At this time of the year sun sense is at an all-time high, but despite our best efforts, we’ll all suffer a little sun exposure from time to time.
The aloe plant is perhaps one of the easiest, best and cheapest treatments for sun exposure available, and can be grown right in your backyard. Aloe boasts an abundance of health benefits from treating burns, wounds and sun exposure to reducing the signs of ageing through its extremely effective moisturising, hydrating and skin firming properties.
In Ayurvedic medicine, Aloe is used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne and eczema.
The Aloe plant is made up of 99% water with the remaining 1% comprising a magnificent mixture of protein, enzymes, amino acids, polysaccharides, minerals and antioxidants beta-carotene and Vitamin A, C and E.
It is this rich level of nutrients that gives Aloe its spectacular health-giving effects, from the acceleration of burns healing and the prevention of wrinkles to the reduction of acne, blemishes and stretch marks and its nourishing effect on dry, taut skin.
Bee Loved uses the thick, nutritious juice in a number of its natural skincare products to stimulate the skin’s circulation, which supports the skin to preserve its natural moisture. Shop Bee Loved’s free from products here.
