My fascination with the Korean beauty regimen led me to uncharted territories. Had you told me a year ago that I’d be scrounging for good finds at Nature Republic or Etude House, I would’ve laughed. But my pursuit for healthy and smooth skin brought me to such stores and now, I am forever grateful.
Currently, one of my absolute faves is Nature Republic’s 92% Aloe Vera Soothing Gel.
It started with a close tita friend recommending the shop’s Aloe Vera face mist. According to her, it was perfect for those “Wait Lang, Stressed Na Ako” moments working girls have. Once I visited the nearest branch, the saleslady informed me that they had a promo; instead of buying just the face mist, I can also get the gel for half the price.
The mist was the first thing on my mind, but when I got down to it, the gel was the lifesaver I never knew I needed.
Aloe Vera and the Skin
It’s no secret that aloe vera is one of your skin’s best Apart from treating unpleasant sunburns, the gel from to so-called ‘miracle plant’ also serves as moisturizer for all skin types, counterattack to acne, and fights aging.
I’ve always wondered if aloe vera can do so much more than just treat your skin.
Apparently, it can.
Here’s what I found out:
Good for Canker Sores
Ever been cranky due to canker sores (aka the infamous singaw)? These unpleasant mouth ulcers usually develop inside the mouth or under the lip and usually lasts for 7 to 10 days.
Studies show that regular aloe vera treatment soothes and accelerates the healing process of mouth ulcers. To treat cold sores, most dentists recommend applying aloe vera lip gel or balm three times a day until the lesion dries.
Moisturizes Hair and Scalp
If you’re tired of having one too many bad hair days, aloe vera should be one of your new go-to treatments. It serves as an awesome natural treatment for cases of dry hair or itchy scalp. Its nourishing properties, as well as vitamins and minerals, keep the hair strong and healthy. Aloe vera’s anti-bacterial properties keep dandruff away by clearing the scalp of dead enzymes.
Better Digestion and Immune System with Aloe Vera
Aloe vera juice is a lifesaver for people suffering from indigestion. The juice’s anti-inflammatory and laxative components normalize the pH and acid/alkaline balance, as well as lessen yeast formation, which regularizes bowel movement and encourages digestive bacteria.
Also, the enzymes in this miracle plant breaks down digested food’s proteins, turning these into enzymes, which fuel the body’s cells for proper function. Aloe Vera’s bradykinase boosts your immune system and kills infection, making it a great partner for better health.
There’s more to aloe vera than just the sticky plant that keeps the skin healthy. This miracle plant lives up to its expectations — which means you should definitely give it a try.
