Aloe Vera For Acne

Aloe vera for acne comes in the form of a cool, clear gel derived from the aloe plant. Considered to be one of nature's miracles by many, aloe vera has been used medically for it's healing properties for well over 4000 years.

Despite centuries of testimonial evidence regarding the possible curative and cosmetic powers of aloe vera gel, it has been for the most part, ignored by mainstream medicine. Only recently has it been the subject of increased scientific investigation.

This miraculous plant contains many beneficial qualities - polysaccharides, enzymes, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. These properties allow aloe vera to reduce inflammation, speed healing, stop pain, improve vascular flow and reduce scarring.

Most important is the ability to speed healing which reduces scarring. This is a priority for anyone suffering from acne. Many people have reported excellent results when treating their acne by applying a thin layer of aloe vera gel on the affected skin. The enzymes in the gel relieved pain, reduced inflammation and decreased redness. As a result of accelerated healing, scarring was greatly reduced.

You can buy aloe vera for acne treatment in gel form without a prescription. It is cheap - roughly $4.00 for a 6 ounce tube. However, if you own an aloe plant, you can simply cut a leaf and use the gel within knowing that you are using the most beneficial, 100 percent pure aloe vera.

Since aloe vera is also widely used to treat cuts, scrapes, burns and insect bites, having your own plant can be very useful.
