Aloe Vera - The botanical that needs so little but gives so much. A spiky succulent, aloe vera is one of those wonder-plants that has so many healing properties it has spawned a whole industry of aloe-based health and beauty products. As well as compounds like vitamins C and E that brighten and plump the skin, the potent, clear gel inside the leaves has anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial components, all of which help heal wounds and soothe irritated and sunburned skin.The power of aloe is not a recent discovery: Ancient Egyptians used the preservative gel as an embalming fluid, whilst their ruler, Cleopatra, applied it to her famously-beautiful face to keep her skin soft and supple. To this day, aloe vera remains a popular ingredient in burn relief products but is also, increasingly, added to soaps, lotions, shampoos, conditioners, aftershaves and even juice drinks.

imples are cute, but not on your thighs, tush, tummy or arms. The ultimate bête noir, cellulite affects nearly 90% of all women. While diet, exercise and genetics play an important part in the severity of affliction, it is not a weight issue. Rather it is the ultimate equaliser refusing to distinguish between slim or sizeable, fit or flabby, young or old. Striking when enlarged pockets of fat push through weakened connective tissue, cellulite causes a dimpled, orange peel-like appearance on the skin. More likely to present when connective tissues are weakened due to excess fat deposits, poor muscle tone and fluctuating hormones, amongst other reasons, cellulite cannot be cured. Mercifully though, there are myriad effective methods to diminish the dimple and embrace super smooth skin. By Kyle Fulton
