I have been using store bought aloe vera gel on my face. I am in the middle of a breakout, so I can't tell if it is complicating the problem. Can aloe vera clog pores? Am I better off using a lotion instead?
i think it depends on whether its 100% PURE aloe, anything that isnt clear in colour shouldn't be used. check it out. as far as i know 100% PURE does not clog pores but i have no personal experience of it yet so i cant be 100%. try stopping it for a while if it FEELS like it might be complicating things. ive stopped using all sorts on my face recently (i now goto bed with NOTHING applied to my skin and it actually seems to be clearing me up due to less irritation and/or clogged pores. try going easy on your skin for a while and see if it helps <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> good luck
