Since the sun is starting to shine, and tanning season is now upon us, our pale skin from the winter is finally becoming exposed to those harsh UV rays. From all the time that I have spent away from the sun, I believe I forget that when the weather app says that the UV index is at a 10…. It really is at a 10. Sunburns are not pleasant at all, but we all seem to experience them at one point or another, which means that we need a way to help sooth the burning sensation and dryness of our skin!

You might have heard throughout your life about the gooey, plant-based Aloe Vera to help heal your fresh sunburn. This all natural substance is amazing for healing the epithelial level of your skin, which is the outer-layer of cells that cover your body (the skin that you see). This is because the Aloe plant has many antioxidants and has a great amount of nutritional qualities.

Not only does Aloe Vera help your skin heal from your day in the sun, but it also heals the dryness of your skin! If you struggle with dry skin and have yet to find a moisturizer that actually works, Lumavera offers products including Aloe Vera (cleansing gel, moisturizer, etc.) that you could use as your new skin care regiment, which will provide your skin to become flake and peel free.

Auxin and Gibberellins are two hormones, contained in Aloe Vera, that aid as an anti-inflammatory and wound healing for your skin. This is beneficial for anyone who struggles with acne, because it will help your skin from scarring.

Last but not least, Aloe Vera also great for healing stretch marks along with acting as an anti-aging treatment! This all-natural ingredient, found in our products, reduce the visibility of stretch marks by healing the wounds of the skin that was once stretched (a.k.a. stretch marks) – pretty simple, right? And if it couldn’t get any better, Aloe leaves contain a load of antioxidants, such as Vitamin C, E, and beta carotene, which helps the skin contain its’ natural firmness by keeping the skin hydrated.

Keep in mind – even though Aloe Vera will help the healing process of a sunburn, sunscreen should still be worn! But now your skin is prepared for any spots you might have missed, along with being included in your daily moisturizer, decreasing the visibility of scarring and inflammation from acne, reducing stretch marks, and naturally tightening your skin (reducing wrinkles! Men and women are both capable of benefiting from Aloe Vera, found in Lumavera’s products!
