Hi all,

 

Last summer I got reallyyyyy bad sun poisoning, like 3rd degree burn poisoning. My face was red like a tomato, peeling in chunks, blistering and oozing. It was bad. Anyway, I used aloe vera straight from the plant and it fixed my face in a week.

 

Now, I have many red marks and hyper pigmentation from previous breakouts that take FOREVER to go away.

 

I was wondering if aloe vera will help with that? I want to try it but am scared of irritation or more breakouts. 

 

Anyone have any experience with aloe vera and acne/hyperpigmentation? 

 

Thank you :)

Aloe helps any and all skin ailments. As long as you don't show any kind of reaction to it, use it.

Yes, it can help a lot but be careful of 2 things:

1) If you put too much of it on your face it can clog your pores

2) Either get it straight from the plant (provided it's clean) or find a brand that is as pure as possible without nasty preservatives like sodium benzoate
