7 Ways to Get Rid of Pimples with the help of Aloe Vera

Aloe vera soothes and heals acne, making it a useful natural element. Seven ways to utilise aloe vera to get rid of pimples:

1. Aloe Vera Gel

Rub clean, dry pimple-prone skin with pure aloe vera gel.Let the gel penetrate the skin for 20–30 minutes to soothe and relieve irritation. Pat skin dry after lukewarm washing. Do this 1-2 times daily.

2. Tea Tree Oil and Aloe

Mix equal parts aloe vera gel and tea tree oil (diluted with a carrier).Apply the mixture on pimples with a cotton swab or clean hands. Tea tree oil inhibits acne-causing bacteria, while aloe vera soothes.

3. Honey-Aloe Mask

A nutritious mask using aloe vera gel and raw honey. Target pimples with the mask. Leave the mask on 15-20 minutes and rinse with warm water. Honey moisturises and fights bacteria; aloe vera heals.

4. Lemon-Juiced Aloe

Apply aloe vera gel with fresh lemon juice sparingly to sensitive skin. Apply the mixture on acne scars and pimples using a cotton ball or pad. Citric acid in lemon juice exfoliates dead skin while aloe vera moisturizes.

5. Aloe Ice Cubes

Make soothing aloe vera ice cubes by freezing gel in trays. Apply a clean cloth or paper towel-wrapped ice cube on pimples for a few minutes. Cold and aloe vera reduce inflammation and redness.

6. Aloe Vera Spot Treatment

Buy pure aloe vera gel or extract it from a leaf. Apply gel to pimples for spot treatment. Leave gel on overnight, rinse in morning. Repeat nightly until pimple improves.

7. Aloe-Oatmeal Scrub

Aloe vera gel and finely powdered oats exfoliate gently. Gently massage the scrub into damp skin in circles, targeting pimples. Pat skin dry after lukewarm washing. Use this scrub 1-2 times a week to prevent breakouts and clean pores.
