Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

I agree that aloe vera is highly effective, particularly as an anti-inflammatory. The only problems are that it can be somewhat drying for more sensitive skin types, but only very slightly. Also, its antibacterial properties are relatively slight, and bacteria tends to thrive in moist or hot areas (which is obviously why many people find that their acne worsens during the summer). Nevertheless, refridgerated aloe vera is still easily the best aftershave I have ever experimented with.
