Ligne St. Barth - Aloe Vera Gel with Mint - 4.2 oz
The allantoin within the formula boosts the soothing, softening and regenerative qualities of the aloe vera juice.
In addition, spearmint (Mentha viridis) and peppermint (Mentha piperita) complement and reinforce each other. Although both are stimulating, astringent and refreshing, spearmint is known to be more regenerative, whereas peppermint is proven to be more purifying.
Benefits: ALOE VERA:
Belonging to the aloe species, aloe vera or Barbados aloe (Aloe barbadensis) has been known since antiquity, and was used by the Egyptians for its medicinal and cosmetic properties more than 3,000 years ago. Legend even has it that Cleopatra used to add aloe vera juice to her bath. Traditional medicine began using this plant back in the 17th century in many hot regions of the world, including the Caribbean, where it is still widely cultivated today. The spiky, leathery-looking leaves of this oily plant are carefully cut to obtain the transparent pulp, which is known as aloe vera gel or juice.
Very rich in vitamins (A, B, C, E, etc.), trace elements and minerals (such as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, iron, etc.), enzymes (including bradykinin, which relieves swelling and promotes skin healing), sugars (mannose 6-phosphate and acemannan, which moisturizes and softens), glycoproteins and amino acids (phenylalanine, leucine, lysine, etc., which play a role in skin tissue regeneration), polysaccharides, etc., the aloe vera is a substantial mine of virtue. A beauty formula within a formula, this natural resource unravels a multitude of different virtues – soothing, moisturizing, regenerating, purifying, astringent, toning – which can benefit all skin types!
Directions: Refresh your face and revitalize your beauty:
Use morning and evening as a basic beauty treatment, gently applying a thin layer of Aloe Vera Gel with Mint into your face, around your eyes and over your neckline. Alternatively, apply more generously in a thick layer to moisturize, soothe and protect your skin. Alcohol-free and non-greasy, this gel creates a feeling of instant freshness. Soft and embracing, this fluent green gel is packed with the vivacious virtues of freshly cut mint.
The moisturizing gel soothes heated skin after sunbathing and relieves prickly skin or razor burn, bringing instant relief to all types of skin. The gel releases vitamins and essential trace elements helping the restoring of the epidermis. It revitalizes and beautifies all skin types, especially mature, dull, dry and sensitive skin.
Used as a facial moisturizing serum, it allows day or night cream to be absorbed more effectively. Use as a base before applying the Mango Butter Cream (or Enriched Mango Butter Cream) or the Moisturizing Facial Fluid HOMME.
Apply Avocado Oil after the Aloe Vera Gel with Mint to boost moisturizing performance.
Refresh your body and free your mind:
Use a generous amount of Aloe Vera Gel with Mint as an everyday moisturizer or for specific needs – after hair removal, in an air-conditioned environment, on a long-haul flight, after sunbathing or after sport or a sauna. Reapply regularly to combat moisture loss. For an even fresher feeling, simply place the bottle in the fridge prior to using. This beauty treatment pampers mature, unstressed or dilated skin with the virtues of aloe vera juice. It also provides relief for stretched, lifeless, undernourished and heated skin.
Soothe your scalp and feel as though your head is in the clouds:
Use Aloe Vera Gel with Mint as a mask, preferably in the evening, by applying a generous amount to your scalp and hair. Massage in using your fingertips to moisturize a dry scalp. This purifying treatment helps the maintenance of oily hair. As part of your morning beauty ritual, rub a little gel into damp or dry hair to style and protect it, giving dull hair a fresh, tonic boost.
