Aloe Vera Juice
Aloe vera is the most common and easily found plants in India. From skin to hair, the benefits of aloe vera are plenty. Drinking aloe vera juice is good for your skin and your health.
1-2 leaves of aloe vera
Turmeric powder, optional
Cut a tentacle straight from the plant and scoop the juice out of it. Since aloe vera is thick in consistency, you can dilute it in water. You can also add a pinch of turmeric powder to this juice. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties and will give your skin a natural glow.

1-2 medium-sized carrots, grated
1 piece ginger
2 tablespoons honey
Add grated carrots, ginger and water to the blender. Top it with honey and drink up.
