    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    So you don't put any medicines on your face at all or do you rotate them with aloe vera?

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    My problems are almost exclusively shaving related, but I wash with a gentle soapless cleanser, apply aloe vera, wash again in the morning with the same cleanser (Spectro Jel), and, if necessary, apply Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisture during the day. Alternately (at one night intervals) I will use either a product called Witch Vera (made up of witch hazel and aloe vera) or Jason's Tea Tree Oil (with aloe vera, tea tree oil, AND witch hazel). This keeps my skin in more or less perfect shape - aloe vera obviously being the mainstay.

    Yeh, do you use any thing else with the mask?
    I used witch hazel, but it is too strong and irritates my skin
    I used a aloe vera mask, not like the one you are using, it was a green gunky mask that you left on for 15 mins. Although it made my skin feel tighter, it didn't help with my spots.
    I am hoping this gel will do better.

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    I personally don't find that aloe vera is a very effective moisturizer - I typically need to apply a moisturizer after washing the residual aloe vera off in the morning.

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    for ppl who HAVE found aloe vera to be effective: do you guys (or gals) have mild, moderate, or severe acne? Maybe aloe vera is only strong enough to help those with mild acne?

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    Effective as a moisturizer or effective in preventing break-outs? Aloe vera will likely not do a great deal for any kind of acne, save for reducing inflammation and accelerating the healing of open lesions. It's certainly not going to make things any worse, so at the very least you should experiment with it.

    Re: The Wonders of Aloe Vera

    hey, i have the fruit of the earth 100% aloe vera gel and i like it, although in the begining when i purchased it i liked it better than i do now. i used to put it all over my face and i didn't break me out and it still doesnt but i don't really see any major improvements either. i have oily skin so i dont really like to use moisturizer because i have a fear that it will break me out, so i use the aloe vera gel as my moisturizer, but i don't use too much because it can look wierd on the skin like tight and shiny(if that makes any sense). i also put it on pimples that i popped which look really red and irritated and i feel that it is helping the healing process. good luck, i hope some people see improvement although i cant really say i have.
