Benefits of Aloe Vera for Skin
An ancient hydrating-hero, a soothing succulent or a fun spiky cactus-esque plant from the tropics. What is aloe vera? It’s all of these things and possibly more. With 95% water content in dense gel-filled leaves, this botanical legend has accumulated saint-like status in medicinal and beauty circles over (literally) thousands of years.
A CALMING SKINCARE ROUTINE FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
We hear lots about healthy daily routines, but how on earth does it apply to an aloe vera skin care routine? Well, healthy routines take the stress out of life, because a good habit is something we simply don’t have to think about, yet it’s doing us good. Bravo! Sensitive skin really likes a routine because it can react more to the unpredictability of the environment and even our emotions. Think of your aloe for sensitive skin routine as a mini daily-massage, the soft stroking action with gentle aloe could help you and your skin feel a whole lot more zen.
STEP 1: Gently remove makeup
No, don’t skip this step and head straight for the pillow! Especially not with sensitive skin, as makeup can and will clog pores and irritate skin. Aloe Calming Cream Cleanser takes the bore out of this chore – pop on a cotton pad and it will help to melt away impurities. Or if a good lather is more your thing, Aloe Calming Face Wash is the one. Make sure you rinse both well with a splash or two of water.
STEP 2: Brighten up with a caress of toner
Toner too, really? We know! But the thing is, and as shocking as this may sound, we shed 600,000 particles of skin every day. That means we need to remove dulling dead skin cells as well as makeup. And we all want to shine bright, right? So get in the habit of a post-cleansing refreshing swipe of Aloe Calming Toner on a cotton pad, to help new skin cells get centre stage.
STEP 3: Tenderly moisturise
All brave come-rain-or-shine faces need the right moisturiser as the grand finale to any skin care routine. The skin on our faces being the thinnest on our body, and sensitive skin needing that extra level of soothing and protecting – our aloe moisturising team are the best in the business. Try our early bird, Aloe Soothing Day Cream for a hydrating partner that will help to restore moisture and protect your face from environmental ruffians all day long. And when bedtime beckons, sensitive skin will breathe a sigh of relief for the velvety texture of our Aloe Soothing Night Cream. Ahh, off to the land of nod we go.
