If you’re like most people, when you get a sunburn, you reach for the aloe vera. Many people use aloe to treat sunburns at home when the burns are not severe enough to require urgent care, but does aloe really work?
Watch this video to learn about the healing properties of aloe. Despite the popularity of aloe as a burn treatment, there is very little research into how it works. The research that does exist suggests that aloe protects against infection and reduces inflammation.
