcohol Gel .[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space woodmart_hide_large=”0″ woodmart_hide_medium=”0″ woodmart_hide_small=”0″ woodmart_hide_extra_small=”0″][vc_column_text text_larger=”no”]Sources:
