Clear skin not only looks healthy but also beautiful but unfortunately not all are blessed with clear skin. Bumps, acne, enlarged pores, blackheads etc. can make your skin look congested and dull. There are a lot of skin clearing gels in the market but they contain a lot of toxic ingredients. Ever thought of making your own skin clearing gel? Below is a recipe you need to try which is all-natural and super effective:
Aloe vera gel- Aloe vera gel hydrates skin, has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. It keeps pores unclogged and shrunk.
Sweet orange essential oil- Has anti-acne, anti-marks and skin brightening benefits.

Things you need-
- 2-3 tablespoons aloe vera gel
- 5 drops sweet orange essential oil or tea tree essential oil
Directions- In a bowl, add aloe vera gel.
Add in sweet orange essential oil and whip using a fork or spoon until creamy or turbid. If you are using commercial ale vera gel, this would work because it contains emulsifying agents but if you are using fresh aloe, you need to blend.
Apply a peanut sized amount on cleansed skin before bedtime and before using a moisturizer/night cream.
**Caution: Patch test before using.
