What is Aloe Vera?

Aloe vera, also called the wonder plant, is a shrub. It is cultivated globally to extract aloe vera gel from the leaf. The earliest record of aloe vera use comes from the Ebers Papyrus from the 16th century BC. According to a study issued in the Indian Journal of Dermatology, Egyptians called Aloe vera the plant of immortality.’ 

The clear gel substance inside the plant leaves has a gooey texture. However, it is highly nourishing, so it is recommended worldwide for medicinal, healing, beauty, and skincare. It is enriched with seventy-five potentially active constituents – vitamins, minerals, enzymes, sugars, lignin, saponins, amino acids, and salicylic acids. 

How Does Aloe Vera Help With Skin Brightening?

There’s limited scientific evidence suggesting that aloe vera gel may help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmented areas, though it won’t completely fade darker spots. It is enriched with nutrients (aloin and aloesin) known to have skin-lightening properties. 

These compounds help lighten hyperpigmentation by destroying enzymes that secrete melanin and prevent its formation. It also has ‘lignin’ that helps make your skin feel intensely hydrated after the application. Another compound, anthraquinone, helps remove dead skin cells and thus lightens darker patches.

Note: Our Aloe Vera Gel also has vitamin E that deeply nourishes the skin and seals moisture. Its regular application helps make the skin soft and supple.

Hydrates Skin | Soothes Irritated Skin

This moisturizing ingredient reduces the appearance of red spots and blemishes and makes skin look brighter. In addition, it is known to improve cell turnover, which is the process of shedding mature skin cells and replacing them with healthy cells. This process is the foundation for healthy skin as the skin becomes thinner and naturally fades fine lines, smile lines, and wrinkles.

How to Use Aloe Vera Gel on Face at Night?

  1. You can begin with your aloe vera face pack with orange peel powder to refine your skin complexion and ward off fine lines and dark patches. Mix two tablespoons of Mamaearth Aloe Turmeric Gel with one tablespoon of orange peel powder. Now apply it to the skin, giving your face a gentle massage. Leave it for 10 minutes and rinse off with cold water. 
  2. You can also mix aloe vera, raw milk, and honey to make yourself a skin-lightening face pack. To do so, mix equal amounts of aloe vera gel and milk and add a little bit of honey till you get a fine paste. Then, you can use a brush or fingers to apply the mask to your face. Rinse off when dry. Using this face mask twice a week will impart a radiant skin complexion. 
  3. You can use lemon zest powder and use aloe vera gel on face at night. Mix two tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel with two tablespoons of lemon zest powder and make a thick paste. Apply this face pack, massaging to boost blood circulation. Rinse off with cold water.

Benefits of Aloe Vera for Skin Brightening

The aloe vera plant is a natural source of antioxidants and vitamins like A, B, C, and E. In addition, the healing properties of this plant are popular due to the presence of seven essential amino acids that strive hard to keep the skin healthy and glowing.

The following pointers explain why you should include aloe vera in your skin care regimen and the benefits of adding this magical ingredient to your daily skincare routine. Ayurvedic contexts have recorded aloe vera benefits for skin brightening and have been popular in the Indian subcontinent. 

  1. It moisturizes the skin

Aloe vera is made up of 96% water, so it deeply hydrates the skin without leaving it oily or greasy. This gel plant-based ingredient binds the skin cells together, resulting in smoother and supple skin. This is an excellent face moisturizer for oily, acne-prone, and sensitive skin types because it is lightweight and easily available.

  1. Soothes sunburns 

Do you know aloe vera can soothe sun damage? Yes, this enriching agent has certain compounds called polysaccharides that help treat skin infections, rashes, redness, and itchiness. The antifungal properties of this gel-based plant make it an ideal treatment for heat boils and cysts in summer. No wonder aloe vera is an all-around ingredient in summer skin care. 

Various studies have shown that aloin, responsible for the plant’s anti-inflammatory properties, helps slow down the peeling that sometimes occurs with sunburns. So, if your skin has visible signs of UV damage like sunburn, or dark spots, you can apply aloe vera gel to get relief. 

Some advice: If you have severe burns or wounds, abstain from using aloe vera gel on the affected area. Medical treatments by your healthcare professionals make the best solution for severe cases instead of home remedies. 

  1. Exfoliates the skin gently

We all know the importance of skin exfoliation in skin brightening and lightening. Ideally, you should exfoliate your skin once or twice a week, depending on your skin type, and use face toner later. Aloe vera is known as the best exfoliator for dry or sensitive skin. It also has antibacterial properties that help remove bacterial infections. 

You can also mix a bit of this gel with your regular scrubber and make your physical exfoliator at home. Aloe vera prevents the skin’s essential oils from leaving the skin and replenishes lost moisture. Mixed with its gel, a scrub face wash will also help unclog the pores, slough dead skin cells, and shield the skin from bacteria.

  1. Fights acne and marks 

This plant-based gel’s anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties also help you avoid acne. Aloe vera face gel is saturated with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that tame acne-causing bacteria. The bacterial buildup is the main cause of acne and pimples on oily or acne-prone skin. 

Therefore, a small amount of aloe vera gel on the acne would help heal and avert its growth.

Besides, it is perfect for addressing acne scars and blemishes left behind by zits or pimples. Add one or two drops of Tea Tree Oil enriched face cream to aloe vera gel to maximize the benefits and massage it well into your skin. Should we wash our face after applying aloe vera gel? Yes, you should clean your face with cold water after 10-15 minutes of application of aloe vera gel.

  1. Enhances skin elasticity 

As the skin matures, it loses elasticity and collagen; consequently, smile lines and crow’s feet appear. These noticeable changes in the photoaged human skin can be tackled with the consistent use of aloe vera in skin care. It adds a dollop of hydration to the skin and restores lost radiance. It also works on premature signs of aging, including fine lines, hyperpigmentation, age spots, and wrinkles. 

  1. Treats skin eczema

Due to its health and medicinal properties, aloe vera is touted as “the universal cure” for almost every skin condition. Its moisturizing and hydrating properties relieve itchiness, moisturize dry skin, and reduce eczema. Aloe vera gel also helps relieve the inflammation that comes with psoriasis. 

  1. Depuffs eyes and reduces dark circles

You think you can’t do much about the most annoying skin concern- dark circles, but that’s not true. Aloe vera works as a trustworthy cure that helps depuff swollen eyes and surrounding circles- aloe vera. Packed with antioxidants and vitamin E, it helps with skin discoloration while its cooling effect works on puffy eyes. 

Applying aloe vera gel around the eyes in your PM skincare regimen is a great way to fade dark circles. Just be safe about the application (use only a small amount), and don’t apply it too close to the edge of your eyelid. 

We recommend you opt for Mamaearth Vitamin C Serum for better better results through the goodness of natural ingredients like Vitamin C, Gotu Kola and Niacinamide.

Side Effects of Aloe Vera Gel

Since using aloe vera is a common skin care practice used by almost everyone, it might surprise you that using aloe vera in a liberal amount may have side effects. Generally, it is safe to use aloe vera on every skin type, but you should still check if you have any skincare disorders or any burns that may hurt the progress.
