Aloe Vera is perhaps one of the most widely used herbal remedies for topical skin conditions. This is because the gel-like components of the plant are known to heal the skin from a variety of minor ailments. In fact, you might have used aloe in the past for sunburn, minor cuts, or small abrasions. Despite its healing powers, you may be wondering if it’s safe for your face. The answer is yes.
“Aloe Vera has lots of uses,” said Dr Richa Sharma, a dermatologist in Tawcha Skin Clinic, Dwarka. “It contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C, and it is highly anti-inflammatory. It can help treat burns, acne, and dry skin.”
