Aloe Vera Gel
Created from the gel-like interiors of the aloe plant, aloe vera gel is one of the most popular topical remedies for skin ailments like burns, cuts, and inflammation.
Aloe vera gel is naturally soothing and anti-inflammatory and can provide moisturizing effects that may promote skin health. This gel also has antimicrobial benefits that may encourage wound healing and protect skin from infections.
It is possible to press the interior of an aloe leaf onto your skin and receive the same effect as using a pre-made gel. However, it is important to note that using aloe vera topically may cause itching or hives in some individuals. Discontinue use if you notice these occurring.
