The good thing about having an active lifestyle is that well, I sleep better (having spent my energy) and of course, that I can continue to eat like a horse being the foodie that I am. BUT the bad thing is that it does horrifying things to my hair and (gasp) skin!
I recently went on a short trip to Krabi to spend some days under the sun, in the pool and on the beaches. Importantly, I wanted to bring Dumpling for open sea snorkelling.
Each day after all the fun (AND THE SUN!), I'd head back to the hotel with skin that is dry and a tad hot to touch. Thankfully I received 2 tubes of Dr. Lily's Aloe Vera Gel prior to my trip and decided to bring them along for a 'road test'.
It's common knowledge that Aloe Vera has many healing properties and are exceptionally good for sunburns. While Dumpling and I did not get any burns, I am fairly diligent about facial care. With the amount of sun that we are both getting coupled with sea water AND chlorine, I was not going to take any chance.
Instead of using something that is oil based which may not be suitable for Dumpling, I smeared Dr. Lily's Aloe Vera Gel all over on our limbs and even our faces - in the morning when we are up and before we go to bed. Being water based, I did not have to worry that the properties are not suitable for Dumpling. The gel was nice, refreshing and cooling on our golden skin.
Then on Day 2, being the klutz that I am, I slipped on the stainless steel ladder when coming down from the longtail boat which we were on. I had a fairly large bruise on the side of my shin and I recalled that Aloe Vera has anti inflammatory properties amongst many others. This is how my bruise looks after 3 days; it has basically faded to a pale yellow.
The kiddo does not like any sticky or greasy after-feel and neither do I. But of course, we did not have problems with the gel and it was being absorbed quickly. Best of all, this product has no fragrance which works for me as I am picky about scents!
