Does applying Aloe Vera from the actual plant (natural - not processed or anything, straight from the plant) to affected area of acne cure it/help remove it?

Feedback thanks.

don't see why it would-- what do you think it would do besides moisturize it?

He's right. I have an aloe vera plant, it is a great moisturiser ideal for use on sunburn or slight skin irritation (nettle stings etc.), wouldn't rely on it to help acne though.

i would think it would heal pimples after they've gotten all nasty, but it's not going to stop the underlying issue causing acne.

I dont believe so but i have seen aloe vera touted for it along with the 101 other things it is meant to "cure"
