I do spend a great deal on bath and body goods, but one of my historical favourites is actually one in the cheapest and simple to get their hands on products in the marketplace, Holland & Barratt Aloe Vera Gel. This gel is 99.9% pure natural aloe vera, and is also as natural as you can get until you take your gel completely from the plant!
This gel costs £3.55 for 100ml but is now on offer for £2.55. It is suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Some with the main uses I personally have for natural aloe-vera gel are:
1. As a toner
2. Treatment for eczema
3. Treatment for sunburn
4. Treatment for prickly heat
5. Curl definer
6. Acne / Acne scar treatment
7. Makeup primer
8. On top of moisturiser to 'lock in' the product
I'm no science expert, and I haven't searched into how this system works excessive. What I've gathered is that Aloe Vera Gel is incredibly similar in genetic makeup to human skin (gross!). But this is why why it is so effective in healing any skin complaints.
I utilize gel every day and evening in between cleansing and moisturising. I apply a generous blob throughout my face, neck and chest. When the moisture from your gel dries, your epidermis will feel verrrry tight! So you'll want to moisturise after, although you may have oily skin!
I've recently began to suffer from adult acne, this also gel is a blessing. 9 times from 10, it'll stop a spot forming in it's tracks. If you've already got the area, a blob directly covering it, should reduce it instantly. It'll reduce it to the point where it's visible, but flat, enough to pay it with makeup basically!
It's also great (but admittedly slow working) with healing scars from older spots. You won't see results straight away like you would by incorporating harsher peel type products, but if you keep this treatment up, you will notice the difference more than a month or so.
Unlike acne skin care treatments in general, Aloe Vera is additionally good as a possible anti-ageing product, then when I use this, I don't worry about premature ageing.
The reason I love this one of the most, and the good reason that I tried it in my face in the first place is because of a hypersensitive reaction I had for the acne treatment Benzyl Peroxide (BP). I'd been using BP approximately a week and although drying had occurred, I was loving how fast it dry out my blemishes! Then all of a sudden, I had the worse eczema like rash across my neck. It was so painful, hot and itchy! I tried the usual eczema creams purchased through the chemist however they really stung when applied and didn't help in any way. Hay fever tablets helped a great deal, but didn't provide any soothing qualities.
It was just when I remembered how Aloe Vera Gel helped my sunburn and prickly heat that I thought to try it on my neck. It helped immediately plus it two days I was totally healed with no peeling or drying! I'd usually expect crazy peeling / drying after having a reaction prefer that!
So I researched it a lttle bit online and discovered that a whole lot of people recommend aloe being an acne treatment. Since I wasn't going back to BP I thought I'd give it a try. I was at a bit of a loss as to what to try next since anything too harsh appeared to be a no-no.
So I've been using the treatment twice daily for the last month and still have definitely seen a marked improvement. Unfortunately new spots do form, as this is hormonal acne I'm working with, and there is not a whole lot I can do without taking prescription medications (which I'm not prepared to do). However, the aloe does manage to stop the spots in their tracks for one of the most part, and any that do creep up, it heals a lot quicker than every other product. It also takes every one of the redness away almost immediately.
Aloe alone isn't answer to my skin problems, however it definitely is one of the main contenders! I'd highly recommend this product to anyone with the same / similar skin issues as me!
