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.
Cucumber – The Protector
Cucumber has long been known to help hydrate and rid the body of toxins. With its high concentrations of water, fiber, minerals, antioxidants and vitamin B, this super-food is also a go-to ingredient in gentle skincare. The enzymes and vitamins found in cucumber help to stimulate cell growth and strengthen connective tissues.
