Can I use Aloe Vera for skin problems?
Many people do. It is used, for example, in hot countries where it grows naturally to heal sunburn because of its anti-inflammatory properties.
Aloe Vera has also anti-fungal and anti-bacterial so it is a popular remedy for afflictions such as athletes foot.
It has also been reported that it accelerates the rate at which cells divide (50-100% faster than naturally occurs) and hence why many use it for cuts, wounds and other types of burns.
It should be noted that how well it works depends on the quality of the aloe vera. Even in its natural form if the plant is too immature it will not have much potency. And in its packaged form that very much depends on the brand.
