QUICK READ – Aloe Vera – The must have for everyone’s beach bag, bathroom and medical chest. Don’t leave home without it!

PIC1 5Summer is now at it’s pinnacle. The constant exposure to sun, pollution and dirt during the warmer summer months can make the skin dry, rough and itchy. Not to mention insect bites, heat rash and sunburn. Aloe vera lotion is the perfect solution to all your skin ailments, and can play a pivotal role in helping to maintain the health of your skin – hydrating, moisturising, soothing, repairing and rejuvenating. It’s also a strong antioxidant to protect against environmental factors and premature ageing.

Aloe vera is not just for summer either! The winter months can also have a devastating effect on the skin, making it look dull and lifeless. Heating, dry air, layers of clothing, and feet hidden away in socks and boots can result in dry skin, blocked pores, exasperated skin conditions, and unsightly feet. The ultra hydrating, soothing effects of aloe vera lotion can help to dispel flaky dry skin, breakouts and irritation, and restore the skin’s health.
