 I purchase Aloe Vera juice a few days ago and used it on my face w/my cleanser and as a toner before moisturizing.  my break out cleared in 24hrs.  but i don't trust it.  nothing ever works for me long.  so im wondering if anyone has any long term results w/ using aloe for acne?

I was about to make a thread on this I found some Aloe Vera juice & after using it in my leave in conditioner recipe form kimmyatube. I figured well its supposed to be good for your skin & so i drank a cap full made a nasty face & then put some on my face. I had this huge pimple on my forehead & cheek for some reason (I'm stressed) & a few bumps right between my eyebrows I woke up this morning & they were gone I was amazed, if it works long term idk, but I just used it last night & my face looks good. I am going to purchase Mederma to get the spots off left behind by previous pimples & see how this works. I will continue to use it though & see what happens. I als applied some more this morning & my skin is doing well

so far its been 2 months and its still working.  it even works as a moisturizer, so im not regularly using a separate moisturizer.  i now have the aloe juice in a 3oz spray bottle and i added 2 or 3 drops of vitamin e and i spray it on 2or 3 times a day.

I take it you can dilute the gel with water and get a good spray too?

.hott.pink im sorry i never saw this post.  i dont find a need to put the gel in a spray. i just put it directly on my face.  i like the gel because it mixes well with other products, like hydrogen peroxide, and acne medications or whatever else i experiment with.

aloe along with exfoliating with baking soda cleared my regular acne but did nothing for the cystic acne even when i drink it.

I've been using aloe vera for 4 years now, and it is the bomb! Its really soothing for the face. I use it as a toner, and mixed with shea butter and glycerin for my skin. Love it!!!
