Leave it to burning and bone dry desert surroundings to create the ultimate skin soother. Ole Henriksen bottled the reparative properties and cooling sensation that is aloe vera gel and upgraded it to a multi functional summer essential.
Pure straight up aloe vera gel wouldn’t be something I’d consider buying, but I know a lot of people swear by it as it’s good for so many things. Ole Henriksen All Purpose Aloe Vera Gel combines the fresh juicy with spirulina, soothing allatoin, panthnol and chamomile extracts to really be the comfort blanket our skin needs in times of need.
I got a slight sunburn on my arms last week after forgetting my trusted Avène Reflex SPF50. All that driving in the car, the sudden water side pick nicking and playtime with my newphew in the garden.. the sunburn is there before you even know it! I showered that evening with the signs of red as I only know white, red and a Mediterranean tan if I really invest into it for 2 weeks. A cool shower followed up with a big amount of this aloe gel cleared me up in 2 days.
Burned skin hurts when the sun hits it again so it’s in everyone’s best interest to not let it get that far.. it happens to the best so get some good aftercare. This could easily be an aftershave, post shaving treatment, moisturizer to cool irritation, etc. It won’t hydrate a whole lot but think more of this as a soothing treatment to get the redness and irritation down.
