Aloe Baby


Before I talk about the benefits of Aloe Vera I just wanted to give you a short back story on my little baby Aloe Vera plant which I purchased at IKEA in June and gratefully it’s been holding up pretty well considering majority of my succulent plants have had a short life span. Every time I glimpse at my Aloe Vera plant I wonder “what beauty benefits does Aloe Vera have?” I mean instantly I knew it is used to ease sunburned skin and to heal wounds but other than that I didn’t know much about this plant that I look at and care for pretty much everyday. So I decided to do alittle research and browsed YouTube and here is what I found:

-It Mosturizes the skin with antioxidants like vitamin C & E helps keep skin hydrated and firmness
-Treats acne by stimulating new cell growth, help reduce scarring and it’s anti-inflammatory benefit helps with those occasional large painful pimples.
-Can heal serious skin conditions like Psoriasis and Eczema.
-It can reduce the appearance of recent stretch marks.

Below I posted two YouTube videos showing some informative usage of Aloe Vera:
