What are the benefits of Aloe Vera for the skin?

Aloe Vera oil for the face

In France, they call it a plant with a thousand and one benefits… Aloe Vera is a fascinating plant that’s used in many beauty formulas, and its oil contains countless ingredients that make it incredibly beneficial. So you probably won’t be surprised to know it’s a plant that we at Absolution are particularly fond of!

Why should you use Aloe Vera on the face?

Aloe Vera has been used for thousands of years, and for good reason. It has so many different, valuable properties, it’s an essential beauty ingredient. When Aloe Vera oil is used in skincare products, it offers many benefits for the skin of the face.

  • Hydrates: Aloe Vera oil has such a lightweight texture, it won’t make formulas too rich or heavy, and it works with all skin types.
  • Soothes: With its calming and refreshing properties, Aloe Vera is excellent for treating sunburn on the face.
  • Repairs: Small cuts, scratches, scrapes, irritations, etc. Aloe Vera oil will help them to heal better and faster.
  • Softens the signs of time: The polysaccharides that occur naturally in Aloe Vera oil give it very effective pro-aging benefits. It smoothes the surface of the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
  • Purifies: Thanks to the active astringents in Aloe Vera, it helps to control sebum production.

How should you use Aloe Vera oil on the face?

Aloe Vera oil is obtained by macerating Aloe Vera gel in a botanical carrier oil. The resulting naturally derived oil is infused with the properties of this plant, which originally comes from Mexico. Aloe Vera infused oil helps to hydrate the skin and can be applied directly to the face or incorporated into cosmetic products. If you want your skin to reap all the benefits of this exceptional plant – and especially if you intend to make your own infused oil – make sure you use a high-quality Aloe Vera. Its origin should be indicated, and it should have been grown in optimal conditions.

A word of caution: avoid sun exposure after applying Aloe Vera oil to the face, as it has a photosensitizing effect.
