Moha products


According to weather forecast reports, 2019 is predicted to become the hottest year ever with severe heat waves blowing this summer. Summertime is always fun but, with the rising temperatures, also come tanned skin, sunburns, sweaty clothes, allergies, skin infections, dehydration and fatigue! Just 15 minutes of sun exposure can cause permanent damage to your skin.

Summer heat also draws up more moisture from your skin, leaving it dehydrated. Herbs go a long way in protecting and healing your skin from multiple skin problems. Aloe vera is a great solution for skin and hair concerns due to its miraculous benefits. The gel obtained from the long succulent leaves of Aloe vera can work as a magic ingredient as your skin cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and sunscreen as well as a healer! Here’s a quick list of benefits of aloe vera for the skin:

Natural Cleanser: Aloe vera has excellent cleansing and antiseptic properties.

Natural Toner: It is a great toner & helps in boosting collagen synthesis thus keeping your skin soft and supple. 

Natural Moisturizer: Aloe vera gel hydrates your skin deeply giving it a natural glow.

Natural Sunscreen: Aloe vera gel protects your skin from damage caused by harmful UV radiation.

Natural Anti-ageing agent: The leaves are rich in Vitamins A, C, E and B12. These work as anti-oxidants i.e. they protect your skin from oxidative damage and help delay wrinkles, dark spots and other signs of aging. 

Natural Healer: The salicylic acid present in its leaves reduces inflammation. Aloe leaves also help to relieve acne and skin infections due to their anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.
