I notice that either for normal, dry or oily skin, the quantity of Aloe Vera is the same.
That means that Aloe Vera is all good for all skin.

I love Aloe Vera and I recommend to all my friends and to all my blog followers
Natural, like Aloe Vera

How long will the recipe last? And what could I add, if necessary, to preserve it?
