For decades, people have been discussing the healing power of plants – and even so much so that many groups have dedicated themselves to plant-based diets, and lifestyles – relying solely on the power of plants to nourish and heal their bodies.
For those of us a little more skeptical about going cold-turkey (pun not intended) it is certainly worth utilizing plant botanicals for topical solutions and alternatives.
One incredible plant is the Aloe Vera plant which has so many benefits, especially as an itchy dry skin relief solution.
- It contains plant compounds
The beauty and cosmetics industry have used Aloe Vera increasingly as a key ingredient in products that are meant to treat and heal skin conditions. The plant is known for its thick, fleshy leaves – but even more notorious for its sticky, slimy flesh inside which stores water. This is what gives it that “gel” like consistency that many are familiar with. It is this said that contains the most beneficial bioactive compounds such as vitamins, antioxidants and minerals that are naturally occurring.
- It is antibacterial and antioxidant
Because it is high in antioxidants it is known to kill microbials, bacteria and viruses. This is why it is such an incredibly powerful plant for healing wounds and treating skin irritations quickly.
- It speeds up healing of wounds
By simply rubbing the aloe vera plant gel onto the itchy dry skin it will start to heal. It is perfect for treating any sore, burns especially red sunburnt skin. There are even studies that prove its effectiveness for first and second degree burns. So it would be highly beneficial as an itchy dry skin relief.
- It can improve and prevent the appearance of wrinkles.
When applied topically, aloe vera gel can slow down the aging process in the skin. A study performed with 30 females over 45 who took it orally showed improved skin elasticity over 90 days.
There are so many benefits to Aloe Vera – and the main reason why it is so beneficial in the Skin MD Shielding lotion formula is its ability to retain moisture. The loss of moisture is the number one cause of dry, aging skin – so it makes sense to use a product boasting with Aloe to restore your skin back to health.

“I had a patch of skin on my hand that would get dry, crack, heal and then the cycle would start all over again. I had been applying moisturizing lotions and creams for a few months without noticing any noticeable improvement. I ordered Skin M.D. shielding lotion from Amazon and have been applying it three times a day for 1-2 months and have noticed a great improvement. I no longer experience the itchiness and pain that I had been experiencing before. It's not an overnight solution, although I felt instant relief the moment I put it on. It isn't greasy and bonds to the skin quickly meaning it doesn't rub off onto things you touch later.” – Cornelius
