    Abstract
    BACKGROUND:

    No studies have yet been undertaken to determine the effect of aloe gel on the clinical signs and biochemical changes of aging skin.

    OBJECTIVE:
    We wanted to determine whether dietary aloe vera gel has anti-aging properties on the skin.

    But how does one take aloe vera? It is so bitter - gak!

    If topical application of various substances, harmful as well as helpful, results in their penetration through the skin, then why not just apply the aloe vera gel to the skin? It seems to me that regular application of aloe to the skin might be effective.

    I agree, pure aloe vera (not bottled but natural one) tastes horrible, that's why i usually mix it with some fruit juice. I can't say if it improves facial wrinkles or not as I don't have them) But i drink aloe vera to treat acid reflux, and it is also used for other digestive problems such as ulcers, constipation, irritable and inflammatory bowel disease. (here's the article about aloe vera juice and diabetes and about some other benefits of aloe drink) I also tried to use aloe vera gel externally for my acne, but it didn't work for me unfortunately.

    Krusty, here are some suggestions to treat acne. A lot of people report improvement when they eliminate dairy, or at least milk. http://www.hawkeshealth.net/communit...ad.php?t=10876

    I got a pretty bad sunburn while in FL. For treatment I used a hemp lotion and a neem & aloe gel. The burn went away and there was no peeling. I don't know if it was purely the aloe & neem gel that helped, or if the hemp lotion, which is supposed to reduce inflammation, helped but the results were impressive.
    I recently began drinking aloe gel to see if it would help with my celiac related inflammation. I'll definitely keep it up now.

    I may have posted this before. I spilt boiling water over my bare foot a few years ago. I immediately applied fresh aloe vera, them kept reapplying every ten minutes for a while.

    Next day, it wasn't even faintly pink. No blister, nothing. Miracle plant!

    My aloe plant is living but not thriving. It doesn't really like the cold weather in Big Bear, and our house stays pretty cool most of the year.

    I'd take you up on the offer, if possible, Maurya!

    I would be glad to send some, but it probably would lose its freshness and effectiveness. I have no idea how to juice the leaves.

    My problem with plants is that I tend to fuss over them. Regular watering with a bit of peroxide in the water to bring oxygen to the roots. I mist them and play music to them. I do this to aloes and they die. One year one of my aloes fell off the porch and got lost in the tall grass. I finally found it in September. It hadn't been watered or anything for nearly six months. It was lush and huge. My lesson was that aloes thrive on neglect.

    Unknown to many, most houseplants thrive on benign neglect.
