Aloe vera a multipurpose skin treatment

aloe vera plant

Aloe vera is used in traditional medicine as a multipurpose skin treatment. In Ayurvedic medicine it is called kathalai, as are extracts from agave.

It is rich in antibacterial properties which make it very effective in treating acne, reducing redness, inflammation and itching. Aloe contains Saponins which kill acne causing bacteria. The acid unclogs pores, maintains the pH balance and eliminates zits. The astringent quality of aloe removes excess oil and prevents your skin from breaking out. Aloe also injects essential nutrients into the skin and helps in skin regeneration, thereby lightening acne scars and giving you glowing skin.

Not just acne, aloe can be used to get the makeup off your eyes without making it too dry. Plus you save your eyes from harsh chemicals too. All you have to do is, pour a few drops of aloe gel onto a cotton ball and wipe away.
