“We came here on vacation. I had forgotten to bring my base makeup. I’ve had problems with acne. I used the base makeup to cover my problem. I picked up your cream on Monday and by Wednesday I do not need to use the base makeup. My acne has improved tremendously! Thanks so much!” – M.D.
What is Acne?
Acne is a common skin disorder that affects almost 80% of teens and young adults up to age 30, but it can start at any age.
Many people suffer from “Adult Acne.” Acne is caused by the interaction of 4 different factors:
- The production of sebum by the sebaceous gland
- The presence of the bacteria Propionibacterium acnes inside the pore
- The corneocytes, or skin cells, become more “sticky” and build up in the pore
- The release of chemicals in the pore that causes inflammation
Acne treatment as performed by licensed health care providers is aimed at reversing one or more of those factors. Sometimes it takes a combination of acne treatments to reverse more severe acne. There are many different options for treating acne, but you can get the full range of options if you see your healthcare provider.
How To Use Aloe Vera for Facial Skin Care
To use Aloe Vera, first wash and dry your face thoroughly then apply a thin layer of Aloe Vera gel to your face. It can actually be applied anywhere you have acne, like your back for example. Aloe Vera gel absorbs into the skin quickly and works best when allowed to dry in the open air, so don’t put any clothing over the affected areas until the gel has been absorbed thoroughly. If you use 100% pure Aloe Vera gel, you can reapply it as often as you like.
