Aloe Vera, In addition to repairing and healing, Aloe also works as a detoxifying agent under the skin, which doubles the healing of rosacea symptoms. Aloe is a natural hydrator which benefits those with rosacea since those with rosacea often have increased skin-sensitivity and dryness. Applying aloe topically increases the moisture and rejuvenates the skin while acting as an anti-inflammatory and reducing redness and irritation.
Aloe Vera contains at least 6 antiseptic agents which can provide a broad antimicrobial cover for the skin. Therefore, the herb can kill off the bacteria and fungi which cause or worsen rosacea symptoms.
Aloe Vera calms and heals skin, makes the skin smooth and glowing and destroys bacteria. It has the unique ability to stimulate cell renewal. Fibroblast cells are found in the dermis of the skin and are responsible for fabricating collagen, the skin's support protein. During sun exposure and through normal aging processes, fibroblasts slow their collagen production. As aging continues, the quality of collagen is lessened and wrinkling deepens. Aloe improves fibroblast cell integrity; also quickening the making of collagen. In studies, it was found to increase production of human fibroblast cells six to eight times faster than normal cell reproduction. It is an excellent skin moisturizer that keeps the skin flexible by giving oxygen to the cells which in turn increases the strength and synthesis of skin tissue. It improves the ability of the skin to hydrate itself, is helpful in removing dead skin cells and has the ability for effective penetration and transportation of healthy substances through the skin. Aloe prevents aging of the skin, nourishes the skin and tissues with vitamins E and C, lightens dark spots on the face and reduces the intensity of pigmentation while soothing your skin.
