Just when I think I’ve tried all of the oil-combatting, acne-fighting, skin-perfecting key ingredients out there, I find something new. And let me tell you guys: this is a GOOD one.
Salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, sulfur, zinc, tea tree oil – I’ve been there, tried that! I’ve found some good products and I’ve found some throw-directly-in-the-trash products. But you know me, I’m always on the hunt for something new to try!
If you follow along on Instagram, you know I have started to make a diligent effort in creating a cleaner beauty routine. No, I have not thrown away every product with a paraben in it. Just like everything else in my life, I absolutely believe in balance. So, where I can, I am striving to incorporate cleaner products that are still effective and affordable.
So, when Lexli reached out to me asking if I wanted to try their line of natural, aloe-based products, I was all in! After testing them out for a month, I fell in love and decided to write a post to share the impact aloe can make on your skin, especially if you are looking for a solution to oily, acne-prone skin.
Benefits of Aloe for Your Skin
Aloe reduces inflammation.
Aloe is a wonderful anti-inflammatory skincare solution. Inflammation affects nearly every skin type, from dry skin to acne-prone. I found that using Lexli helped to calm breakouts and reduce redness which was such a huge benefit for me!
Aloe encourages healing.
A skin-saving natural healer, aloe is perfect for soothing skin post-breakout. Anyone who has ever had a stubborn blemish knows the pain of not only getting rid of it, but healing the spot – and aloe is perfect for speeding up the process.
Aloe fights bacteria.
Stubborn flare-ups derive from bacteria, so aloe is perfect for fighting it off to both treat and prevent acne.
Aloe soaks deep into the skin.
Unlike water, which is often used as the base ingredient of skincare products, aloe can be deeply absorbed into the skin. This helps the active ingredients reach deeper into the skin, making your products more effective.
