Aloe Vera juice is helping my inflamed skin but after 5 days of using it, some of my recent acne scars are fading must faster than they did before. Hopefully in the long run, it will work on the scars that I've had for over a year now.
It's the last thing I apply after cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and bp. It's Aubrey Organics, very watery, but it has almost no additives.
It makes my skin feel pretty tight which I don't mind at all and it's not causing new break outs. And I'm blotting less this week! The calming effects on redness and irritation is what I'm most excited about.
I was hoping maybe someone else could try this and let me know how it works it works.
Question one- has anyone tried this for acne? I am hoping desperately to find something that will replace bp for good.
Question two- Is there a good way to jump start cell turnover for deep purplish marks? Do i use a harsher exfoliant? Are peels ok for sensitive/oily/acne prone skin? I can handle having a few days of redness from using something more gritty, but I don't want to cause more breakouts by damaging my skin barrier and affecting my the ph of my skin.
Question three-I've recently read that using oils with anti-oxidants and bp at the same time could be doing some damage that I may not see right this moment. Any truth to this chemical reaction? Should I be waiting longer between applications of each product?
Question four- Could bp and using aloe vera juice cancel each other out? I'm always confused about reactions between products.
Last question- any tips on how to wean my face off of bp? When i stop using it, will my skin ever start taking care of itself again or will i always have the rash of acne> Is there really a cure for my acne?
