Aloe Vera For Protecting Your Skin
Pain relief the natural way isn't just about helping the inside of your body, but the outside as well. The skin
is the largest organ of the body and it is often the most neglected. Every day we do things to our skin that
have it crying out for relief.
Skin is subjected to the elements in the form of rain, snow, wind and the sweltering sun and many chemicals are
used on the skin from cosmetic products to harsh soaps.
We use razors, depilatories and hot wax on our skin and we use everything from powders to body sprays to cologne
on our skin. Any of these things can have our skin calling out for relief!
Doing all of the above things to the skin can open us up to a wide assortment of different skin problems
developing such as;
- chapping and/or chafing,
- dryness of the skin,
- flaking and scaling,
- and allergic reactions (which often Includes redness, swelling Itching and little bumps on the skin).
Many sufferers will reach for antibiotic creams, or cortisone creams, to help their skin heal, when
the truth is you may be harming your skin even worse by applying these substances. Cortisone cream as well as
many antibiotic ointments and creams contain strong steroids, which can many times thin the skin, which
can leave it vulnerable to more Irritation and Infections.

The skin acts as a shield, or protective barrier from invaders that could possibly do it harm. These invaders
can include poisons and toxins in the environment, bacteria and airborne viruses. The skin is able to block out all
negative substances, however over time this takes a toll on the skin and can wear it down.
The skin then becomes saggy, and sometimes blotchy as it becomes dry, red and itchy. This means that your
face and body pay a terrible price for all the abuse they endure. The immune system does what it can, but it
does get to a point when it is unable to keep up with what is happening to it, and this makes the skin
more vulnerable to infections, bacteria, and viruses.
One of the skin's best defenses is Aloe Vera, which comes from the Aloe Vera plant. Aloe Vera was used long
ago by Cleopatra to give her skin a natural glow, as well as to help prevent many skin conditions from
developing. Aloe Vera was once considered a miracle plant by the ancient Greek physicians, as the plant has many
benefits that do the skin a lot of good.
Aloe Vera also provides a natural barrier to the elements, and keeps out smoke, pollution and the harmful rays
of the sun, along with a variety of dangerous toxins. Aloe Vera will also help to minimize scarring, along with
helping treat cuts, bruises, and burns to heal as quickly as possible, and to destroy any bacteria that may
attempt to enter into any open cuts, and sores on the skin. Aloe Vera also helps to relieve
swelling, redness and inflammation, along with soothing the burning ache of itchy skin.
