POWER INGREDIENT: ALOEJune 3, 2015 6:22 am
Let’s talk about Aloe—a power ingredient that has been used as a remedy for a host of ailments since the 18th century. Even with all of our advancements in medicine since then, this plant remains a highly effective treatment for many conditions, particularly on the skin. It has been said to improve everything from minor burns to psoriasis to genital herpes. Ingesting aloe has been credited with lowering blood sugar levels of people with type 2 diabetes and relieving liver damage caused by alcohol.
Although those are extreme conditions, we can all benefit from incorporating this plant into our daily routines, as it is extremely hydrating and highly anti-inflammatory. Here are our favorite products, featuring aloe right now:
