I have been breaking-out quite badly lately maybe from the air-conditioning or stress, or the new facial cream or not enough exfoliation. For whatever the reason, my skin is screaming in utmost rebellious anger. And to worsen the situation, I over-treated myself with spot treatment causing several burnt skin in the process. Huhuhu!
I am sure you have been in my situation that you wanted a cystic pimple to go away a soon as possible you keep reapplying and reapplying the benzoyl peroxide ointments like Panoxyl , Katialis etc. on the pimple to notice that a large patch of skin was burnt and removed. And sadly, it usually takes 1-2 weeks before it will actually heal.
But a colleague friend of mine mentioned to me that a friend of hers told her to use aloe vera in her pimple-treatment-burnt-skin situation. (Yes, we were in the same predicament but apparently mine is much-much worst, huhuhu!)
I did search for aloe vera plant in the neighbourhood market but to no avail. And I don’t know the Chinese name of Aloe Vera to ask Mandarin-speaking vendors.
But I was told by my friend that a repacked aloe vera gel can be found in some retail pharmacies like Unity.
I found this. This is the same one used by my friend.
After 3 days with this baby, my burnt skin was healed. Ok, it didn’t heal or helped my break-outs but it calmed my skin and speed up the healing of the burnt area. I am so amazed at the magical powers of this plant. This is definitely a miracle plant!
Aside from healing burnt skin, it can also be used for ezcema, falling hair, dietary supplements, fresh food preservatives, gingivitis and treatment of wounds. Recent researches are done for the possibility of treatment of diabetes, high cholesterol and cancer using aloe vera. Isn’t this plant just simply amazing! My respects to you, pointy gel-y green plant! (*Salute)
