Aloe vera juice has various vitamins, minerals and polysaccharides that soothe, protect and hydrate our skin and hair. Aloe vera’s uses and benefits are so many yet it is often overlooked over for more trendy ingredients. But this versatile ingredient can be a saviour from the various skin and scalp ailments that summers tend to bring with it.

4 Reasons Aloe Vera Is A Summer Skincare Essential

It Has a Soothing Effect on Skin : Aloe Vera juice is almost 96% water and immediately makes your skin feel cool and calm. After spending a day outside under the hot sun, an aloe vera face pack can help refresh and soothe your skin almost instantly. 
It can also help calm heat rashes and breakouts with its wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties
It's Provides Relief From Sunburn : Sunburnt skin is a common skin concern during summer when you are exposed to direct sunlight for several hours at stretch. It can lead to redness, sensitivity and even blisters. 
Aloe vera has some amazing anti-inflammatory and healing properties that help your skin recover from a sunburn. So a tub of aloe vera gel is a must-have on a beach vacation to take care of sun-damaged skin.
It Soothes Itchy Scalp : Due to excessive sweating during summers, dust and dead skin cells tend to build up leading to an itchy scalp. And the easiest way to find instant relief from it is by using an aloe vera hair mask for your scalp. Its soothing, cooling nature will reduce itching and even keep your hair hydrated.
It Hydrates Your Skin : Even during harsh summers, your skin needs a moisturiser to stay hydrated and supple. And aloe vera gel is the perfect lightweight and nourishing moisturiser for all skin types.
Whether you have oily, dry, dehydrated or sensitive skin, aloe vera gel will keep your skin well hydrated and even calm pimples and boils with its soothing nature. 
It also offers some protection from UV rays since it has antioxidants like vitamin C and E making it an essential skincare item for the summers.
