I have used many different acne creams and face washes over the years. Using aloe vera is the best acne treatment to help keep my acne under control. I start with a good oil-free facial cleanser and then an oil-free moisturizer. I usually apply the aloe vera after washing and before the moisturizer. The aloe vera is helping to heal some of my old acne scars, and it’s really great on existing pimples. I have a plant and just break off a small piece. The most important thing to remember when treating acne prone skin is to use oil-free products and cosmetics.
