Thank you for the input! When I mean natural aloe I mean straight from an aloe plant. This was recommended by a family member who is a doctor. I've never had adverse reactions to pure aloe before on my face. I think it is a combination of my prior tweezing and sensitive skin. Is there anything I can do to calm the hyperpigmentation and overall skin reaction?
Also, I use bare minerals makeup and a clean applicator the morning after. Is this okay? I've tried without too and it doesn't seem to make a difference
Look, you have to experiment a bit before you find what works for you. No one questioned how natural the aloe is, the fact that is natural or that it never happened to bother you before means nothing - it might as well be what's causing your issues now. You won't ever know if you don't experiment and stop using it for a while.
My electrologist had warned me against using water on my chin before the next day, but I followed Michael Bono's advice and used as normal to wash my face, and nothing happened. I also use makeup right on the next day for aesthetic reasons (I can't stand the discoloration on my upper lip) and have had no issues. In fact, because I live in a sunny country and can't possibly go out without anything on my face after treatment (the sun is still out even on 8pm that I usually finish my treatment), we use a CC cream on my face that contains SPF and some colour to hide the redness - I go back home with a bus because I don't have a car, and there's no way I'll go out without some coverage. It's especially formulated for rosacea skin and has never bothered me or gave me a bad skin reaction, even after putting it on right after. To someone else, it could be their downfall.
Hence, my original argument: experiment and find out what works for you.
