Yes: Aloe vera gel is soothing and healing to the skin, whether you have acne or not. See http://www.Naturalnews.Com/031687_aloe_vera_skin_care.Html.

Yes: It is very soothing. However, be sure to dilute it - the plant form is concentrated.

Probably not: Your best friend is topical benzoyl peroxide 5% 2x/day. If you're not clear in two weeks, get with your personal physician for some prescription rx that's right for you.
