Hello doctor,

I have a combination skin type, and my T-zone becomes darker sometimes. I have started using aloe vera gel mixed with turmeric, lemon juice, and gram flour as a face pack, and I use it daily. Is it safe to use this pack daily? Actually, there is some tingling sensation while I apply it, and when I wash my face, some redness occurs on my face, but after some time, it fades away. Should I continue using it? It is showing some good results. Are there any serious side effects of aloe vera gel?



Welcome to

I read your query and understand your concern.

All these things are safe to use regularly, but as you have a burning sensation, it can be due to an allergy to any of the ingredients. So apply everything alone once, and then you will come to know which ingredient is causing you irritation. Once you come to know, either do not add that ingredient or, if you want to add, then decrease the quantity.

I hope you understand my point.

Thank you.
