Aloe vera has been used in herbal medicine and beauty applications for simply ages, like forever. It is a magical plant that contains water, mineral and special little compounds. The compounds –like lectins, mannans and polysaccharides – are very beneficial to skin, which makes aloe vera an ideal ingredient in face packs. And because it’s easily mixed with lots of other beneficial ingredients, there are aloe vera face masks for all skin types.

You need:
