Aloe Vera for Skin Treatment

Roughly 13 million people around the world suffer from acne. The benefits of Aloe Vera for Acne is enough to get rid of acne. However, you have to be persistent when using Aloe Vera for your skin. You can find Aloe Vera in soaps, gels, pills, and even lotions. It can act effectively in removing excess oil from skin, without adding any harsh chemicals like most prescribed skin products.

The strong Aloe Vera plant can survive anywhere except for heavily watered areas or freezing temperatures. Aloe Vera for acne is quite powerful in treating skin blemishes, however it is used for other things as well. During 1750 BC, people found that it could also treat upset stomachs along with nausea. Aloe contains over 21 vitamins and minerals, 22 amino acids, amongst many anthraquinones.

Natural Aloe Soaps

Try purchasing a facial soap which has Aloe Vera in it. Though it is not a good idea to wash your face too much with soap since it results in premature exfoliation, you'll still want to keep your face clean from any lingering oil.

Eczema Skin Problems

Acne is caused from excess toxins built up by clogging of your pores from dead, oily skin cells. The results aren't pretty since bacteria lives amongst the surface. Be aware though, most Aloe Vera pills will have a horrible taste. To dodge this, you'll want to take something called AloeElite. It is nontoxic, pure and gives endless possibilities in benefits of Aloe Vera for acne.

Delicious Aloe Vera Smoothie Recipe

Another great way to get rid of Acne is drinking Aloe Vera juice. To give yourself a healthy boost, you can use this to help remove acne scars and produce a clear complexion. Try making a great tasting Strawberry-Honey Aloe Smoothie. To make it, use the follow ingredients:

  • Gather 1 pound of fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 lemon from squeezed juice
  • 1/2 cup ginger tea and 2 tablespoons of honey
  • Add to blender, while also blending in the main ingredient - 8 tablespoons of Aloe Vera gel.

Bathing for Unusual Acne Blemishes

Aloe Vera for acne should be used twice each week in your bath to treat other areas of your skin. What you can do is run the bathwater, while adding 1 cup of Aloe plant juice to the water. Another good idea is to place a second Aloe soap bar in the bathtub shelf. Soak in tub for at least 20 minutes before washing any blemishes on your body. Use the soap while lathering thoroughly. Skin should be patted dry. Once you're done, you can towel dry yourself, then add Aloe lotion.
