10 DIY Skin Care Remedies

  

5. Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is the mother of all healing plants. You can purchase Aloe Vera gel from health food stores relatively cheaply, but growing your own is cheaper and far more effective. Cut one of the leaves from an Aloe Vera plant, and extract the clear, soothing gel from inside.

Apply it directly to burns, cuts, insect bites and cracked skin to heal and rejuvenate the area. You can also apply Aloe Vera gel to your face. Leave it on for 15 minutes for a deep moisturizing face mask.
