Hi Merina, thanks for your message. I understand, when you have sensitive skin, it is difficult to know exactly how your skin will react even to a simple and natural skincare remedy like Aloe Vera
The best way to tell how something will work for your skin is to do a skin test, by taking a small amount of whatever product or home remedy you'd like to use, and then applying it to your wrist, or the inside of your elbow.
Don't apply any new cream or product to your face, until after you've tested it on your wrist or elbow.
Depending on how sensitive your skin is, wait 24 or 48 hours to make sure you do not have a reaction. Some people wait even longer if they are especially sensitive or allergic.
Then, if you have no reaction, try applying your new skincare remedy or product to your face. I don't recommend leaving it on all night right way. Rather, try your new cream out during the daytime, so if your skin develops any kind of reaction you can wash it off.
Once you've successfully applied your new skincare remedy for several days in a row, and you're sure that your skin does OK with it, then it is likely safe to use at night.
Some skincare experts recommend that you don't use skincare creams and remedies while you are sleeping, in order to allow your skin to breathe and rejuvenate. Other experts say that some creams are better absorbed at night. The choice is yours, see which method works best for you! I hope this is helpful for your sensitive skin!
