With the sun being especially harsh during the summer months, the skin requires a multitude of products that can protect it from harmful rays. While there are various ingredients that promise to do the job, it is “aloe vera” — nature’s wonder ingredient — that can come to your rescue.

“Bringing with it a range of skincare properties since the ancient Egyptians who termed it as the ‘plant of immortality’, aloe vera, has surely become the most sought-after skincare ingredient,” says Koushik Sreedhar, NIVEA India’s research and development expert.

Does aloe vera help heal a sunburn?

There’s a fair amount of research to show that the clear gel that fills the thick leaves of an aloe vera plant can be used to help with the healing process of a sunburn.

A few older peer-reviewed studies have shown that aloe vera is beneficial in healing first- to second-degree burns, which include mild to moderate sunburns.

In a more recent, a compound in aloe called aloin was found to be responsible for the plant’s anti-inflammatory benefits. Aloe vera can also help to moisturize the skin and prevent the peeling that sometimes happens with sunburns.

How to use aloe vera for sunburns

To treat a sunburn, spread a layer of pure gel extracted from the inside of an aloe vera leaf over the burnt skin. You can grow your own aloe vera plants at home, or you can buy aloe vera extracts in a store or online.

Aloe vera is best used when it’s in 100 percent aloe vera gel form and when it’s kept chilled. If you have a sunburn, apply aloe vera a few times a day to the sunburnt area. If you have a severe burn, also known as sun poisoning, see a doctor before applying aloe.

You should not attempt to treat third- and fourth-degree burns or severe sunburns with aloe vera at home. These burns are considered a medical emergency and should be treated in a hospital.

 

 

Aloe vera can be used in a few different ways:

Raw from the plant

If you have access to an aloe vera plant, break off a chunk of it. You’ll see a gel emerging from the inside. Apply the gel directly to the skin for relief from a minor sunburn.

The primary constituent of the gel in the leaves is water

Gel

If you can’t get your hands on a plant, look for a 100 percent aloe vera gel sold online in Aloe Vera Australia. Apply a layer of the gel directly to the burn.
