Break off a leaf of Aloe Vera from plant; the gel-like liquid inside the leaf when applied to acne pimples helps heal acne faster and without scarring. Can also be used to wash entire face to keep skin looking healthy and to prevent acne in the first place.
Aloe plants are good

It's a great idea to have an aloe plant around because the gel inside helps the healing of burns and it cools your skin. Great for sunburn. I havent tried it on my zits tho yet...but I'll have to try it.

Aloe vera works very well to heal zits and red marks from previous acne as well.
helps heal without scarring

I used aloe gel from a fresh leaf and in a week my zits were reduced significantly without any redness or dryness. The second week was very beneficial for reducing scars. I am in my third week now and the healing is still continuing well.
Its so good

Im glad to see the results are well seen with aloe vera! I have seen some products at my local health store with aloe vera (99 5 alove vera listed), and was just wondering if this was as effective as using the gel from the plant.
Also, where can I find msyelf an aloe vera plant, are they easily available ? How much, and how ofetn should i use aloe vera?
thanx a bunch!
I strongly suggest it!

I usually get huge red bumps, that leave sacrs on my face. But ever since I have been using aloe vera on my face it has changed dramatically! YOu can get a plant at Home Depot, and its really cheap too! I love it and use it every night on my face!
Aloe Vera gel?

just wondering if aloe vera gel has the same effect? or do you actually have to use the pure aloe vera?

you can get liquid aloe vera (100%) from a good health food store. My facial lady recommends putting in a spray bottle in the fridge and spritzing your face as much as possible. I think I need to stop wearing makeup and use hats instead of sunscreen until my skin clears up. What a pain!

I've tried the 100% gel, and it does reduce scarring and redness, but it hasn't cleared up much of my acne. I guess the real stuff from the plants work better.
