5 Simple DIY On How To Use Aloe Vera Gel On Face To Treat Acne

1. Aloe Vera Spot Treatment

Aloe vera's anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties help reduce redness and swelling associated with acne. Its soothing nature also helps speed up the healing process of acne and promotes clearer skin.

How to Use:

Step 1: Choose a natural Aloe vera gel.

Step 2: Cleanse your face thoroughly with a gentle cleanser and pat dry.

Step 3: Apply a small amount of aloe vera gel directly onto the acne spots using clean fingertips.

Step 4: Leave the gel on overnight for maximum absorption.

Step 5: Rinse your face with lukewarm water in the morning and pat dry. Repeat until acne diminishes.

2. Aloe Vera and Honey Mask

Using aloe vera for acne with honey combines antibacterial properties and soothing properties. It helps to reduce inflammation, fight bacteria causing acne, and moisturise the skin, leaving it soft and supple.

How to Use:

Step 1: Mix 2 tablespoons of Aloe vera gel with 1 tablespoon of raw honey in a small bowl.

Step 2: Apply the mixture evenly to your cleansed face, avoiding the eye area.

Step 3: Allow the mask to dry for 15-20 minutes.

Step 5: Moisturise as usual. Repeat 2-3 times a week for best results.

3. Aloe Vera and Tea Tree Oil Toner

Tea tree oil is known for its antimicrobial properties, making it effective against acne-causing bacteria. When tea tree oil is combined with Aloe vera, it creates a gentle yet effective toner that helps to cleanse the skin, control oil production, and reduce acne breakouts without stripping the skin of its natural oils.

How to Use:

Step 1: Dilute 1 part Aloe vera gel with 2 parts water in a clean spray bottle.

Step 2: Add 3-4 drops of tea tree oil to the mixture and shake well.

Step 3: After cleansing your face, spray the toner onto a cotton pad.

Step 5: Allow the toner to air dry, then follow with your usual moisturiser and beauty products.

4. Aloe Vera Ice Cubes

Using aloe vera gel for skin helps soothe inflammation and reduce redness. The cold temperature helps reduce redness and swelling associated with acne.

Step 2: After cleansing your face, wrap one Aloe vera ice cube in a thin cloth or paper towel.

Step 3: Gently glide the ice cube over your face, focusing on acne-prone areas.

Step 4: Allow your skin to air dry.

Step 5: Follow with your usual skincare products

5. Aloe Vera and Cucumber Soothing Mask

Cucumber is naturally cooling and hydrating, making it ideal for soothing irritated and inflamed skin. When combined with Aloe vera, it creates a refreshing and calming mask that helps reduce redness, hydrate the skin, and promote healthy skin.
