Aloe Vera!

We all know what Aloe is.
We know that when we get sunburned, we need to use Aloe to sooth the pain and help treat the burns.
It seems as though with every competing cosmetic product for better skin is displayed on our TV's, on billboards and suggested by those who we seek professional help from, we forget that the most simple items, the one's right in front of us can lead to the best results.

Aloe is incredible for your skin.
Better than any of these products that we pay hundreds of dollars for, wasting our money on the hopes that it MIGHT do the trick.
Just read about Aloe Vera below and you decide for yourself whether you want to keep buying Proactive, Clear Skin and all of these other money sucking products that can't own up to their promises.

Aloe is full of vitamins!
Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C, and E.

Being used as a topical product, let's go through this and figure out exactly what all of these vitamins are good for.
Vitamin A - Supports cell growth.
We (should) all know that B vitamins are necessary for healthy hair, skin, and nails.
Additionally, they help convert food into energy and create red blood cells.
Vitamin C - Necessary for growth and repair of all tissue throughout your body.
Vitamin E - Antioxidants that help protect your body tissue from damage from free radicals (substances that can harm cells, organs, tissue, etc.)

Aloe is also full of minerals -- to name a few:
Calcium - Helps with cell renewal, lipid barrier function, and antioxidants.
Iron - Helps transport oxygen throughout the body.
Potassium - Moves nutrients into cells and waste products out of cells.
Zinc - Aids wound healing.

Your skin is a living thing.
It needs vitamins and minerals to be healthy just like the rest of your body.
You skin is made of cells and tissue, these vitamins are essential for keeping all of these cells and tissue alive!
The minerals aid in the process of keeping or obtaining healthy skin and all of this can be found in a bottle of Aloe Vera from the dollar store!
So you tell me...
what do you think is more worth your money?
Products that are created in a lab with chemicals and cost an arm and a leg?
Or something that was created naturally from the soil on the ground that is filled with every vitamin and mineral that your body needs to stay healthy?
I'll let you make the decision.

Quit paying for all of the ad's that promise you better, beautiful and more healthy looking skin.
Go to the store and pay $5 for a bottle of Aloe, because I promise you it will work better than anything else you try.

I highly recommend that we keep Aloe as a topical product, though it can be ingested orally.
Just a heads up; if you're wild enough to actually swallow Aloe, have a lot of toilet paper handy because it acts as a natural laxative.
Perhaps some of you could find this beneficial as well, but I definitely wouldn't suggest swallowing it...
just drink coffee if you need a laxative.

Helmi, aloe is definitely my go to. I have oily and dry combination skin, so it's works to balance out the dryness and then it helps protect against acne from the dirt getting into my pores every day. I love the stuff :)

I read an article(I don't remember the one) that mentioned aloe containing trace amounts of salicylic acid. I recently started using it as anti-acne moisturizer. I rarely find a lotion that I trust, but the aloe gel works well to control oil without drying. So far, so good.
