Aloe Vera – The Hydrator
Ancient Egyptians referred to aloe vera as the “Plant of Immortality” because it’s known to moisturize, protect against bacteria and repair sun damage. Rich in vitamins C and E, this plant-based ingredient is considered the ultimate skin hydrator. It improves firmness, soothes and reduces pigmentation. Aloe vera also contains plaint hormones gibberellins and auxins, which promote cell regeneration and wound healing. People with all skin types (even combination, oily or acne-prone complexions) benefit from incorporating aloe vera into their skincare routine because of its ability to evenly distribute moisture where it’s needed.
