Ways To Use Aloe Vera To Treat Acne And Scars

Acne and acne scars are one of the major skin problems that we all face most often. Acne and scars make the skin appear dull. The skin also looks blemished because of the scars.

Acne is caused when the skin pores get blocked. This gives a favourable condition to the bacteria to live and thrive on the skin, which eventually makes the skin look worse.

The reasons behind several acne breakouts could be hormonal imbalances, poor diet, dehydration, body heat and an improper skin care. There are many natural remedies that can treat acne. However, aloe vera tops the list of the ingredients that can cure acne.

Aloe vera possesses antibacterial and healing abilities that can reduce the presence of acne. Its natural astringent quality keeps the pores clean, giving less scope for the pimples and acne to develop.
