Overnight Acne Remedies With Aloe Vera Gel

BY SOMREETA MUKHERJEE

If you are suffering from acne, here are a few overnight remedies that you can opt for using aloe vera gel. Aloe vera gel has soothing properties that help treat acne and the redness that accompanies it.

Aloe vera gel is extremely effective in treating acne as it has anti-bacterial properties. It acts as a natural astringent that controls sebum secretion, cleanses pores and keeps your skin free from infections. Its anti-inflammatory properties help reduce acne and blemishes.

If you find essential oils suitable for your skin type, the best way to use aloe vera gel for acne is to mix a tbsp aloe vera gel with 2-3 drops of tea tree oil, lemon oil or lemongrass oil and apply on skin to get rid of blemishes. However, if you are not very comfortable using essential oils on skin, here are a few other remedies that you can try:

 

ALOE VERA AND VITAMIN E REMEDY

Mix the oil of one vitamin E capsule with a tbsp aloe vera gel. Apply this mixture on the affected area and leave it on overnight (in case you are not very comfortable with the idea of overnight masks, you may leave it on for one hour at least). Rinse thoroughly with plain water next morning. Vitamin E, combined with the goodness of aloe vera gel, make this face mask rich in anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that impart flawless skin and heal acne.

 

ALOE VERA GEL AND ACV REMEDY

Mix 1 tbsp aloe vera gel with ½ tsp ACV and ½ tsp water. Dip a cotton ball in the mixture and apply on affected areas. Leave on overnight for best results. ACV has malic acid that combines with aloe vera gel to remove bacteria, balance pH level of skin and exfoliate dead cells.

 

ALOE VERA GEL AND LEMON JUICE REMEDY

Just mix 1 tbsp aloe vera gel with ½ tsp lemon juice and apply on cleansed face. Leave it overnight and wash off with plain water the next morning. It is one of the easiest remedies to treat acne and acne scars effectively.

 

While ready-made aloe vera gel is available in the market, it is always better to go for freshly extracted aloe vera gel from the plant that perhaps grows in abundance in the green patch of your house. Have you ever tried using aloe vera gel for acne?
