Facial care is especially important in the autumn and winter seasons, because sensitive skin needs double make-up of vitamins. Therefore, it is better to prepare nutritional mixtures on your own – facial masks from aloe have proved to be one of the best means to protect from the approaching colds, restore damaged parts of the epidermis and saturate tired cells with oxygen.
Many shop-top creams do not cope with their task, and sometimes cause allergic reactions: with a wrong selected product, there are red, inflamed spots, blackheads or black spots, everything itches and flakes, causing discomfort and pain. It is dangerous to experiment, because you can provoke skin dermatitis, and dreams of silky, tender skin will go to the past. Having crossed the thirty-year boundary, many girls cherish the hope that the miraculous properties of the creams will help to hold off youth and retain elasticity and radiance for many years. Do not forget that there are no miracles, and the result has long to be achieved.

- Bold type: grayish shade, deep, protruding pores, oily shine;
- Combined type: fatty areas on the forehead, nose, chin and at the same time dryness on the cheekbones or around the eyes. It occurs most often.
