Does aloe vera acne treatments work on pimples? Well people and even doctors claim they have seen positive results from using the aloe vera plant to stop and cure pimples.
What Is Aloe Vera
We should all know of the aloe vera plant. We have either grown the green spindly thing in our home or seen it in someone else’s home. It is that plant we run to and break off a stem and rub the soothing gel on a burn or wound we may have received.
The plant comes from the dry arid areas of Africa but cannot survive in areas where it freezes, unless you grow it in your home. It is probably one of the easiest plants to grow in-doors because you can almost ignore it completely. Just water it once and once again when it is completely dry.
How It Works On Acne
The gel of the aloe vera plant is very rich in enzymes that have anti-inflammatory properties, antibacterial properties and is very soothing to the skin. Plus it has polysaccharides that are used in repairing your damaged skin.
With all these powerful substances in the gel of the aloe vera plant, they will decrease your inflammation and scarring caused by pimples.
If taken internally it also helps to clean up and even detoxify your digestive system. I would not suggest you sucking on the stem of an aloe vera leaf that you find in your home, but instead buy some liquid aloe vera at your store. It comes in liquid form which all you have to do is drink.
If used consistently and regularly, aloe vera can greatly improve and stop your pimples. It will also repair the scaring on your face caused by pimples.
How To Use It
One of the best ways I found to use this is as a facial mask. Rather than ravage your plants at home, I suggest buying the gel at your local store and follow the directions on the container.
The directions will generally have you apply the gel to your face, let it dry, go to bed and wash it off with warm water in the morning. Then an important step for all people suffering from pimples is to cleanse your face after you wash off the gel.
You should use the facemask at least once a week but in the mean time, apply the gel daily to the areas on your face that have pimples.
Aloe vera has been proven to help stop acne and cure the scarring of acne on your face because of the ingredient polysaccharides. This ingredient helps to repair skin damage caused by pimples.
