To that modest little plant that many of us have at home and we don't give it the credit it deserves, its time has finally come to shine.
Many of us have one of these plants at home, or at least we have a relative or acquaintance with one. Grandmothers recommend it for everything and for decades they have sold it to us as a miraculous plant and we have not paid much attention to it. But after years of extensive research we have verified that this advertising from our grandmothers is even better than how they sell it to us. Aloe Vera has numerous beneficial properties for our health, and for the skin it is even better. Here we leave you 6 main benefits of Aloe Vera:
1- Anti-inflammatory and reduces redness
It is one of the best remedies to combat the negative effects of the sun on our skin. Its richness in antioxidants and minerals accelerate the healing process, which will make your skin return to its natural state more quickly. It also fights redness and irritation.
2- Deep hydration
Penetrates deeper than other moisturizing agents, it is capable of penetrating the 3 layers of the skin (epidermis, dermis, hypodermis) faster than water, which makes it capable of acting at the cellular level, oxygenating and strengthening the cells of the skin.
3- Promotes Healing
This plant is highly beneficial for the healing of burns and wounds, accelerating the healing process while multiplying cell reproduction 8 times faster than normal.
Due to its abundance of Vitamin C, E and Beta-carotenes, makes it a very useful anti-aging tool. These properties stimulate the natural production of collagen, which helps to maintain hydration in the skin for a longer time, preventing the appearance of the first signs of aging.
5- Reduces infections and acne
Its antimicrobial properties treat pimples and acne breakouts in the most gentle way and without causing damage to the skin. It is also antiseptic, which helps protect the skin from bacteria.
6- Lightens blemishes and spots
Due to its accelerating power of cell reproduction, it reduces redness and fights inflammation. It is also a good natural treatment for acne scars and stretch marks.
This is the reason why at MYOKŌ we use Aloe Vera as the base of all our products instead of water like most cosmetic products. In this way we make sure that all our other active ingredients act in the most effective way possible, giving you the best results.
