    Hydrating Moisturiser

    Divine India Aloe Vera Gel

    For those of you who think that applying a moisturiser is only for winters, well, you couldn’t be more wrong. Summer heat can dry up the skin pretty bad which means people with dry skin have flakes falling off while those having oily skin have an amped up production of sebum to make up for the dryness. This leads to acne breakouts that could be difficult to control. To tackle this problem, use a hydrating, non-oily moisturiser. Try the Divine India Aloe Vera Gel that comes loaded with nutrients such as vitamins A, C, E, B12 folic acid etc. and promises to moisturise the skin and also acts as a conditioner for hair. Priced at Rs 325, you can buy it here for just Rs 179
