How might Aloe Vera benefit your skin?

You might not recognise a picture of the actual aloe vera plant as it's a cactus-like evergreen perennial succulent. This hardly sounds promising in terms of gentle skincare! Thankfully, appearances are often deceptive. As an introduction to aloe vera, here's a quick guide to some of the positive effects it has been shown to have for effective men's skincare.


We know that it's of paramount importance to avoid sunburn - especially in our often-extreme climate. But, if the worst happens, aloe vera can help to develop new skin cells and repair damaged ones. It's also noted as a soother that helps to relieve pain in such circumstances and offers the same assistance in other cases of minor burns.


A major benefit of Aloe Vera is its ability to to hydrate your skin but without the greasy aftermath of other products. It both helps to lock-in moisture and assists skin cells to bind together, leading to a smoother skin surface. It's also as good a choice for dealing with oily skin as it is for dry.


Sufferers from many skin conditions appreciate the inflammation suppressant qualities of this product. Of course, it makes sense to check before use and then test it on a small patch of skin where such conditions are present.


Fibroblast cells are part of a skin's structural framework and aloe vera can stimulate them into action. This can form part of a process which allows the skin to appear more elastic and less wrinkled than it otherwise might. 


Another action of aloe vera is to gently exfoliate dead skin cells. At the same time, it can also help other ingredients to penetrate the skin's surface. It also acts as an exfoliant to unclog pores which often lead to blackheads or pimples.


For small scuffs or cuts to your skin, aloe vera helps wounds to heal, can minimise slight scarring, and offers a level of pain relief.

If you haven't yet tried aloe vera gel as a skin health choice, the above should show why it will certainly be worth giving it a try! Unlike most skin care products on the market that use water is is main mixing agent, Men's Botanics use the power of Aloe Vera across their skincare products.
