Say Hello To Aloe!
Let us first understand what is aloe vera. The thick, green, goopy gel your mom used to make you use every now and then seemed to have found a place in your fancy bottles of serums, moisturizers, and face washes. This short-stemmed shrub known for its medicinal qualities was discovered in ancient Egypt and was considered as a "plant of immortality". Unlike its appearance, this wonder ingredient has umpteen benefits.
Aloe Vera has actually been in beauty books for centuries, but it was rediscovered for its amazing qualities only a few decades ago. It is unique in its properties and the gel or the translucent sap of this plant can rid you of almost all your skin woes.
Why Use Aloe Vera On Your Skin?

Aloe Vera has powerful benefits and whether your skin is oily, dry or sensitive, it just works it's magic on every skin type. Your skin will definitely love it for its soothing, cooling, and moisturizing properties.
You may be surprised to know that aloe vera is loaded with minerals, vitamins, enzymes, sugars, lignin, saponins, salicylic acids, and amino acids that make your skin radiant and even regenerates the dead skin. Because it contains all the vitamins and antioxidants, aloe vera is known for being extremely hydrating for the skin.
