Aloe Vera

13 Apr

Aloe vera has been used around the world for thousands of years. It is indeed the new trend nowadays, but the virtues of Aloe vera have been proved many times. Many people have been using this for many purposes. 

Many ancient works, including the Bible, refer to the use of aloe. One of the first documented users of aloe vera was Cleopatra, who lived from 68 to 30 B.C. She is said to have used the gel on her skin as protection from the sun, and to have thought the gel helped to keep her skin young-looking. In fact, the Egyptians may have used aloe vera in their embalming of bodies, among other uses.

 

About the year Six B.C., Dioscorides, a Greek physician, discovered aloe vera was effective in treating a wide range of ailments, from kidney problems and constipation, to severe burns of the skin.

 

Today aloe vera continues to be widely used around the world. Studies have shown that aloe vera speeds the healing process, particularly in burns, including those from radiation. It is also used by dermatologists to speed healing after facial dermabrasion, which removes scars from the skins top layers.

For years, I have been looking for a natural product for my skin. I have a very sensitive one, prone to sun burns and pimples. Since January, I have been using a 100% natural product which contains Aloe Vera. Im using the “Forever Living products”.  It is indeed a miracle product since now I can  go in the sun without fearing sun burns, since i apply the Forever Living Sunscreen. Since then, I have become a fan of Aloe vera, and also its make up, which I highly use during my beauty therapy course. 🙂

If you are looking for a good cream for your skin girls and guys, I would highly recommend you FOREVER LIVING PRODUCTS. Since I’ve been buying many of its products, I’m now an official distributor of FOREVER LIVING PRODUCT. Unfortunately they are not available in pharmacies or stores, you should contact  one of its official distributor to have the products. 

So if you want to have further information about the products do contact me or have a look at the forever living official site :  http://www.foreverliving.com
