Aloe is the perfect ingredient for repairing skin during scorching summer months spent under the sun. Aloe works to soothe sunburns thanks to its cooling and anti-inflammatory properties. In addition, it lightens blemishes and fights the signs of aging (which are often made more apparent when in direct contact with powerful UV rays). The leaves of the aloe contain a gel with bioactive compounds as well as vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, which make it extremely moisturizing. The Volition Orangesicle Balancing Daily Cleanser is a refreshing way to incorporate the ingredient into your morning and nighttime beauty routine.

You might even find it on the ingredients list written as “mel.” Explore the best of honey when you try the Cannuka Purifying Gel Balm Cleanser.

Avocados are rich in nutrients and serve up some serious goodness when slathered on toast. However, it also has dermatological benefits. Avocados offer up natural oils, fats, and vitamins that work to nourish and hydrate skin, helping to reduce lines and boost skin’s immunity to stress. It specifically helps to improve chronic skin conditions such as eczema and acne. If you’re not trying to rub a mashed avocado on your face, try the Klei Beauty Avocado & Rosehip Nourish Treatment Oil instead.
