Summer season is here, and so is the season of skin problems.

People with oily skin have a really tough time during summers. If you are someone who has tried every product available for oily skin in the market and have not gotten the results, I urge you to try this soothing home remedy – Aloe Vera.

Aloe Vera is a magical home remedy for oily skin type. If you are frustrated with the usual occurrence of acne, breakouts, blackheads, or whiteheads, you might love the recipes mentioned in this post.

Aloe Vera helps to keep skin healthy and heals damaged skin with its amazing healing properties. The best part is – it can be used by people of all skin types.

Although Aloe vera is beneficial for every skin type, in this post, we will look at some of the ways to use aloe vera gel for oily face. But before we share the different ways to use aloe vera for oily skin, let’s look at the benefits of aloe vera gel for oily skin.

Why Is Aloe Vera Good For Oily Skin?

  • Aloe Vera is a natural astringent. It improves the appearance of the skin by minimizing pores and removes excess oil from your face.
  • The antibacterial properties of Aloe Vera help to fight bacteria that may cause acne and breakouts.
  • The soothing and cooling properties of Aloe Vera help in rejuvenating the dull and oily skin.
  • Aloe Vera is very hydrating and keeps the skin moisturized without making it too oily.
  • Due to its anti-inflammatory properties, Aloe Vera helps to treat acne and heals the scars left by acne and pimples.

We can conclude that aloe vera is good for oily, acne-prone skin.

Which Is The Best Aloe Vera Gel For Oily Skin?

The market is flooded with Aloe Vera gels of various brands. The main thing to remember while buying Aloe Vera gel from the market is that it should be organic and free of any color and fragrance.

You can try this soothing aloe gel by Nature Republic. It is approved by CCOF (California certified organic farmers) which has real 90% of the aloe.

If you have an Aloe Vera plant at home, all the better. Follow these steps to prepare Aloe Vera gel at home –

  • Cut off one of the outer leaves from the base of the plant.
  • Wash it well, removing any dirt, and then stand it upright in a cup or bowl for 10–15 minutes.
  • Peel the leaf. You will be able to see the natural Aloe Vera inside.
  • Using a spoon, scoop it into your blender. Be sure to not include any pieces from the Aloe Vera skin.
  • Blend the gel until it’s frothy and liquefied, which should only take a few seconds. Your Aloe Vera gel is now ready to use.
  • If you want to store the Aloe Vera gel for more than a week, add preservatives like Vitamin C and Vitamin E.
