We all use aloe after a sunburn right? Did you know there are so many other benefits to aloe? There are 5 reasons you need to add aloe to your skincare routine. Trust me after you read the 5 reasons to add aloe to your skincare routine, you’ll be wondering why you aren’t already using it!
#1. Hydration Your skin is thirsty! You have to give your skin nutrients! Aloe locks in moisture to your skin. When your skin is hydrated it appears smoother and softer. Aloe also helps rebuild the skin’s natural moisture barrier. This will make your skin appear younger and healthier.
#2. Slows The Signs of Aging Aloe can slow the signs of aging. Hydrating your skin encourages skin regeneration which helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Once the skin is moisturized it gets plumper which will fill in those fine lines and wrinkles making you look younger. Sign me up right?!
#3. Minimize Discoloration Aloe can help prevent the effects of the skin’s enzymes responsible for skin discoloration by suppressing the UV induced hyperpigmentation and skin damaging effects of sunburns. This is why you should always put aloe on after being in the sun, even if you did not get a sunburn. As we get older we start to see sun spots and sun damage. Aloe can help minimize those discolorations on our skin.
#4. Skin Elasticity As we get older our skin does not produce as much collagen as it did when we were younger. A lack of collagen production can cause your skin to sag and you lose the elasticity. Aloe can help increase the production of collagen, naturally, which increases skin elasticity. You will look younger and healthier. Win win win!
#5 Healing Compounds Its commonly known that aloe is used for healing compounds. Vitamin A & C antioxidants that help with redness, skin irritation, and inflammation, which is why you use aloe after a sunburn. Aloe can also help alleviate the redness, acne scars, inflammation in your face. The list goes on and on. Did you know Cleopatra used aloe daily to give herself a natural glow? Aloe is such an amazing product!
Now that I’ve shared why you need aloe in your skincare routine, I’m going to share with you my top 3 products containing aloe.

Sourced from the pristine Korean island of Jeju, known for its fertile volcanic soil and lush flora, south of the Korean peninsula, this natural wonder is a natural skin smoother.
