Time-Tested Skin Care With Aloe VeraTime-Tested Skin Care With Aloe Vera

Our skin is an important organ of the body - in fact it is the largest. It shields the entire body from external factors such as the sun, weather and environmental toxins. So it deserves the best protection and maintenance it can get.

Every day, we subject our skin to a wide host of irritants such as harsh, chemical-laden soaps and cleaning formulations. We liberally spray the body with moisture-depleting perfumes or colognes and subject ourselves to the heat of the sun, the bitter cold, and the moisture-depleting winds. The skin acts as our body's defender against nature's aggressors - airborne viruses and bacteria, environmental toxins and poisons that could seriously affect it over time. That is why it is quite important to give skin the best defence there is.

Aloe vera gel is probably the longest known natural and herbal ingredient used for skin care and protection. It has long been used to relieve radiation burns,sunburn and promote the healing of wounds. It has also been found to be highly effective in moisturising and softening the various layers of the skin.

Aloe vera gel comprises more than 75 nutrients and 200 active compounds that include 20 minerals, 18 amino acids, 12 vitamins plus enzymes, polysaccharides and antibiotic agents. It definitely has the credentials for a major role in skin care evolution, and researchers have described it as "a pharmacy within a plant".

Aloe vera is widely recognised for the variety of ways in which it can relieve common skin irritations. Aside from burns and sunburn, aloe provides relief to itching, sores, psoriasis, eczema, acne and pimples, insect bites, minor wounds and fungal infections. Natural aloe gently yet deeply exfoliates and gets rid of dead surface cells to bring back a radiant glow to the skin.On the aesthetic side, aloe vera gel has been found to keep the skin in supple condition as it prevents wrinkles and the other signs of ageing. Aloe has also been observed to decrease pigmentation and prevent extreme conditions of oiliness or hydration deficiencies.

With so many healthful and curative ingredients in it, it is not surprising that aloe has become a popular and effective ingredient in natural skin care. Cosmetic makers and skin product manufacturers have added aloe vera to their skin care products ingredients for more than 30 years now. Trusted for centuries to improve skin conditions and regenerate cells for a radiant glow, Cleopatra was even one of its avid users. So it comes as no surprise that after all the years, it remains one of the most effective and popular skin care product components.

More aloe vera benefits will undoubtedly be uncovered by science as time goes on. In the meantime, you can enjoy the wide range of aloe vera skin health benefits today with some of the best quality products available.

The Aloe Vera Fleur de Jouvence Skincare Collection, brings you the full effects of natural aloe with its particularly restorative benefits minimising fine lines and wrinkles. Aloe Vera and other exceptional moisturisers are blended with the unique cellular substances of hydrolysed elastin and collagen for enhanced protection and nourishment to the skin. This Skincare Collection includes an exfoliating cleanser and rehydrating toner, a firming foundation lotion, recovering night crème, and a unique non-surgical facelift mask comprising a facial contour mask powder and pure aloe activator that re mixed fresh for each use.

Another alternative is a new luxury range - The Sonya Skin Care Collection. This regime blends the power of aloe and other superior moisturisers with fruit extracts and white tea extract, the new rage in anti-ageing. Indulge in these five products for a huge treat to your skin. The Sonya Skin Care Collection includes a cleanser, deep cleansing exfoliator, toner, nourishing serum and balancing cream.

After using one of these skin care programmes, you may also want to consider the Sonya Colour Cosmetics Collection. This cosmetics range is particularly good for sensitive skins and contains Aloe Vera which is rare in cosmetics, marine extracts, antioxidants, chamomile and avocado oil. It is long lasting due to being extremely finely ground and uses rare colouring pigments for a truly lovely range of colours.

The skin is made up of three layers: the subcutaneous, the epidermis and the dermis. The dermis is the deepest layer that contains fibroblast cells that are responsible for skin regeneration. New cells are constantly manufactured to replace the dead ones on the surface.

It takes approximately 21 to 28 days for fibroblasts to regenerate new cells and reach the skin surface where results can be visible. So we recommend using a new skin care regime for a minimum of 30 days to start experiencing the benefits. A full 60 day use will bring better results and the best benefits.
