Acne. We all know it. We all know how badly it sucks. So, what causes acne in the first place? Mainly, excess oil production and the build-up of dead skin cells which accumulate in the hair follicles. This build-up creates an ideal environment for bacteria to thrive and if an obstructed pore becomes infected with the bacteria, inflammation follows.
So what’s an effective overnight cure for acne? The use of the “miracle plant”, aloe vera. There are two components of the plant we can use–the clear inner gel and the yellow gel just under the skin. For this treatment, we’ll use the former to take advantage of this miracle plant for our acne problems.
For effective overnight results to treat acne or pimple breakouts, you may try the following steps:
Dry Skin Treatment
First thing’s first: moisturize. There is a general opinion that oily skin equates acne, but dry skin can just as be a likely cause for breakouts. Nevertheless, it’s important to moisturize your skin whether you have dry or oily skin.
- Mix aloe vera with 1 teaspoon of honey, a few drops of rose water, 1 teaspoon of milk, and 1 pinch of turmeric.
- Blend until you have a paste.
- Apply and leave on for 20 minutes.
- Wash with lukewarm water.
- Take aloe vera gel, blended walnuts, and honey.
- Mix until you have a paste.
- Apply and leave on overnight.
- Wash with lukewarm water then pat dry.
How exactly does the aloe vera clear acne overnight? Well, aloe vera gel contains two hormones that provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties: auxin and gibberellins. So not only does aloe vera significantly reduce the size of inflamed bumps, it also helps in healing acne scars–promoting skin regeneration by lightening skin pigmentation to trim down the appearance of scars and blemishes usually caused by acne.
