Say Hello to Aloe!

Aloe Vera is a great natural skincare solution and with this changing weather and back to school/work stress, dry skin can be an issue, this is where Aloe Vera comes in very handy.

Aloe Vera is moisturising, nourishing, hydrating and penetrates deep into skin and cleanses it deeply as it is full of anti-oxidants. It’s anti-ageing, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties mean that it is an all-round skin saver! What more could you ask for?! Here are a couple of face masks you might like to try. Remember to patch test before you apply this all over your face to avoid any unwanted reactions!
