You’ve probably heard of aloe vera. It grows easily in tropical climates and you can keep a small potted one on your kitchen window ledge. It’s said to have healing powers, and we put it in our LMB Ageless Skincare’s Essential Vitamin Moisture Creme. But what can it really do? Aloe is a powerful moisturizer that softens skin without clogging pores. Aloe helps wounds (like small cuts and burns) heal more quickly and can even dull the pain from minor burns. In fact, studies have shown that first and second degree burns treated with aloe vera heal more than a week sooner than burns not treated with aloe. It treats sunburn.
