Aloe vera comes in many forms that can be applied to the skin, from a piece snapped off of a houseplant, to aloe vera gel, aloe vera spray, as well as aloe vera lotions and creams. For the best results when applying an aloe vera body lotion, use on slightly damp skin after taking a 10 to 15 minute warm shower.
The lightweight properties of aloe vera ensure that it is absorbed quickly into the skin, imparting a cooling sensation of cleanliness. These are some of the best aloe vera body lotions available at the drugstore.
