What about nuts; some people say they are too dry, but they have many beneficial oils. Which remedy is the best to get rid of phlegm and soothe your throat?
Everybody’s skin ages naturally. This is a slow and steady process starting in our early adult life. As we get older the production of collagen slows down and our skin loses its flexibility.

Collagen helps keep the skin soft and supple. Products such as the aloe vera gel can help reduce these signs of aging around the eyes other areas of our face. Applying the gel around the eyes will help to stimulate collagen production and therefore restore the suppleness of the skin.
