I am oh-so-careful to use sunscreen during the summer. It’s easy to remember when temps reach 100 degrees and the sun is blazing. But, in the chilly fall and frigid winter, my vigilance tends to fade like the summer sun.
Luckily, the winter sun is not very strong. But, spending any significant amount of time outdoors still increases potential exposure and damage.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “Winter sports enthusiasts are at increased risk for overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation. The combination of higher altitude and UV rays reflected by the snow puts skiers and snowboarders at an increased risk of sun damage…”
Of course, even slathering on heavy-duty sunscreen, sometimes my fair skin still gets sunburned. That’s when I turn to the natural healing power of aloe vera.
For thousands of years, people have used the gel from aloe vera leaves for healing the skin. And Zim’s Max Aloe Acemannan Gel contains hospital grade Acemannan aloe, nature’s purest form of aloe vera. Some competitors’ products contain only trace amounts!
The gel is colorless and odorless. It smooths onto the skin easily (even parched lips!) and soothes the effects of the sun’s harsh rays. It takes a while to absorb fully, however, so I wouldn’t recommend using it right before bed.
Not only does it make skin feel better, it makes it look better, too. Zim’s Max Aloe Acemannan Gel reduces the inflammation associated with a burn and moisturizes, as well, to prevent peeling. (And we all know how lovely a peeling face is, winter or summer!)
Zim’s Max Aloe Acemannan Gel retails for just $9.99 at Zim’s USA, or at your local Walmart or Walgreens.
So, who’s ready to hit the slopes?
