Summer is in full swing, and it’s officially time to soak in the sun. However, too much sun exposure can cause the skin to become dry or burnt. Luckily, Aloe Vera can be used to hydrate dry skin, cool a sunburn, and benefit the skin in many other ways. On this week’s blog, TriDerma is here to tell you a bit more about Aloe Vera, and why it is a must-have for your summer skincare needs!
What is it
Aloe Barbadensis is just one of the hundreds of species of the Aloe plant, but it is the one widely known for its hundreds of healing properties. Aloe Vera is recognizable by the thick green leaves that spiral out from the inside of the plant. The thick, clear gel located within the leaves is a popular ingredient in skincare products including shaving cream, soap, and lotion. Aloe Vera gel is 99 percent water with the rest being made up of over 75 active components like vitamins, enzymes and minerals, so the plant is both hydrating and healing.
Why we love it
Aloe Vera is best known for the cooling properties that can relieve sunburn pain, but there are many other reasons we love to use Aloe Vera in every TriDerma product. First, the Aloe Vera gel found within the plant’s leaves contains a natural substance that reduces sensitivity to pain, and reduces skin inflammation. Recent studies have also shown that the antioxidants found in Aloe Vera help to improve collagen production and skin elasticity, which slows the aging of the skin. Since the Aloe Vera leaves are rich in water and nutrients, products that utilize the gel will hydrate dry skin and prevent peeling, something especially important during the summer months.
Our favorite Aloe Vera products
Since Aloe Vera is such a valuable skincare ingredient, TriDerma infuses a special AP4® Aloe Vera Complex into every single product. One of our favorite products for summer is the All Clear™ Multi-Purpose Aloe Gel, which promotes the appearance of healthy skin, hydration, and soothing relief. This product is excellent to gently remove make-up, soothe irritated skin from shaving and hydrate dry looking skin. Another great product, the Intense Fast Healing® Cream, is a concentrated cream that can be used to heal itchy, dry skin or speed up the healing process for skin issues such as burns, bruises and scars. For best use, apply to the affected area at least twice a day as consistent use will help to maintain healthy skin.
Although summer can be tough on skin, the Aloe Vera complex in each TriDerma product will help to heal and hydrate your skin, keeping it in its best shape. For more information on TriDerma’s Aloe Vera infused skincare products, visit www.triderma.com or contact us at email@example.com.
