THERE ARE MANY BENEFITS OF ALOE VERA AND AT MARZENA WE VALUE EFFICACY OVER OLD WIVES TALES. IN THE POINTS BELOW WE SHINE A LIGHT ON ALOE VERA AND HOW THIS MAGIC PLANT FITS OUR ETHOS OF USING NATURAL INGREDIENTS:
1. Dry Skin relief:
Aloe Vera can keep your skin clear and hydrated if applied regularly. Aloe Vera plants thrive in harsh climates by storing water in their dense leaves. They contain complex carbohydrates which are active ingredients in effective moisturisers. It can be very helpful for those with skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis - the moisturizing effects of aloe can help alleviate dry, itchy skin.
2. Burn relief:
Aloe Vera is widely known to soothe skin after receiving minor burns. Try it for yourself the next time you nick your finger on a hot pan.
3. Small abrasions:
Of you get a tiny cut, graze or open wound, Aloe Vera does wonders in sealing the area and relieving discomfort. Use three times a day and keep the area clean.
While Aloe Vera does not prevent acne, it is anti-imflammatory so inflammed acne such as pustules and nodules can be treated with aloe vera if used regularly.
While aloe vera helps soothe sunburn, it is not an effective way to prevent sunburn, so make sure you wear sun protection every day!
