When the weather heats up, your skin can really pay the price, but aloe vera products are just what you need to soothe summer skin. It’s great for a sunburn because it helps take the sting out and offers relief when it gets to be too much. As a kid in Phoenix, we had an aloe vera plant in our backyard and we would break pieces off and rub them on our burned skin. If you don’t have access to one, check out these great aloe vera products that you can use instead. I promise they’ll make you feel better!
1. Fruit of the Earth 100% Aloe Vera Gel
One of the best aloe vera products out there, this gel from Fruit of the Earth is super concentrated so a little goes a long way. At the same time, you know it is mega powerful and will have you feeling better quickly. Simply rub a small amount onto your burned or irritated skin and sit back and relax because you’ll feel that much better.
2. Organix South Theraneem Leaf and Aloe Gel
This product is great for all skin types and is recommended for sunburns or razor burn. The product is gluten-free, vegan and contains no parabens so you know you can count on it to be natural and effective. You’ll also get moisturizing and nourishing benefits from this aloe vera because it’s infused with antioxidants and protects and heals your skin.
3. Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser
If you like to use skincare products that multi-task (I know I do!), this is a great choice for you. Of course, as the name implies, it contains aloe vera for soothing your skin, but the cleanser also helps clean your face without harsh ingredients.This cleanser is dermatologist approved so you know you can count on it for all your needs.
4. Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera
This is another absolutely perfect gel that you can smooth on after sun exposure to keep yourself from being miserable. Its clear color blends in nicely on your skin without being greasy and gross. It has a 99% concentration of aloe vera so it’s very effective, even in small doses. Toss a bottle of this aloe vera gel in your bag so you can get relief no matter where you are.
5. Lovely Skin Aloe Vera
I love the packaging of this product! That’s not the only good thing going for it though. It’s ideal for those times when you get too much sun, but it’s also highly recommended for use after laser treatments. Once you rub this great stuff in, you’ll feel so much better! I guarantee it will quickly become one of your favorite skincare products.
6. Jason Naturals Aloe Vera Gel
Jason has some of the best natural skincare products on the market. This one is no exception. With a 98% concentration of aloe vera, it works fast and it works well. The pump bottle makes it simple to get exactly how much you need to soothe your painful sunburned skin. I think you should keep this one in your medicine cabinet at all times, but especially during the heat of the summer when you’re much more likely to need it.
7. Mill Creek Aloe Vera Gel
This gel promises a 99% percent concentration of aloe vera that is as close to the fresh plant as possible. I know how nice it is to be able to snap off a piece of fresh aloe and rub it directly on your skin, but this is the next best thing.
