Aloe vera for skin diseases

Gel-Aloe-Vera-Filet

The power of aloe vera

Aloe vera has been used as a healing and beauty plant for thousands of years and is still regarded today as an all-rounder in naturopathy when it comes to skin problems. It provides and stores moisture, activates cell renewal, has an anti-inflammatory, cooling and soothing effect and promotes wound healing. This versatility makes it an ideal active ingredient for alleviating skin problems. The valuable ingredients from the inside of fresh Aloe Vera leaves bind the active ingredient saturated moisture and make it available when required.

Santaverde manufactures only cosmetic products and no medical preparations. It is difficult to make a general product recommendation for skin diseases. The recommendations in the following are based on the experience of our cosmeticians and customers with skin diseases as well as scientific findings on individual active ingredients. Santaverde beauticians offer personal advice on individual skin needs.

Acne

Acne is primarily a disease of the sebaceous follicle. The sebaceous glands (comedones), which provide an ideal breeding ground for the reproduction of bacteria, clog up. This leads to inflammatory reactions of the surrounding tissue and the visible reddening of the skin. The comedones develop into papules, pustules or even knots. Not every acne shows the same skin appearance and every acne has different "phases". The monthly cycle, stress and above all the nutrition have influence on the skin, from impure skin to the severe form of acne.

Which care is suitable for acne?

Care against acne should be effective against impurities and their recurrence. Antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and sebum-regulating agents are therefore ideal. In addition, the care should be mild, the skin should not dry out or irritate and the stressed skin should be soothed and brought back into balance. Natural skin care made from fresh aloe vera plant juice is one of the most effective and at the same time most natural ways to care for skin prone to impurities and inflammation. Especially the product line pure with anti-inflammatory extract from the pansy blossom and sebum-regulating salicylic acid is ideal for the care of impure skin. However, a special product consultation completely adapted to your skin type is not possible from a distance.

Particularly important is the deep and gentle cleaning with the oil-free aloe vera cleansing gel. Then use the pure clarifying toner with thyme hydrolate. It has an antibacterial effect, clarifies and prevents impurities. For the following care we recommend the pure mattifying fluid, which mattifies the skin with the help of soothing rose hip seed oil and counteracts impurities. It is gently massaged into the still toner-moist skin. As a supplementary special care, the light pure refining serum can be applied before the fluid - it refines and soothes redness through evening primrose oil.

Impure skin is not always accompanied by oily skin. Maybe you have to fight with dry skin or dry skin areas or your skin needs more care e.g. in winter. The slightly milder "fragrance-free" variants of medium aloe vera cream or  rich aloe vera cream are particularly suitable as additional care. As a special care for the sensitive eye area, the fragrance free aloe vera eye cream can also be used.

Couperose

Couperosis is a hereditary vasodilatation that mainly affects the face. It usually occurs from the age of 30 if a constitutional weakness of the connective tissue is present. In the initial stage only a temporary redness develops, especially on the nose and cheeks, which can become permanent later. The skin is usually sensitive and tends to dryness. Sometimes the skin feels hot and burns. Couperosis can later turn into rosacea.

Which care is suitable for couperose?

A soothing care which does not additionally stimulate the blood circulation of the skin is particularly important. In addition, the care should be mild and contain no fragrances at best. Even if the skin often tends to dryness with couperose, highly oily creams should be avoided. Since we offer very light products with a higher proportion of hydrophilic substances and fewer oils (oil-in-water emulsion), our creams generally tolerate this skin type very well and benefit from the soothing, cooling and cell-renewing properties of aloe vera.

We recommend the aloe vera cleansing milk for cleansing. For toning you can use the aloe vera toner sensitive with soothing and strengthening rose hydrolate. Both pure mattifying fluid with soothing rose hip seed oil and light aloe vera cream without fragrance are suitable as basic care. Both products are very light and intensely moisturizing. As special care, applied before the fluid, we recommend the pure refining serum as well as our aloe vera hydrating gel without scent. Soothing active ingredients such as aloe vera and evening primrose have a caring and reddening effect. For the sensitive eye area fragrance free aloe vera eye cream is recommended.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory skin disease of the face, usually beginning between the ages of 30 and 40 years, with a feeling of heat and spot-like, sometimes scaly redness as well as inflammatory papules and pustules. The nose, chin and forehead are particularly affected. The skin of rosacea patients is sensitive and irritated.

It is a relatively frequent inflammation of the facial skin with a chronic development in stages. The actual cause of Rosacea is not known, however diet plays an important part as well as the correct skincare.

Which care is suitable for rosacea?

