Holiday Gift Guide 2020: Desert Harvest Skin Care
If the pandemic has taught us one thing this year, it is that self care is more important than anything else. People are forgoing outside interests and taking care of themselves more than ever before, not in a selfish way, but deciding to finally take time to stop and smell the roses in this time of uncertainty. And with good reason, one never knows what is around the corner.
Because of the pandemic stress is at an all time high. And stress induced acne & eczema are also more pronounced too. I can speak from experience as I have a little bit of both. Even at age 49 I still get acne. Yes it is extremely frustrating but I seem to have found something that helps both of these issues. Desert Harvest makes Aloe Vera Skin Care that works well for stress induced acne and eczema. Or just plain acne and eczema (which is an inflammatory response in the skin). Read on below for my reviews.
4 fl.oz./118mL $9.00
This organic highest grade cold-pressed Aloe Vera gel is formulated to moisturize, soothe and relieve inflammation caused by irritation. Aloe Vera contains 75 active vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, amino acids and salicylic acid. It has an abundance of antioxidants including beta carotene, Vitamin C, Vitamin E and the mineral Zinc. Aloe Vera supports healthy tissue development, wound healing and aids in the prevention of tissue scarring and discoloration. By penetrating deep into the dermis, it helps to improve skin's natural firmness and helps to keep skin hydrated. It contains antibacterial, anti-fungal, antiviral and antimicrobial compounds that help prevent wound infection while stimulating collagen synthesis and skin regeneration.
Aloe Vera is a natural anti-inflammatory and pain reliever. It is effective for dryness, chemical burns, sunburns, rashes, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, acne, minor skin infections, tattoos, surgical scars, wound healing, insect bites, itching, chapping and razor burn. The gel can be used on all sensitive tissue as a soothing personal moisturizer for vulvodynia, lichen sclerosis, Sjorgen's and on the external vulva when it is irritated from waxing or wiping.
Aloe Vera moisturizes without leaving the skin greasy and doesn't clog the pores. Use it as a daily moisturizer under makeup or it as an aftershave for cuts and bumps (for both men and women). It has naturally occurring salicylic acid, that has the ability to unclog pores and reduce bacteria build-up, which is the trigger for acne lesions. Refrigerate the gel for an added cooling effect that can help alleviate and reduce swelling.

This gel for acne is made with 80% pure Aloe Vera concentrate. It is formulated to relieve pain, redness and inflammation of minor skin irritations and acne lesions. It also helps prevent scarring and discoloration. The gel can be used on the entire body. Desert Harvest Aloe Vera Acne Gel contains the most therapeutic levels of Aloe Vera. It moisturizes without leaving the skin greasy and will not clog pores. Naturally occurring salicylic acid in the Aloe Vera helps to unclog pores and reduce bacteria, which triggers acne flare ups.
Studies helps support the effectives of Aloe Vera to help with acne vulgaris, including its use with comedones, papules, pustules, nodules and cysts. When applied to the skin twice daily, after a month of use, 66% of subjects were entirely free of all acne lesions. 33% had marked improved with minimal residual acne lesions. There were no patients with negative reactions to the Aloe Vera treatment. Read more here about Dermatological Uses.

To use: squeeze a drop or two of the acne gel onto your ginger and apply a gin layer over your entire face and or body. Use morning and evening. Concentrate on active acne lesions. Can be used anywhere where acne lesions occur.
There is abundant evidence that Aloe Vera is an anti-inflammatory and works well on eczema and acne lesions. After using this gel on my own eczema I can say for certain that it does work to quell the itching and inflammation associated with flare-ups. I applied a light layer to the skin whenever I experienced any redness and itching. Immediately upon application the itching subsides and the redness also started to disappear. Luckily I only have eczema on my neck and scalp. I gave this to my daughter for her to use too and she applied it on her flare ups. She also noticed a difference when she applied it to her eczema.
As for acne lesions, I only experience them on my chin. I apply the acne gel to my chin whenever I am experiencing a hormonal breakout. The salicylic acid in Aloe Vera quickly heals the lesion and soothes any inflammation. It is an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory that works swiftly and is a natural acne treatment for mild to moderate acne lesions. It can also be used as a prophylactic treatment, apply daily in a light thin layer so you will prevent any breakouts without drying out the skin.
