How to Use Aloe Vera to Whiten Skin
There are a lot of ways to use Aloe Vera to whiten your skin. Here are some of them:

Mix equal amounts of Aloe Vera, honey and milk, put this on your skin and leave it for 10-15 minutes before rinsing. This will make your skin not only whither but deeply hydrated too.
4. Aloe + Papaya
