2020 has been a challenging year. Whilst social distancing has become the ‘new normal’, public health guidelines have demanded a new regime around regular hand washing. Dry skin and contact dermatitis have unfortunately become common, and we’re playing our role in the fight against damaged skin with wipe products that smooth, freshen and tone.
The following statement is highly relevant and explains the impact of constant hand washing on the skin:
“Repeated exposure to water and use of soap, alcohol hand gel, and other detergents can cause dry skin, and what is known as irritant contact dermatitis – a form of eczema. Irritant contact dermatitis can cause the skin to itch, become sore and red, and develop small blisters or painful cracks (fissures). If you already have dry skin either from a skin condition, from medication (such as isotretinoin) or because you are washing your hands more than normal then you may be particularly susceptible to this.” – British Association of Dermatologists (2020)
The British Association of Dermatologists goes on to recommend the use of moisturisers and emollients to combat these symptoms. In this instance, aloe vera can play a significant role.
So – what is aloe vera? Put simply, aloe vera is gel which is extracted from the leaves of aloe plants and has been used for thousands of years for the benefit of our skin. Nowadays, the ingredient is commonly used in the treatment of conditions including:
- Skin Abrasions
- Contact Dermatitis
Indeed, the health benefits of aloe vera are widely understood. You can learn more about the specific benefits of aloe vera by consulting this useful resource from Healthline.
Why We Love Aloe Vera
Seen in many homes as a houseplant, aloe vera is frequently described as a horticultural miracle. This plant has been used for millennia as a medicinal herb and cooling agent, nourishing the body from the inside. In most cases, aloe vera is used to enhance skin – especially around the face and hands.
- Natural moisturiser: Aloe vera’s natural properties as a moisturiser are well known, unclogging pores and softening the skin.
- Anti-aging properties: We’ve all seen products labelled as ‘anti-aging’. Aloe vera means it. This ingredient is packed with properties like vitamin C and vitamin E to combat wrinkles.
- Antibacterial properties: Aloe vera is packed with antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, including an antiseptic to treat pimples out damaging the skin.
