SOOTHES SKIN IRRITATION
Itchy skin is very uncomfortable and irritating for everybody. But scratching the skin leads to redness, rashes, and inflammation which is a big problem.
Skin itchiness can occur in response to many reasons, such as dryness, medications, environmental toxins, insect bites, and infections. Dermadoc Aloe vera Gel contains polysaccharides in its composition, which help to hydrate and soothe skin.
Applying Aloe Vera Gel helps to comfort skin irritation, itchiness, and keeps skin Hydrated and Healthy. Polysaccharides promote water retention in the skin and protect it against environmental toxins and irritants that cause itchiness.
MOISTURIZES THE SKIN
Anyone who suffers from dry skin knows that moisturizing is an important factor for healthy and strong skin.
The skin’s outer layer called epidermis is comprised of a fine film of lipids and water. The lipids and water keep the skin moisturized, smooth and soft. This film also protects the skin from UV rays, toxins, free radicals, and bacteria. When the epidermis receives insufficient hydration, it becomes dry, which leads to irritation, cracks, and flaky patches on the skin.
Aloe vera gel has vitamins A, B, C, D, and E that are known to boost skin’s moisture levels, keeping it fresh, soft, and smooth. Furthermore, aloe vera gel contains minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and zinc that provide hydration to the skin and soothe dryness.
HELPS FADE THE DARK SPOTS
Dark spots, blemishes, and discoloration can appear anywhere on the skin because of a variety of reasons. Regular exposure to UV rays, acne, hyperpigmentation, environmental damage, aging, and hormonal changes are among the common reasons for scarring and dark spots.
Aloe vera gel has antioxidant properties that cleanse, purify, and clarify the skin’s texture. Its purifying properties help lighten the appearance of dark spots and blemishes. It protects the skin against germs and bacteria that cause acne breakouts. Moreover, aloe vera gel contains a compound named aloe Sin in its composition that is known to reduce the overproduction of melanin. When the skin produces more melanin, it gives darker color to acne scars, spots, and patches on the skin, making them more noticeable than surrounding areas.
PROVIDES SKIN WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED
Healthy and youthful-looking skin requires a sufficient amount of moisture. Lack of moisturization causes dryness on the skin’s surface, making it appear dull, worn out, and unhealthy. Moreover, as we get older, the production of collagen and elastin fibers decreases, causing the skin to lose elasticity, firmness, and youthful glow.
Aloe vera gel promotes skin’s suppleness and elasticity with its hydrating properties. It helps the skin retain moisture and smoothest out the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Furthermore, aloe vera gel has Vitamin C which is known to boost collagen production. In addition, due to the presence of zinc oxide in its composition, aloe vera gel tightens skin pores and keeps it looking youthful and refreshed.
SOOTHES ACNE-PRONE SKIN
Acne develops when the buildup of dirt, bacteria, dead skin cells and excess oils clog skin pores. The clogging causes inflammation and redness in skin pores, which leads to acne breakouts. Aloe vera gel has antioxidant properties that exfoliate the skin, drawing out dirt and bacteria which clog skin pores. Moreover, its purifying properties cleanse the skin’s surface, keeping it healthy and clean. In addition, aloe vera gel contains salicylic acid, which helps shed dead skin cells from the skin’s outer layer. It is also known to regulate the sebum secretions, preventing the skin from future breakouts.
