When it comes to skincare, few natural ingredients are as good as aloe vera. Full of goodness, it offers a simple solution to disguising blemishes and improving the appearance of your skin.

To make this aloe vera face mask for blemishesall you need to do is cut a leaf off the plant and take out all of the pulp, which has a slimy consistency that it is very easy to work with. If it is too thick, you can use a bit of mineral water to make the pulp a little more watery.

We recommend applying it to the blemished areas three times a week.
