Aloe vera gel is commonly used for soothing sunburns, but it has some other beauty care applications as well.
Aloe vera is rich in vitamins C and E as well as beta carotene, which is a pre-cursor to vitamin A. These are key nutrients for helping to improve the appearance of our skin.
Aloe vera has been shown to be effective for treating wounds by increasing the blood supply to the wound and stimulating healing activities of the skin (scab formation). Additionally, aloe vera has anti-mircobial properties that can fight against infection from viruses, bacteria, and fungus.
