If you are looking for a holistic solution for sunburns this summers, try using aloe vera. You can purchase aloe vera gel in a bottle from your local natural foods market or pharmacy. It originally comes from a leaf that grows on a cactus-like plant in warm climates. I recommend buying the most natural or organic product you can find. It is very soothing when you apply it to any sunburn areas on the body. Did you know the skin is the largest organ in the body? Aloe vera relieves the heat on the skin, and also leaves your skin smooth and shiny. Plus, you are not using products that contain any chemicals, which can have harmful effects on the body.
Aloe Vera is also has some great cosmetic benefits as well!
Aloe Vera Regenerates new cells, clears up pigmentation problems on skin, prevents wrinkles (with consistent use) prevents dandruff and even removes eye wrinkles! Yep, that's right, the same plant in so many of our cactus gardens is the same one that acts as a magic trick to eye wrinkles!
You can even eat it! Aloe vera is an amazing superfood, packed with vitamins and minerals that reduce inflammation, heal the skin, combat and prevent diseases, and support a healthy immune system.
Aloe vera is amazing! Use it to boost your summer smoothies, AND lather your body with it to cool down after a long day at the beach!
