Hi, lovelies! Today’s post will be dedicated to a very special Aloe plant that is frequently used for medical and cosmetic purposes, namely Aloe vera. Wherever you go nowadays you will always find at least one product containing aloe vera extract. After all, it’s supposed to have a lot of benefits including that it accelerates the healing of burns, may improve skin and help prevent wrinkles, lowers blood sugar levels in diabetics, and has antioxidant and antibacterial properties. At least that’s what the cosmetic industry says, but in reality Aloe vera is much more complicated than that.
