The lose skin is a temporary feature. Apply moisturizers.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to the forum.

I can understand your concern for the lose XXXXXXX of the skin after alovera application.

I have diligently analyzed your query and noted your concern. Let me reassure you first that there are no long term side effect of application of alovera on face. In general alovera doesn't cause any ill effects and is safe for skin if applied only for 10 minutes. But many a times if it is kept for longer than 10 minutes then it could cause stretching of skin which later on could be visible as mild wrinkling and lose skin.

I suggest you to ask her to apply a mild fragrance free moisturizer for 2 to 3 times a day. Avoid direct sunlight for few days. Use a sunscreen in day time.

Ask her not to further apply the same and reassure her that the lose beds will subside in couple of days to weeks.

I hope this helps.

Hello,

Welcome back and thanks for your further follow up.

In my patients I suggest to use plane coconut oil over the affected area. It is the mildest and safest moisturizer for this kind of condition.

I additionally suggest to do sun protection.

I hope this helps.
