      Hi there Aloe Vera is very easy to grow and thrive even if you forget to water it. I usually use the gel neat (just cut some aloe off the plant directly) and rub the gel all over face and body. Initiallybit can be sticky but once it dries, your skin feels hydrated and totally smooth. It is not sticky at all. Leave the gel on for a few hours or until your next shower.
