The Best Aloe Vera Face Masks

Soothe and condition with these calming face masks

Aloe Vera is a name you’ve likely heard throughout your entire life. As a child, you put it on your sunburned skin to soothe after a long day at the beach (casual reminder: wear your SPF), and these same calming and moisturizing properties work in your adult skincare routine. Seriously, you don’t know cool, calm, and collected skin until you’ve tried an Aloe Vera face mask. Made from the plant of the same name, this gooey green gel has been used throughout history for its healing properties. It’s been known to mend everything from dryness and flakiness to breakouts and burns, and it’s known to be effective on nearly all skin types without the risk of irritation. You can get your most soothed skin (with a side of self-care) after you’ve tried these top Aloe Vera masks on MIRA BEAUTY.
