Toss away all your commercial skincare products, and instead give your skin a chance to breathe natural.
Aloe vera comes as a skin saviour for most of us; thanks to its cooling and medicinal properties one can vouch for. The long succulent leaves of the aloe vera plant does all the magic and how! The primary constituent of the gel in the leaves is water, and is additionally packed with minerals, vitamins and other essential nutrients.
Nowadays, most commercial skincare products have aloe vera loaded in them. However, they may not be as useful or effective as the ones you prepare and use at home. Temperature's soaring and so is the need of keeping your skin hydrated.
