Summertime is on the doorstep and it won't be long before you feel like you are melting. Your skin is sticking to the furniture and the car seats, and you can't shed anymore clothes. You would go swimming, but you don't have a swimming pool. No A/C? No problem. Aloe is a summer staple, usually associated with soothing and nourishing skin after sun exposure and to help re-hydrate your skin. But did you know that aloe can also help you stay cool and hydrated? Below we discuss some easy ways to keep cool this summer with everything from aloe water to pure aloe gel.
ALOE GEL MASSAGE
A massage containing Pure Aloe Gel creates a wonderful cooling sensation. Perfect after that long day at the beach, the aloe will cool and calm skin after extended time in the sun. When applied to the lower legs and feet, the aloe can bring the body's temperature down a few degrees. Take the frosty factor up a notch by stashing the aloe gel in the fridge or using Pure Aloe Gel with Tea Tree Oil.
One sure way to keep cool is to stay hydrated. There is no better way to hydrate than drinking water containing pure aloe leaf. Stay cool, quench your thirst and reap the health benefits of aloe all at the same time. ALODERMA's affiliated company, AloeVita, offers this delicious and healthy treat in five refreshing flavors: Green Grape, Zero Calorie Green Grape, Mango, Pomegranate, and Wild Berry.
ALOE FLAVORED ICE CUBES
Spruce up your ice water with aloe flavored cubes. Simply add some aloe juice and fresh mint leaf (and crushed berries if you so desire) into your ice tray, and freeze for 30-60 minutes. The aloe and mint combo is easy on the eyes and makes for a healthier water, as the aloe and mint can help support digestion and the mint is a solid source of Vitamin C. We highly recommend Organic Aloe Vera Juice from our sister company, AloeCure. It is produced within 12 Hours of Harvest from our owned and operated ECOCERT certified organic farms the same way that ALODERMA is, ensuring the freshest Aloe Vera juice possible
ALOE VERA FACE MASK
Aloe vera acts as a supreme moisturizer and exfoliator for your skin. To keep your face and neck feeling cool and hydrated this summer, try making an aloe vera face mask. You will need shea butter, olive oil and aloe vera gel (ALODERMA's Pure Aloe Gel would work perfectly). Combine all the ingredients well until a paste is produced. Apply it to your face and neck for 15-20 minutes, then rinse with cool water. An Aloe mask will restore the moisture in your skin and act as a refreshing hydrator. For an even easier path, we recommend our line of ALODERMA facial masksALODERMA facial masks, which offer options for just about every skin type.
ALOE VERA PLANT
Not only handy to have around to treat in a bind when you don't have packaged aloe vera gel on hand, an aloe vera plant will actually help keep the temperature cool in your home. Aloe vera brings down ambient temperatures making for good protection against high heats.
Enjoy the summer heat and don't forget to include ALODERMA Aloe Vera skin care in your summer cooling routine.
