Many customers ask us whether it is suitable to use aloe vera for blemished skin. Dermatologists usually recommend the use of sunscreen as a precaution to minimise the harmful effects of the sun, even if it is only a preventive measure. The problem arises when we already have these dark spots (or hyperpigmentation) on our skin. If this is your case, in this article we will address your concerns by explaining why they appear, the benefits of aloe vera to treat them and the best products to take care of your skin.
Why do blemishes appear on the face?
Hyperpigmentation is generally caused by the accumulation of melanin in certain areas of the skin. These deposits can be caused by sun exposure, hormonal changes, ageing, acne, allergic reactions and the use of medicines or cosmetic products such as perfumes. In addition, environmental factors such as pollution can also play a role.
On the other hand, while they can appear on any part of the body, they are more frequent on the face, as this is the area we most expose to the sun, both in summer and winter. Despite not being aesthetically pleasing, they are not dangerous and are not a cause for concern.
Benefits of aloe vera for skin blemishes
Using aloe for facial blemishes is a great idea, as it will help mitigate the dark tone of the complexion. It is a plant with a multitude of properties that also benefit the skin. Let's examine some of them:
It is antioxidant: When hyperpigmentation has been caused by age, using aloe vera offers great advantages. It is rich in vitamins A, C and E, which are essential to prevent ageing and stimulate collagen production.
It is moisturising: It is good for hydrating the deeper layers of the skin, eliminating recurring dryness, one of the main causes of blemishes.
It is regenerative: It helps to repair and restore the skin. Therefore, it eliminates the faintest blemishes and minimises the most intense ones. You will also notice an improvement in fine lines.
It is astringent: If your skin is young and has acne, you will find in aloe the perfect solution, as it is antibacterial and sebum-regulating.
How to make facial blemishes disappear
When choosing a product to treat facial blemishes, we recommend that you choose those based on natural ingredients. Such is the case with our aloe vera products and all the products we produce: they are more skin-friendly and do not harm the environment.
We also recommend that you persevere and be patient. There are no overnight solutions, so you need to provide consistency in your beauty
Find out about the products we offer at Finca Canarias to help you with facial hyperpigmentation! Here is our recommendation:
Pure aloe vera gel
At Finca Canarias we obtain pure aloe vera gel by cold pressing the pulp of our aloe leaves. It is ideal for certain skin conditions, such as burns, psoriasis, dermatitis or acne, among others. It is 98% pure and should be kept in the refrigerator once opened. This will ensure that its properties last longer.
Aloe vera facial cream
Our aloe vera face cream provides intensive hydration and is enriched with vitamin C to improve skin health. We've enhanced the properties of aloe vera with the active ingredients of other natural ingredients in its formulation. One of these ingredients is jojoba oil, known for its healing properties, which helps to reduce skin blemishes. In addition, we have incorporated sweet orange oil, which stimulates collagen production and is especially beneficial for mature skin.
We recommend using it both day and night, massaging upwards until it is completely absorbed.
Aloe vera and vitamin C serum
Our serum, formulated with aloe vera and vitamin C, offers intensive anti-ageing, anti-spot and brightening action. When used regularly, it helps reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation on the skin. This effect is achieved thanks to extracts of orange, lemon, grape and olive oil that complement the blemish-fighting properties of this aloe. In addition, this serum has a silky texture that is quickly absorbed.
Ideally, apply it morning and evening to cleansed skin before using the intensive moisturising cream with vitamin C.
Anti-blemish aloe vera scrub
Our apricot kernel and aloe vera peel is one of the best solutions to lighten your skin. We recommend using it once a week or every 10 days, depending on the thickness of your skin. By massaging it in, you will quickly remove the top layer of dead skin cells and deeply cleanse the pores.
Remove the residue with lukewarm water and then apply the intense vitamin C moisturiser. Not only will your skin need that moisture, but it's also the best time for your cream to show its full effectiveness.
Brightening the skin with aloe vera
Aloe vera for blemished skin is a superb natural solution thanks to its abundance of beneficial components. At Finca Canarias we welcome you to enjoy the benefits of the pure gel, as well as the products specifically formulated to address this problem. By applying our creams consistently, you will significantly reduce hyperpigmentation and achieve a more luminous complexion.
