I have been using this for a week and this stuff is just amazing. I'm currently using it to fade pigmentation and red marks caused by acne and it has helped a lot. Makes my skin feel so soft and supple, and definitely helped a lot with calming new breakouts.

All you have to do is cut a leaf, scoop out the gel into a jar and store it in the fridge. A little goes a long way, I only take out a tablespoon of it at a time. I use a clean makeup brush to apply it to my face after I shower at night (it can be very slimy and messy so I found that this is the best way to apply it without dripping sap everywhere). I leave it on for 20-30 mins then I wash it off and then moisturise as usual.

P/s : It's important that you do a patch test first to ensure you're not allergic though. While it works for many of us I know a few people who are actually allergic to this stuff!

I have lots growing in my yard but it's only ornamental as it burns the crap out of my face and leaves me red as a strawberry. My kids can use it no problem.

Aloe vera gel from the plant is saving my skin and healing it. I was having a bad hormonal breakout on my cheeks and chin and forehead. Most of my face has cleared up but I still have red spots and some pimples that were deep in skin coming to a head finally! I'm glad this is working. I hope it gets rid of my red spots completely. I use this twice a day every other day because skin needs to breath. It's only been a week but seen major improvment will continue to use for however long it takes to get my face clear again! My grandma who is 80 has been using this all her life. She has no wrinkles and her skin looks flawless. She is the one who reccommended this to me and gave me a huge plant for myself. To use it I cut 2 or 3 stems, scoop out the gel and put it in a container in the fridge. Lasts more than a week. Give it a try! Be patient and consistent with it and you will see results I promise. Hope this helps anyone suffering with acne and acne spots! I will update in a month to share my progress :)

I love Aloe vera plant and I have been using a DIY Aloe Vera mask almost everyday with great results for acne and also anti-aging. Aloe vera is super high in Vitamin E and C which helps the skin regenerate. It also has anti-bacterial properties, which make this mask an amazing ally to help heal acne, prevent new acne breakouts, build collagen and smooths out wrinkles. Aloe Vera also helps heal burns, cuts, soothes sunburns and treats rosacea redness. All you need is a small piece of an Aloe Vera plant.You can use this mask everyday or 1x a week. You can leave it for 15 minutes or even leave it overnight. Try it out and you will see amazing results! Here is the link:

I just purchased Aloe Vera plant and I love it. I have been using it to moisturize my dry, sensitive skin and so far it works really well. It also soothes my skin and refreshes after a workout or hot summer day.
I will update on this later because I have been using it only for few days.

It is said that Cleopatra used Aloe Vera gel straight from the fresh cut stalk to keep her skin alive and beautiful. I love that for millenias this perfect plant has been benefiting us all as a humectant, medicine and food. I live in Florida and have a patch of Aloe Vera growing on the side of my house. Sun and water are all my babies need and they thrive.

As a child growing up in the tropics of Polynesia with Type 3 fair-medium skin I would burn with prolonged exposure. My mother would try to keep my skin protected but as kids do I would run around unprotected and would get burnt. She too would have plants and would rub me with the gel. It would work for a time but reapplication was needed every twenty minutes. I remember those miserable moments. As I got into my teens my skin "adapted" to the tropical sunshine. When in my early twenties living at the foot of Diamond Head I was a suntan junkie. No SPF just pure tan oil. What was I thinking?!? My skin had not "adapted" it was damaged. Auwe! I would tan easily but I still got burned if out for too long and would treat myself with the Aloe Vera. My skin was already starting to dry on my face so I moisturized with the Aloe Vera and Cocoa Butter daily thinking all would be well.

In my mid twenties I found Olive Oil to use as a humectant and stopped laying out as much. I was more into using my SPF 30 as times changed and we all became more aware of the danger of the Sun. The skin damage was done but luckily I had no cancers when I was checked. Could have the miracle plant Aloe Vera prevented it? I am still not sure as it may have been the 25% Native American genetics I have. I absorbed a vast amount of Aloe Vera gel straight from the stalk into my skin for the first twenty years of my life living in Hawaii though. So you never know.

In my early thirties I was not laying out at all and used my SPF 30 daily. I did not use as much Aloe Vera then but I started getting Rosasea and broken capillaries. I was told to use Aloe Vera and it did the trick of lightening it up quite a bit. In my forties I use it now nightly for rosasea before I put on my PTR Glycolic Acid serum and Cerave. I use it before putting on my sunscreen or BB cream in the day as well to lighten up the redness. The broken capillaries have all diminished as well but return when I use face scrubs. I now use a washcloth and cleanser. Then apply this and take Vitamin C. The capillaries get kept at bay.

I put some gel in my wake up smoothie too.

Wonderful Aloe Vera...the good for us Miracle Plant!

Aloe vera plant is the plant which is always been in my house. It grows easily even if you forget to water it for days. My grandma told me that aloe vera is good for hair and skin. She put alot on my hair as a hair mask, no wonder I have strong thick hair, I mean really thick. I did put on my face couple times many years ago, but at that moment I was at my best face condition.
So I've been struggling to get rid my red spot for more than 1.5 years. I tried several treatment, chemical peeling, laser, mesotherapy, some kind of treatment using different lights (I don't remember the name). But none of them works permanently, red spots just fade away for couple days after the treatment and reappear.
Some how I remember about this aloe vera plant and I did read some articles about aloe vera. Based on what I see in the internet, aloe vera helps removing the acne spot, not the acne itself. Even for some people, their acne is gone after using the aloe vera gel.
I cut the aloe vera plant and put the gel on my face for 10 minutes only, before the gel completely dry. [I always do a test before putting anything on my face, and I suggest anybody who has sensitive skin to do a test even aloe vera plant is a natural ingredient, but I've never had any problem with aloe vera, no test needed for me]
After the 3rd times using the aloe vera, I can see the difference, the redness is less visible. I use it at least 3times a week, even some people recommend to use it 2x everyday for better and faster result. But 3times a week, consistency and some patience is enough for me

I've had mixed results and wanted to share in case someone is wondering about side effects they have had. I used the gel from the plant all over my face to try to reduce a few red areas. I noticed great improvement after one night but after 3 or 4 nights I started getting odd blackheads and several small pimples everywhere. I'm sure it was the aloe because i stopped all other products and the acne that formed was in an unusual pattern. It seemed clear that the aloe was clogging pores. Darn. I guess it's better for use right after trauma but perhaps not every day - at least not on the face.

Nature's sunburn/minor burn relief. A natural humectant. A digestive aid. So many uses - but alas, i have a "brown thumb" and my plants tend to die. Nevertheless, I always try to keep a plant or two around.

This is my jam right here.
I use aloe vera for everything.
It tightens my pores, heals my sensitive skin, heals the sunburns that I get from walking out of the house for 2 minutes, it gets rid of pimples in just a few days, I also put a little aloe water into a home-made detangler which helps SO MUCH! I love it
