If there’s a wonder jelly, then there’s a miracle goop. Aloe vera extract offers health benefits when ingested, but even as a topical treatment alone, it also boasts numerous uses. For this reason, skincare brands are always finding ways to incorporate the remarkable plant’s gel into their formulation.
 
When it comes to this matter, we say go for a lotion that combines the miraculous soothing attributes of aloe vera and the wonderful healing properties of petroleum jelly. This combination is easily absorbed by the skin for a non-greasy feel. A product with these ingredients can keep skin nourished and refreshed for up to three weeks.
Curious to know more about what makes aloe vera so special? Here’s a list of just some of the things it can do for your skin:
 
It moisturizes your skin
Aloe vera hydrates your skin without clogging up your pores, so it’s great for people with oily skin. You can even use it to moisturize your face before putting on makeup to avoid dryness. Goodbye, scaly, flaky face; hello, amazingly soft and smooth skin!

It soothes minor cuts and burns
For first degree burns that manifest as redness without blistering or open wounds, aloe vera has become a part of conventional first aid treatment. Sunburns fall under this category, so in case you get baked by the sun on a beach trip or a hike, you know where to look for relief.
Aloe vera also possesses antibacterial properties. For small cuts and nicks from shaving, smearing some aloe helps keep the wound from getting infected and speed up healing. Better yet, just slick it onto your skin as a shaving cream or gel substitute. The slippery consistency can help you get the best and closest shave while moisturizing your skin and keeping germs at bay to boot.
 
It helps fight off acne
Redness, swelling, and bacterial infestation are characteristics of one of the most common skin problems—pimples. Aloe vera’s anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial abilities can deal with those.
 
It keeps your skin healthy and youthful-looking
Time plays such cruel tricks on our skin. As we age, our skin starts to lose elasticity, causing wrinkles and stretch marks to develop and show up more easily. You can fend off these signs of aging and maintain a smooth, firm, and supple skin with the help of aloe vera.
Aloe extract has been proven to increase collagen production (the protein that promotes skin strength and elasticity) and is also a great source of beta-carotene and Vitamins C and E—antioxidants that are crucial to preserving the health and vitality of your skin.
