Aloe Vera with honey

Aloe Vera Mask with sugar and milk
This is the perfect anti-acne combination that not only fights acne, but also illuminates, hydrates and soothes the most reactive skin. Sugar contains glycolic acid, which promotes cell renewal. It also acts as a moisturizer to block moisture. Milk helps to tighten and soothe the skin.
