Aloe Vera and Acne Prevention
Aloe Vera Gelly Can Protect the Skin and Promote Healing
Part 3: Forever Living Products Skin Care ProductsYour skin has an important job: it’s the barrier protecting you from bacteria, fungi, chemicals, and other skin irritants that might make you sick. To do this, your skin produces a type of oil called sebum. However, if skin irritations become excessive, the sebum oil builds up and acne pustules can occur.
Skin irritations are often difficult to identify, and can be essentially anything coming in contact with your skin. Thus, any facial lotions, moisturizers, cleansers, cosmetics, or shaving lotions must be gentle and non-irritating, especially for someone who has a tendency toward acne. For all patients who are acne prone, you should always wash your hands first, before touching your face. Sunscreens, if applied to the face or other acne-prone areas, should be pure and non-oily.
For my female patients who are acne prone, I recommend that the makeup they use contains no harsh chemicals or additives. Makeup should be applied with brushes or sponges made of clean non-irritating fibers. Makeup must be removed before going to sleep, to give the skin a chance to breathe, and the cleanser used to remove the makeup must not be greasy, oily, or leave a residue. After cleansing, a good toner should be applied to balance the skin, followed by a light-weight moisturizer to replenish and protect the skin.
For males who are acne prone, I recommend that shavers, whether electric or blades, be clean of any potential germs or other contaminants. Also, I suggest not applying after-shave directly to the face. Aloe vera gelly can be used to protect the skin from external irritants and promote healing, especially at night.
There is a large selection and variety of skin care products created by Forever Living Products which follow the above skin care recommendations of being gentle and non-irritating — these include makeup, brushes, cleansers, toners, moisturizers, aloe gelly, sunscreens, and soaps. The symptoms of acne can be noticeably reduced by using these products and recommendations in the prescribed manner.
