    Aloe vera gel is soothing and moisturizing. Putting aloe on sunburned skin helps keep the skin’s natural moisture in because its consistency makes for an organic sealant. It also helps to protect the skin from exposure. Research has shown that aloe can also speed the healing process of burned skin. It also contains anti-inflammatory substances that help calm the area.

    Aloe Vera, the gel that is found in the Aloe plant, is good for burns because it contains aloectin B which stimulates the immune system and healing. Aloe helps skin renew itself by stimulating cellular metabolism, promoting oxygen exchange and increasing nutrient absorbtion. Aloe contains the anti-oxidant vitamins A and C; the minerals copper, selenium, and magnesium; and zinc, a powerful virus fighter. Additionally, the gel itself is cooling and moisturizing, comforting burn sites and preventing them from drying and peeling.
