10 Benefits of Using Fresh Aloe Vera on Your Face

Updated: Apr 21

Aloe vera is perhaps one of the most widely used herbal remedies for topical skin conditions. This is because the gel-like components of the plant are known to heal the skin from a variety of minor ailments.

Benefits

If you’re dealing with a chronic skin condition, it’s a good idea to check with your dermatologist before applying any products to your face.

1. Burns

For minor burns, apply aloe vera gel to the affected area up to three times daily. You may also need to protect the area with gauze.

2. Sunburn

While aloe vera helps soothe sunburn, it’s not an effective way to prevent sunburn, so make sure you wear sun protection every day!

3. Small abrasions

If you’ve scuffed up your chin or forehead, you can apply aloe vera to the area for quick relief from pain and burning sensations. Use three times per day.

4. Cuts

If you’re used to grabbing Neosporin for a minor cut, consider trying aloe vera instead. Its molecular structure helps heal wounds quickly and minimizes scarring by boosting collagen and fighting bacteria. Apply up to three times per day.

5. Dry skin

Aloe vera gel absorbs easily, making it ideal for oily skin. However, it can help treat dry skin, too. Consider swapping out your regular moisturizer for aloe after bathing to help seal moisture into your skin.

6. Frostbite

Frostbite is a serious condition that requires emergency medical treatment. While aloe vera gel has been used historically as a frostbite remedy, ask your doctor first before trying it.

7. Cold sores

Unlike canker sores, cold sores develop on the outside of your mouth. Aloe vera may help treat the herpes virus, which is also the underlying cause of cold sores. Apply a small amount of the gel to your cold sore twice daily until it goes away.

8. Eczema

The moisturizing effects of aloe can help alleviate dry, itchy skin associated with eczema. Aloe vera gel may also help alleviate seborrheic dermatitis. While this oily form of eczema is most often found in the scalp, it can also affect parts of your face and behind the ears, too.

9. Psoriasis

As with eczema, aloe vera may help alleviate inflammation and itchiness from psoriasis. For best results, apply aloe vera gel twice daily to the affected area of skin.

10. Inflammatory acne

Due to the anti-inflammatory effects of aloe vera, the gel may help treat inflammatory forms of acne, such as pustules and nodules. Apply the gel with a cotton swab directly to the pimple three times daily.

Here at Organic Allure we use aloe vera as one of our main ingredients when it comes in face care. We use the fresh leaves, separate the gel and juice from the leaves, blend, strain and use it in our ALOE GEL FACE WASH, CHARCOAL GEL CLEANSER, NOURISHING TONER, AND GRACE FACE MOISTURIZER.
