How does aloe vera help prevent or reverse ageing effects on the skin?
Well firstly there is no miracle ingredient that can stop or reverse the effects of ageing on the skin. But we sure can do our best to "preserve" our skin and stop it form drying out and wrinkling like a fallen autumn leaf.
At save our skin we have carefully selected Australian native Aloe Vera in our face range for him and her as it plays a major role in the skin preservation process.
So what's the key to skin preservation (aka anti-ageing)?
The answer is collagen production!
Aloe vera has been shown to increase collagen production in the skin, which helps with wrinkle reduction and a more youthful looking, radiant skin.
Collagen is the most prolific protein in our bodies, and is found in skin, bones, muscles, and organs - just about everywhere in the body. It provides skin with elasticity and also replaces dead skin cells.
As we get older, our bodies tend to produce less and less collagen, which is why the elderly have sagging and wrinkled skin. That’s where aloe vera gel can help, because it stimulates collagen production in the skin. The additional collagen produced by using aloe vera gel can significantly improve your skin’s elasticity and composure.
In fact, aloe vera helps to rebuild the collagen in skin more quickly and can even prevent the body’s existing collagen from breaking down because of aloe vera’s fast regeneration of the fibroblast cells.
For centuries aloe vera has been used as an anti-ageing treatment, and now scientific research is showing the chemical basis behind how it works. In addition to boosting collagen production, aloe vera gel also hydrates the skin and boosts the skin’s elasticity, reducing the amount of fine lines and wrinkles.
