1. To take care of your skin!
Aloe vera contains a large amount of lignin, a substance that helps all the amino acids and vitamins of this plant to penetrate the layers of the skin. In this way, the hydration that brings reaches the deepest of our dermis, and its effects are not only committed to the first skin layer. Rubbing the aloe’s viscous liquid will help us improve the cracked areas of our heels, a part of our body that always tends to dry quickly. The elbows or knees are also areas that are often soon dehydrated, so you should not hesitate to benefit from the natural properties of this natural remedy.
Since aloe vera stimulates the rapid creation of collagen, something that can help us to delay the appearance of the dreaded wrinkles in our face. All this because this plant produces fibroblastic fibers in the skin much faster than our body generates them naturally.
