They love recommending it for almost every other skin problem.
Uniqaya has a wide range of cleansers, moisturizers, sunscreens, night creams, and serums having aloe vera in them. Yes, in all of them. Because, why not? When you have an ingredient with such a versatile nature, going with every skin type then how can we ignore it?
If you are still not sure why we brag about Aloe vera so much, then, you need to know why Dermatologists recommend Aloe vera for the face.
Aloe Vera for face - According to Dermatologists
Like, there is Lion - the king of the Jungle. Aloe vera can easily be considered the king of all ingredients. There are multiple benefits of aloe vera on the face due to its calming and soothing properties.
According to Joel Schlessinger, M.D., Omaha-based board-certified dermatologist, and cosmetic surgeon, “Aloe vera is a cactus-like plant known for its healing and medicinal properties. Its stems store water, creating a clear, gel-like substance in the leaves, which contains vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids.”
When you apply aloe vera-based skin care products on your face, it increases the formation of collagen in your skin. This helps in reducing fine lines and wrinkles from your skin. On regular application, your skin tightens and also improves its elasticity naturally. It also solves the biggest problem of sunken eyes which is loose skin around your eyes. Along with moisturizing the skin, aloe vera works as an anti-aging agent.
Most importantly, if you want to get rid of your forehead wrinkles, gently massage aloe vera on it regularly. You will see the difference yourself.
According to Kim Chang, an aesthetician with the Baylor Aesthetics Studio, “Aloe vera doesn’t reverse your skin from aging, but helps prevent you from getting deeper wrinkles and lines”.
As an Under Eye Cream
If you are among that 80% of people who have sunken eyes or dark circles or redness under your eyes, then aloe vera is the ingredient you must look for in your under-eye cream. It works magic for removing dark circles. But, always remember that the area under your eyes is quite sensitive. So, always do a patch test before directly applying aloe vera under your eyes. Even while applying, go smooth. Massage gently with your ring finger.
Aloe vera contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and vitamin C, and is highly anti-inflammatory. Thus, give your eyes the soothing effect they deserve.
“The active ingredients in the aloe plant—vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and peptides work to heal skin from a variety of minor ailments, It's even been shown to expedite wound healing”, says Dr. Sonia Batra, a board-certified dermatologist and co-host of The Doctors.
Soothe a Sunburn
Aloe vera has a soothing property to heal sunburn on your skin. The extract soothes the redness and itchiness of the skin quickly. It moisturizes the skin and helps to prevent the dryness normally caused due to sun damage. It gives a cooling sensation to the skin and relieves the pain. According to Dr. Makhzoumi, a well-known dermatologist, you should try your best to avoid a sunburn in the first place. Before going outdoors, apply a good layer of broad-spectrum sunscreen SPF 50 to protect your skin from burns.
So, now that you know that there are enormous benefits of aloe vera for a face. Go and find out the best stem from your aloe vera plant. Wash a little bit. Cut a few slices out of it and try to take out as much gel as possible. A single stem has a lot of it. Stir well and apply this fresh aloe vera extract all over your face.