The fact that inflammatory processes occur in rosacea makes anti-inflammatory and calming agents important, which should not have an astringent effect. The skin is very sensitive and reacts irritated to many ingredients. Especially irritant and reddening soothing agents have a positive effect on the skin. In addition, the acid mantle should be stabilized. Tallow-regulating active ingredients are ideal for regulating excess sebum. Intensive hydration of the skin is also important to minimize dandruff formation. Since we offer very light products with a higher proportion of hydrophilic substances and fewer oils (oil-in-water emulsion), our creams generally tolerate this skin type very well and benefit from the soothing, cooling and cell-renewing properties of aloe vera. However, we recommend that you use our "fragrance-free" products if possible so as not to irritate the skin unnecessarily.

For gentle cleansing you can use our mild aloe vera cleansing milk. To minimize inflammation and sebum production, the pure clarifying toner with salicylic acid from willow bark is very suitable. We recommend both the light and moisturizing pure mattifying fluid and light aloe vera cream without scent which you massage into the still toner-moist skin. Especially in a time when the skin shows many inflammations, we recommend the pure refining serum as well as our aloe vera hydrating  gel without scent - both with soothing evening primrose oil. The fragrance free eye cream is ideal for the sensitive eye area.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease in which skin cells are transported to the surface much faster because the immune system attacks the skin cells. On the outside, it mainly appears through red, inflamed skin areas covered with silvery scales. These skin areas are usually sharply defined and inflammatory reddened. Psoriasis is often accompanied by itching. The symptoms can occur all over the body, as well as on the scalp. In the face, the hairline is particularly affected.

Which care is suitable for psoriasis?

Even if the disease cannot be cured with care products, symptoms such as itching and inflammation can be alleviated and dandruff detachment supported. As the skin is very dry in psoriasis, it needs rich care ingredients that strengthen the skin's protective barrier. In order not to irritate the skin unnecessarily, fragrances are not recommended for this skin disease either. Aloe vera with its itch-relieving and anti-inflammatory properties is ideal for psoriasis. Salicylic acid - which is contained in all Santaverde pure products - is also a well-known agent in psoriasis treatment to remove dandruff and inhibit inflammation.

Choose the aloe vera cleansing milk to cleanse the psoriasis skin, as it has a moisturising effect, does not dry out the skin and retains its hydro-lipid coat. Then use the pure clarifying toner with anti-inflammatory thyme hydrolate. Since the dry skin needs a rich care, the rich, restorative rich aloe vera cream without fragrance with soothing evening primrose and moisture-binding argan oil is suitable for this. As special care you can use the pure refining serum or the aloe vera hydrating gel without scent, both with itch-relieving evening primrose oil. For the sensitive eye area - as with any problem skin - the fragrance free eye cream is the right choice.

As the mildest, purest aloe vera product, pure aloe vera gel can also be applied in places to irritated, itchy areas of the face and is of course particularly suitable for affected areas of the body. Customers also report that our body lotions are well-tolerated body care products. ome customers suffering from psoriasis can only tolerate the fresh aloe vera plant leaf or alternatively the juice aloepur, the 100% pure drinking juice.

Neurodermatitis

Neurodermatitis, also known as atopic eczema, is a chronic skin inflammation that occurs in phases. The causes lie in a disturbance of the immune system. The natural protective barrier is disturbed, the skin lacks lipids, which means it loses moisture and can penetrate allergenic and other toxic or irritating substances more easily. Typical skin reactions are in part very strong itching, feeling of tension and inflammation.

Which care is suitable for neurodermatitis?

Since the protective barrier of the skin is disturbed in neurodermatitis, active agents that strengthen or rebuild this natural barrier layer are particularly useful. The fat and moisture balance should be brought back into a healthy balance. Since neurodermatitis is accompanied by severe itching, itch-relieving active ingredients are also ideal. As the skin is very susceptible to allergens, a low-scented care should be used. Aloe vera juice contained in all Santaverde products helps against itching. Active ingredients such as pansy blossom extract contained in the pure products are suitable for an anti-inflammatory effect. Aloe vera, hyaluron and soothing active ingredients from rose, rose hip, almond or evening primrose are ideal for building up the fat and moisture balance. We often hear from our customers that they are very successful in using the following products for neurodermatitis:

The aloe vera cleansing milk has a moisturising effect and preserves the skin's hydro-lipid layer. Then sprayed on, the aloe vera toner sensitive has a calming and balancing effect due to the rose blossom hydrolate it contains. The pure refining serum with pansy blossom extract and evening primrose oil is ideal as special care. Depending on your skin care needs and sensations, use medium aloe vera cream without fragrance with protective avodaco and grape seed oil or the rich, restorative rich aloe vera cream without fragrance with soothing evening primrose and moisture-binding argan oil. For the sensitive eye area aloe vera eye cream without fragrance is the right choice.

As the mildest, purest aloe vera product, pure aloe vera gel can also be applied in places to irritated areas of the face and is very well suited for affected areas of the body. Customers also report on our body lotions as the perfect body care product.
