Face-Plant Into Aloe Vera It's known for taking the sting out of sunburns, but the gel that oozes from this plant can also make your acne cream more effective. In a study, those who applied aloe vera after applying a retinoid prescribed for acne experienced a 90 percent reduction in acne, compared to a 65 percent reduction in those who used the retinoid alone. If you'd rather have 10 percent of your acne, compared to 35 percent (this is not a trick question), slap on some aloe vera 10 to 15 minutes after applying your retinoid.
