Aloe Vera For Acne And Scarring

2 posts in this topic

Just wanted to share my experience with aloe vera and my acne. I incidently came across an aloe vera plant in my backyard and my mum suggested I use it to treat my skin. LO AND BEHOLD. After using it religiously for 1 week, the redness and irritation almost went away! I still have a few spots here and there but compared to a week ago the difference is HUGE.

I was previously using Phisophex and it burned my skin SO BAD, I was left with flaky brown scars across my chin and cystic pimples all over my forehead and chin.

I did a bit more research on the benefits of aloe vera and I'm so glad I started using this miracle plant!

Aloe vera has anti-biotic, anti-bacterial, anti-sepctic and anti-fungal properties which is perfect for fighting against the bacteria causing acne. It's also helps reducing inflamed and irritated skin too!

The way I use this plant, is to simply cut off a chunk, peel off the skin and apply it directly to my entire face! I wash it off gently with lukewarm water after 30-40 minutes and then start my usual skin routine.

Hope this can help someone out there experiencing acne, pimples and acne scarring!

After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo. I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month. I can live with that

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry. In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.
