    How to protect your skin from the sun? Treatment for burns

    How to Prevent Sunburn?

    Some measures that we always have to take into account to avoid sunburn, no matter how tanned we are:

    1. You should not be exposed to the bright midday sun at the beginning of summer for more than 30 minutes, even if you have dark skin. In temperate zones, exposure before 10 a.m. and after 3 p.m. is considered less dangerous because more radiation responsible for burns is filtered out at this time. 

    2. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen

    3. Apply 30 minutes before sun exposure. 

    4. Repeat every hour even if it is cloudy. 

    5. Apply again after swimming or sweating.

    6. Seek protection from shadows or umbrellas.

    7. Avoid exposure to the sun during the central hours of the day between 12:00 and 16:00.

    8. Wear hats, scarves, sunglasses with UV protection and T-shirts to protect yourself.

      

    What to do in case of a sunburn?

    Once we feel the first symptoms of sunburn or suspect that we have been able to produce it, we must act as follows:

    1. Drink plenty of water

    2. Refrigerate the lesion with running water at room temperature for several minutes or with the application of Moisturizing Gel. Do not use ice under any circumstances, as this is counterproductive.

    3. Use Pure Aloe Vera Gel which has soothing and cooling ingredients of the skin. The crystal containing the Aloe vera plant is filled with water and essential nutrients that stimulate cell repair to restore sun-affected skin.

    Its properties combat dryness and soothe irritation from first- and second-degree burns.

    4. Avoid using ointments and lotions containing local anesthetics (benzocaine) and other sensitizing drugs, as they may cause irritation and increase the risk of allergic contact dermatitis.

    5. If the skin is blistered, do not use oil-based products. They can block pores, prevent heat and sweat from escaping, and can cause infection.

    6. Let the skin rest for several days before being exposed to the sun again.

  4. Aloe vera for Acne

    Aloe vera for Acne

    What is Acne and why does it appear?

    Acne is a skin condition characterized by the appearance of small pimples or blackheads. These usually consist of sebum, dead cells and other waste.

    It is usually caused by an imbalance in the activity of the sebaceous glands, which are connected to the hair follicles beneath the skin.

    They often appear on the face and back, although they can also originate in the neck, arms, and other areas of the body.

    They rarely cause pain, although sometimes the pore becomes infected and a problem of greater care is generated.

    Their exact cause is not determined, but one of the main causes is hormonal changes due to sexual development.

     

    Although it does not represent a serious health problem, it can manifest itself chronically, leaving some scars and affecting aesthetics.

     

    Why Aloe vera?

    Aloe vera has been studied with favorable results as an ally to combat acne.

    Aloe vera gel has astringent and antibacterial properties thanks to saponins that act effectively against redness and infections. In the long term, we ensure that the symptoms do not get worse and that the number of pimples or blackheads does not increase.

    Its moisturizing active ingredients penetrate easily into the pores and facilitate the elimination of dead cells, impurities and sebum.

    Aloe vera is soothing, which allows us to relieve the itching of the affected area and prevents us from scratching and further infecting the pimples.

    Thanks to its astringent property, Aloe vera is excellent for maintaining proper hygiene in the affected area and controlling the production of fat that causes acne.

    It helps to reduce the scars caused by acne or pimples by promoting skin regeneration with properties that stimulate the development of cells and their restoration.

     

    It helps to treat post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and this refers to those dark marks that remain after the pimples have healed as the aloin is a depigmenting agent, so it helps to lighten the dark areas in the skin.

    It is also one of the best ingredients for regulating the skin's natural pH and promoting the balance of the sebaceous glands.

    In addition, its regular application prevents the appearance of premature wrinkles, allergies and other disorders that affect the skin's beauty.

  7. The lies of the aloe vera industry

    The lies of the aloe vera industry

    How to distinguish between Aloe juice and powder?

    The fresh active Aloe is highly photosensitive so a drinkable juice in a transparent container shows that in its content there is no fresh Aloe since it will degrade in a few daysChoose opaque or dark containers when buying juices with Aloe vera. In addition, the containers must be hermetically sealed and must not pass through light or air, so that the properties of Aloe vera are not lost.

    You will recognize its authenticity when tasting the juice and that its taste is bitter and characteristic. In reality there is not much difference with the juice you get when you peel an Aloe vera leaf and liquefy it.

    - The pulp of Aloe Vera is white translucent and this color turns yellow after processing so if your aloe is presented in another color is not fresh aloe and its color obeys dyes.

    The price of Aloe vera is closely related to the type of preparation of the product. The techniques that best preserve the qualities of the plant, such as the process of cold stabilization, are more complex than others and is reflected in the price of Aloe vera. The simplest thing, from the economic point of view, is to use fast techniques that take out the production in a short period of time, without paying attention to the own characteristics of the plant.

    It is therefore that the price will be a factor that can help us.

    For example, a 100% pure aloe vera juice of 1 liter, can be between 25€ and 35€ per liter, anything below € 20 can be thought to be made with powders or concentrates.

    - Find out what kind of aloe vera the product contains. Such a product must be organically grown and processed very quickly so that it does not lose its properties. The species of aloe vera must be Barbadensis Miller, the most popular and efficient for humans.

    -The local is also important. When we buy a product of Aloe vera in a hypermarket or supermarket, where they sell us a cream, that a chicken, that some shoes, we can already begin to doubt its quality. The ideal is to buy it in a store specializing in aloe vera.

    Argan, the gold of the desert

    Argan Oil has acquired much fame in its cosmetic use due to its numerous health benefits, nourishes the skin, hair and slows down the aging process. Because of this and many other reasons it has earned the nickname "liquid gold".

    Argan oil is extracted from the fruits of the argan tree (Argania spinosa). It takes 35 kilos of its peculiar fruits to obtain a single litre of the precious oil. This is why this oil is one of the most expensive in the world.

    Argan trees are found in southwestern Morocco. They are very well adapted even to extremely harsh and dry environmental conditions. The roots of the argan tree grow deeply even under arid and semi-arid soils.

    In 1999, UNESCO declared the Argan forests a World Heritage Site to protect the World Biosphere Reserve from extinction by deforestation and desertification.

    For its extraction is necessary a slow and laborious process developed exclusively by women, today there are 300 women's cooperatives dedicated to the production of argan oil in the North African country.

    The recovery of this elixir has revolutionized the world of beauty and life of the inhabitants of this Moroccan region.

    Thousands of women have already started to work in one of the 300 cooperatives and earn a stable salary. The money obtained from its sale allows financing literacy projects in the area and, most importantly, provides a means of subsistence for women, especially widows and divorced women. Female illiteracy has risen from 95% to 50% in the area in 20 years and the Government has committed to reforesting 200,000 hectares of Argan trees by 2025.

    Lanzaloe works with one of these cooperatives.
