Hot Ingredient: Aloe Vera

Published on by

The use of aloe vera dates back to the ancient Egyptians.  They called the plant the “plant of immortality”.  It was presented to dead pharaohs as burial gifts. Stone carvings still exist depicting its uses. The ancient Egyptians utilized the Aloe plant to heal infections, burns, and to clear up the existence of parasites on the body.  Since those times, the use of aloe vera has expanded.  We know it’s a leading therapy for sunburns; however, the additional uses of this magnificent plant may astonish you.  Aloe vera is a cactus plant that belongs to the Liliaceae family. It grows in dry climates such as those found in parts of Africa and India and has been used medicinally for centuries. The plant can grow anywhere from several inches in height to several feet, depending on its growing environment.  Ancient Greeks, Spaniards, and Arabs applied aloe to the body to minimize the occurrence of perspiration and body odor. During the sixteenth century, aloe made its way to the West Indies and shortly thereafter arrived in the Caribbean and America. During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, American herbalists relied heavily on Aloe Vera for many of their treatments.

Aloe leaves secrete, a clear gel that when broken off from the rest of the plant that can be applied topically to heal wounds and soothe skin.  The leaves of this plant contain a high percentage of water, essential oil, amino acids, minerals, vitamin C, vitamin E, zinc, essential fatty acids, and glycoproteins. Aloe Vera has been credited with the following capabilities: antibacterial (minimizing the presence of bacteria), antimicrobial (minimizing microbes), antifungal (minimizing the existence of fungus), anthelmintic (reduction in number of parasites and worms), anti-inflammatory (easing of swelling), antiviral (destruction of viruses), vulnerary (wound healing), purgative (performance as an aggressive laxative), and emollient (acts to moisturize and soothe).

Various studies have been conducted to examine the benefits of the aloe vera plant and it was found that aloe vera does in fact have several properties that are effective in treating a variety of skin conditions, from flaky or dry skin, cosmetic ailments, and hair and scalp problems.   Aloe vera has been credited with the ability to promote cell renewal as it soothes the skin. Taken orally, it is used to cleanse and support the digestive system, infuse energy, and support the immune system. Aloe vera juice is taken internally to provide relief from common digestive issues such as irritable bowel syndrome and heartburn. It is also taken orally to treat conditions such as osteoarthritis, epilepsy, asthma, and diabetes. Topical applications revolve primarily around the treatment of sunburn, burns obtained from sources other than the sun, and psoriasis.

As an antibacterial substance, it offers relief from the redness associated with acne while helping to heal breakouts. Enhancing the skin’s natural levels of moisture, aloe vera is particularly helpful to use on sensitive or dry skin. Its moisturizing capabilities have led to its use in anti-dandruff shampoos. A rich source of many vitamins including A, B, and C, it is used to brighten skin tone and minimize minor pigmentation issues.  We hope you add aloe vera to your list of “must try” ingredients!

New Years Resolution: Look Younger with Micro-Current Tools

Published on by

With New Years Eve quickly approaching many of us have beauty resolutions at the top of our list. Look years younger without going under the knife! Micro-current devices are a great option for anyone looking to firm and tone their skin. This technology is designed to soften wrinkles and rejuvenate skin, including skin damaged by sunburn, acne, stretch marks, cellulite and scarring. When used on the face, the treatments have become known as a “non-surgical facelift.” Micro-current mimics the body’s own bio-electric current and works by passing low frequency, direct current through muscle tissue to stimulate the muscle fibers. At home micro-current tools are a very effective option and growing in popularity.

Our most popular micro-current device NuFace Trinity delivers unparalleled professional results in an easy to use at-home system. The NuFace Trinity is newly updated with an ergonomic design to deliver an amazing user experience. With the addition of interchangeable Infrared light treatment heads for added functionality, the NuFace Trinity makes it easy to achieve results in as little as 5 minutes a day.

Another customer favorite is the WrinkleMD Eye HA Deep Infusion System. This groundbreaking tool uses a Hyaluronic filler system with  gentle micro-current to deliver Hyaluronic Acid — the wrinkle-filler injected by dermatologists — and peptides by infusing them into the layers of your skin, deeper than creams or serums can reach. Each 40-minute treatment targets wrinkles with an intensive boost of Hyaluronic Acid. Visible results are immediate and continue to improve with as little as one treatment per week. All you will feel is a gentle, euphoric tingle and all you see is beautiful, younger-looking skin!
