Many of us face a challenge to keep our skin nourished all day without making it oily or greasy. If your skin is oily, it becomes difficult to lock the right amount of moisture in your skin – the moisture that doesn’t make the skin shine the oil. The challenges for sensitive and dry skin are not different. They struggle to nourish the skin without reaction and constant need for reapplication. 

Aloe vera gel is one solution to all skin problems across all skin types. For your daily skincare routine, using aloe vera gel benefits in many ways:

  • It hydrates the skin and keeps the nourishment locked. It quickly gets absorbed by the skin because of its high absorption properties and does not form a sticky or thick layer on the skin.
  • Keeping the hydration locked makes skin supple and fresh all day. 
  • The cruel summer heat or blessed winter sun, your skin needs protection from the sun given any season. Aloe vera gel keeps the skin cool and reduces the chances of inflammation and redness.
  • It acts as a barrier between the skin and pollutants. It protects the skin from environmental aggressors. 
  • It is lightweight and does not clog the pores. This reduces the chances of breakouts and skin infections.
