3 Uncommon Yet Amazing Reasons To Use Aloe Vera Besides Sunburns

Aloe vera isn’t just for sunburns and bug bites.

This versatile and affordable cactus is one of the most useful plants that you can easily raise and harvest at home.

In fact, a NASA study showed that cacti such as aloe can help absorb and reduce our exposure to electromagnetic radiation, often referred to as EMF radiation1.

Did you know that you can even eat aloe?

Find out the regenerative properties of affordable aloe vera for your health and skin.

Aloe in Asian Skin Care Culture

Have you heard of K-beauty or Korean skin care and how great the products are?

Aloe vera is a common ingredient in many Korean skin care products.

However, the practice of using aloe vera for the face goes way beyond Korea and our current generation.

It’s common to hear about Korean, Chinese, Japanese, and Vietnamese grandmothers slathering fresh aloe vera all over their skin.

In Asian skin care culture, aloe is said to not only help hydrate against wrinkles and soothing coolness, but also brighten and ward off wrinkles.

After a hot, sunny day outside or at the beach, massaging the skin with aloe helps cool down the skin to prevent excess melanin from forming2.

3 Ways To Get The Most Out Of Aloe

Our daily habits and routines give us lasting benefits that are absolutely worthwhile.

Plus, these self care moments contribute to a healthy sense of self worth and confidence.

Aloe is not only affordable, it’s effective and provides multi-tasking benefits.

Here are 3 ways to get the most out of aloe vera:

Hydrating Face Mask

Immediately boost hydration against flakey skin, acne, and premature wrinkles with this simple yet multi-tasking wash-off mask.

On clean skin, apply a thick layer of pure aloe vera gel all over the face and leave it on for 10 to 20 minutes. Rinse lightly with cool water and apply the rest of your skin care routine.

Did you know that hot water and excess heat on the face can lead to skin dryness?

Keep your skin cool with this aloe mask during your shower to get the most out of your bath routine.

Dandruff Scalp Mask

Whether you have dandruff or not, keeping your scalp cool and hydrated can help support full, thick, and shiny hair.

The scalp overheating can trigger premature hair loss.

Section clean, dry hair and apply pure aloe vera gel onto the scalp and massage to spread.

Leave on for 10 to 20 minutes and rinse with cool water. No need to shampoo or condition after. But we do recommend applying your favorite leave-in conditioner to seal in hydration.

Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe vera juice can be found sweetened and bottled up at your local Asian grocery store. 

However, at health food stores you can find a much healthier version of supplement grade aloe vera juice.

From heartburn to constipation relief, aloe vera provides antioxidants and minerals to support digestive health3.

You can add a couple tablespoons to your favorite juice to enjoy all the benefits easily.

How To Shop For Aloe

No need for a pricey product, aloe vera gels and juices are affordable and easy to shop for.

When shopping for an aloe vera skin care product, here are the key points to look for:

  • No parabens or fragrance/parfum
  • High concentration of aloe vera
  • If you want a skin care product made with aloe vera instead of just aloe vera gel, look for aloe vera extract and not just aloe vera juice

When it comes to shopping for aloe vera juice, here are the key points to look for:

  • No high fructose corn syrup or corn syrup
  • No high sugar content

Our promise

Healthy is beautiful and beauty should never cost us our health. Let's face the truth: women are the beauty industry's most important customers but we're not getting the VIP treatment we deserve. Research shows that toxic chemicals present in many skincare products can interfere with our hormonal health. With the lack of regulation in the beauty industry it's up to us to call out these toxic chemicals in personal care products to keep these brands on their toes. So as women together we're taking a stand for fertility' sake.
