The Perfect Hydrating Holiday Gift
The air is growing colder out there, and the holidays will soon be upon us.
That means plenty of Turkey and Pumpkin Pie … plenty of time with the family, and for many Americans—plenty of snow and icy cold weather. It can be a truly wonderful time of year.
But it can also bring dry skin, chapped lips, and cracked hands & heels.
To overcome those tough and persistent side effects of cold wintry weather, it’s important to keep your skin as hydrated as possible throughout the winter months. And of course—for obvious reasons—Aloe is one of the best choices for getting that done. It’s an all-natural solution for smoother skin year-round.
So what’s the problem? “Where’s the rub” as they say?
Well, the “rub” is that it’s best to rub in heaping amounts of aloe, then put on a pair of socks or gloves. But that can get a bit messy … so some brilliant mind had the idea to infuse the aloe directly into socks and gloves.
The result? Pure heaven for your hands and feet. Just slip on a pair of these comfortable booties/mittens and you’ll soon find your skin feeling super soft and rejuvenated.
They’re just a great, non-invasive way to enjoy the wonderful effects of Aloe on your skin. Try them when you’re watching TV … when you step out of the shower or just before heading off to sleep and you’ll be enjoying the benefits right away.
Let’s take a look at some of the wonderful alternatives out there for you to try …
Earth Therapeutics Aloe Socks: $9.50 on Amazon.com
These wonderful socks are our first recommendation with good reason—because we’ve actually tried them!
This brand is commonly available at some supermarkets and drug stores, and a member of our staff picked up a pair on happenstance for his girlfriend. She gave the socks rave reviews; enjoying the refreshing treat on occasion.
These socks are extremely soft and loaded with Aloe, to the point where you can feel it, but they’re not gel-lined or anything like that. The only downside is that they’re not really built to last. Sometimes after just a few wearings, they’ll start to shed fabric.
Aloe Plush Gloves: $7 at Bed Bath and Beyond
Infused with both Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, these super-soft gloves offer your hands the same gentle pampering that Aloe Socks give to your feet.
Since they won’t see the same wear that Aloe socks might see, the Aloe and Vitamin E in these gloves is said to last an impressive 20 washings before it’s depleted.
Touchscreen Aloe Gloves: $8 at Wal-Mart
Looking to indulge a bit, but still get your work done? How about a Touchscreen-compatible, Aloe-infused glove to treat yourself?
We know; we couldn’t quite believe it either, but we’d definitely be willing to give this one a shot. With the same soft and fuzzy texture, we can imagine these gloves must be heavenly.
Still Second Best
Of course, Aloe-infused socks and gloves can be a great way to moisturize and rejuvenate your skin during the winter months. But at the end of the day—if you want to enjoy Aloe’s full spectrum of benefits—there’s simply no substitute for an oral Aloe supplement.
Good for everything from digestive issues to improved circulation and cardiovascular health, the benefits of Aloe can go much further than skin deep.
