Aloe vera is an ingredient that’s been around for eons… however, that doesn’t make it any less effective! Apart from hydrating the skin, this natural wonder also works to soothe irritation, balance the skin and lighten up dark spots. What truly sets it apart, however, is the fact that it’s suitable for all types of complexions, be it oily, dry, sensitive or blemished. Whilst there’s nothing like using the pure gel from the leaf directly, it can be difficult for those who are in a hurry. Luckily, the beauty industry has taken note and incorporated this ingredient into a host of amazing products! Read on to learn about them.
1. Himalaya Moisturizing Aloe Vera Face Wash
This soap-free cleanser is a must-have in my opinion. The blend of cucumber and aloe vera purifies the skin, whilst imparting a cool and calming sensation. Unlike many face washes, this formula never makes the face feel tight, dry or flaky.
2. Forest Essentials Aloe Vera Juice
If you prefer a more concentrated formulation, look no further than this tonic. The weightless concoction deeply hydrates the skin and fortifies the moisture barrier. Whilst you can use it by itself, it also works well when mixed with other skincare products.
3. Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator
This little jar has been a saviour for my rosacea-prone skin. The cream-gel hybrid consistency sinks into my face quickly and helps keep flare-ups at bay. Every time I use it, I notice that my complexion looks smoother and plumped up.
4. Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask
Looking for a quick fix? Turn to this powerful mask. The calendula extract helps deal with excess sebum production and alleviates any irritation, whilst the aloe vera quenches the dry patches. Leave it on for at least 5 minutes to reap the benefits.
5. Mario Badescu Facial Spray With Aloe, Herbs And Rosewater
Whether you are aiming to refresh your makeup or are tired of the dry climate in your office, this mist has got your back. The revitalising formula tones, moisturises and cools down the skin, whilst imparting a healthy glow to your face.
6. Nivea Aloe Vera Body Lotion
This non-greasy body lotion is brilliant at its job. The fast-absorbing formula provides nourishment to your skin, without leaving behind any residue. With winter coming up soon, it’s definitely time to stock up on this formula!
7. The Body Shop Aloe Calm Hydration Sheet Mask
If you travel frequently, consider getting your hands on this sheet mask. Suitable for even those with sensitive skin, this gentle mask keeps skin hydrated, fresh and balanced.
