Why aloe vera is magical for your skin?
It soothes sunburns and skin injuries
Aloe vera soothes sunburns and skin injuries by increasing collagen synthesis and cross-linking. This helps reduce any resulting scar tissue and speeds up wound healing. Aloe also contains compounds called aloin and anthraquinones, which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits that can help alleviate pain and promote healing.
It moisturizing skin
Since aloe vera contains humectants (substances that attract water from the air or deeper into the skin), it’s considered especially beneficial for dry skin types. Aloe specifically contains mucopolysaccharides, which bind moisture into the skin, It also has cohesive effects by sticking together flaking epidermal skin cells, resulting in softer skin and improved skin integrity.
It fades dark spots and stretch marks
There are two compounds in aloe that may fade dark spots and stretch marks: aloesin and aloin. In one study, aloesin was applied four times per day for 15 days and was found to be effective in treating UV-induced and post-acne hyperpigmentation. Another study found aloin destroyed melanin cells (an overproduction of which causes dark spots to form) in pigmented cells by blocking the activity of tyrosinase, an enzyme responsible for melanin production.
It managing acne
Aloe vera contains naturally occurring salicylic acid, urea nitrogen, cinnamic acid, phenols, and sulfur—all of which inhibit the growth of fungi, bacteria, and viruses. It also has anti-inflammatory capabilities, which suppress P. acnes, the bacteria that causes acne. Salicylic acid is currently one of the best ways to prevent acne since it sheds dead cells from the outer layer of the skin and decreases redness and inflammation.
