Aloe Vera acts as a great moisturizer for skin. The fact that it is so light weight makes it perfect to use as a moisturizer for people with oily/combination skin. It works wonders during those hot and humid summer days when you do not want to lather your skin with heavy moisturizers.

Apply the mixture to your hair, massaging well on the scalp and concentrating the mixture on the ends more as that is the portion which is more prone to dryness and frizziness.
Toning is neglected a lot in skin care but it is really essential to maintain the ph balance of the skin and to remove the left out dirt after cleansing. Aloe Vera’s astringent properties makes it all the more perfect to be used as a toner. In a spray bottle add rose water and Aloe Vera gel. Make sure the Aloe Vera gel added is not more than two tablespoon. Mix it well before spritzing it on to your face every time.

Aloe Vera being one of the most versatile plants goes really well with all sorts of face masks. In a container add turmeric, aloe vera gel and few drops of lemon. Apply it on your face and let it sit for 15-20 minutes and cleanse with water post that.
