Can I use aloe vera on my face as I got acne? Or is there others home remedies I can use? Thanks for the answer.

Aloe vera has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. So, it is considered to be a good home remedy for treating acne. Just make sure you are not allergic to aloe vera as you might develop redness, rash or swelling. Stop using it immediately if that happens. For those who are not allergic, you can use it in various ways like a cleanser, toner, etc. Take its pulp and apply it directly on your pimples. You can also add 4-5 drops of lemon juice to 1 tablespoon of aloe vera juice or pulp and keep it on your face for 10 minutes. Wash off later with plain water. You can make a mask with a few drops of tea tree oil and 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel. Consult a dermatologist and he/she will guide you on the best treatment for your condition.
