How are you feeling about the movement focusing on skin health with ingredients like aloe vera juice? We are totally into it! Each of us wants our skin to look and feel smooth, but there is more to the equation. Keeping skin moisturized and protected from the environment’s everyday stressors is also key to optimal skin health.
Speaking of the elements, dry skin is especially common during extreme conditions. This means extremely cold and extremely hot seasons. These harsh conditions leave skin vulnerable to cracking and feeling uncomfortably tight. Staying hydrated is essential for keeping your skin looking fresh and feeling luscious.
Juicy Skincare Rituals
One key to achieving and maintaining a healthy glow is having a skincare ritual that works for your specific needs. To help skin health from the outside, our Natural Body Creams and Rose Glow Luxe Hand Cream provide nourishment to thirsty skin.
We choose to use Organic Aloe Juice as the first ingredient instead of water because water doesn’t add any value to the hydrating creams. It feels wasteful to us to add any filler without a purpose.
When the ingredients are super concentrated, you get all the nutrient rich goodness without any fillers.
What is Aloe Vera?
Aloe vera is a succulent plant that’s been used for its healing properties for centuries. We use desert derived aloe sourced locally from Arizona’s fierce Sonoran Desert where the harsh environment produces the most concentrated juice.
The aloe vera plant is most famous for its healing abilities when applied directly to the skin. A lot of our Moms have slathered aloe vera gel on our sunburns earned by unprotected days in the sun as kids. It helps to soothe and protect skin after skin has been damaged.
This is probably a good place to remind you that sun exposure is the most damaging factor on skin aging. Please consider a mineral sunscreen to protect your skin!
Benefits of Aloe
Externally, healthy foods like aloe vera juice can have hugely positive benefits on your skin’s appearance. This can be a great compliment to your skincare routine for the ultimate glow.
Some studies have shown that drinking one glass of Aloe juice a day can have wonderful effects on your skin, keeping it healthy and clear. Aloe vera can also be eaten as a health food
The benefits of aloe vera juice are numerous, since it contains such a complex array of vitamins and antioxidants. Some of them have been found to repair and reduce skin damage from sun exposure and even the appearance of fine lines.
Aside from skin benefits, it also helps with digestion and encourages a healthy liver! Vegans and vegetarians in particular may want to drink it as a source of vitamin B12, which is rare to find in foods beyond animal products. This speaks to us as all of our skincare is completely vegan.
How Does Aloe Vera Benefit Your Skin?
Aloe contains collagen, which has been known to help repair your skin cells and protect healthy cells, giving your skin a radiant youthful glow. It has also been associated with decreasing active acne and reducing its appearance.
The folic acid, chromium, potassium and other compounds in collagen are beneficial to skin and overall good health. These nutrients allow the aloe vera juice to help prevent some visible signs of aging and helps to fight the development of future wrinkles and discourages them from deepening.
It’s also an excellent source of Vitamin C, which helps skin regenerate naturally! The vitamin breaks down free radicals that damage skin through sun exposure and air pollution that affects your skin every day.
