The antioxidants can also help to neutralize carcinogenic free radicals caused by prolonged sun exposure too!

2. It soothes and reduces visible effects of inflammation on the skin!

Other than helping to prevent internal inflammation under the skin, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice can also soothe and reduce the visible effects of inflammation on the skin! Such symptoms include red, swollen and sensitive skin, as well as various skin infections such as dermatitis and eczema. Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice aids in the recovery process by forming a protective barrier on the affected areas, delivering deep hydration to support the skin’s organic and natural healing capabilities.

3. It is a gentle, organic and natural anti-aging solution!

With Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, you can face aging skin concerns with confidence! Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice is a wonderful vegan, organic and natural humectant that helps attract water in the surrounding air to the surface of the skin. Not only does it help with plumping up fine lines with a shot of hydration, it also delivers a cocktail of organic and natural antioxidants — beta carotene, vitamin C, E and more — to naturally improve skin firmness!

4. It can help banish summer acne!

If you’re wondering why you break out more in the summer, you’re not alone. For many women, the sweltering heat opens the pores and accelerates the accumulation of acne-causing debris and bacteria. Fortunately, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juicecontains two plant hormones — auxin and gibberellins — that work in synergy to assist cell rejuvenation and turnover. In particular, the latter is a natural plant growth hormone that stimulates the growth of new cells for quicker healing time with minimal scarring.
