Using Aloe Vera For Treating Acne

Aloe vera has been used for curing skin problems, like dandruff, and small burns, which are easily healed by aloe. It can also be used as acne solution because aloe has cleansing properties.

Acne is caused by bacteria that infect the pimples on one's face. The oil glands that overproduce the sebum fill up the skin pores and the pimple grows from clogged skin pores. Cleaning up the skin and encouraging it to grow younger, healthier cells will control the acne growth.

Pimples are not only caused by lack of good skin hygiene. Diet also plays a role in causing overproduction of sebum. Control the types of foods you eat. Avoid eating too much nuts and meat. Drink plenty of water and exercise regularly to expel excess oil and sweat from the body. This keeps the pores clean.

Many drinks have begun using aloe vera extract in them. An example is the drink on the right mixing aloe vera with guava. Another type mixes flavored water with aloe vera bits. It tastes good and the body is refreshed with the much needed nutrients.
