    hey, I have a very sensitive skin especially the cheeks area. can I use fresh aloe vera gel on my skin directly? same goes the question for lemon juice?

      hey, yes, you can definitely use the aloevera gel but you can’t use lemon juice as it is highly acidic but you can use tomato juice mixed with honey which is equally good and gentler than lemon juice. hope this helps :)
