In a nutshell, Aloe Vera juice is the liquid that comes out of the Aloe Vera plant when cut or squeezed. For hundreds or maybe thousands of years it has been used medicinally as a soothing balm for burns, cuts and scrapes. But, does Aloe Vera juice work and should you consider using it? Read on ..

Today Aloe Vera juice is used for the same purposes, and also has many more uses.

I love Aloe Vera juice for sunburn treatment, and I also find it makes a great skin moisturizer to be used after shaving or on dry patches of skin.

Here are some words of wisdom from a female model I once talked to about her skin situations.

Did You Drink Your Aloe Vera Juice Today?

Aloe vera juice has more recently become very popular as a drink and for use internally. My interest as a female beauty model in the benefits has led me to do some of my own research about its use internally but unfortunately haven’t discovered anything very favorable.

What are the Benefits of Aloe Vera Juice?

My initial searches online yielded a whole host of site with rather outrageous claims about Aloe Vera juice drinks making you live long, preventing and even fighting cancers, kidney disease, heart disease, and much more.

Just do a search for Aloe Vera juice in any search engine and you will quickly see what I mean.

What Do Health Websites Say? Does Aloe Vera Juice Really Work?

I looked a little further however and eventually came to some trustworthy health sites with articles posted by doctors and other medical professionals about Aloe Vera.

I couldn’t find anyone referring to any studies linking to any of the claims I saw in the torrent of ads I read through. Apparently, aloe vera juice just hasn’t been tested that well for use internally.

Note of Caution

While its is more or less nontoxic, meaning it won’t kill you to drink it, drinking too much can apparently induce nausea. The only proven medical use has been as a laxative, as it apparently is a pretty strong purgative.

Strangely enough, I never once found it advertised as a laxative, but only as ways to live longer, boost your immune system, cure cancer, and all that other rubbish.

Do the Benefits of Aloe Vera Juice Outweigh the Taste?

So while I continue to use Aloe Vera daily externally, I’m not really sold on its use as a drink. Not only does it taste pretty bad, but it just seems like a risk no worth taking.

It could have all sorts of potential side effects I am not aware of, which isn’t worth it as I could not find any real proven benefit of the product except for as a laxative. There are plenty of other laxatives out there that have been rigorously tested, and I’d feel much safer using one of those.

What are the Skin Care Benefits of Aloe Vera?

A girl’s skin should be soft but firm… A simple fact of life but, if it isn’t, then Aloe Vera juice might (NOT) help you with your dream of having more beautiful and glowing skin for your next model photo shoot.

Start taking care of your skin now before it’s too late!!

Conclusion: My advice to you is:

If you are going to drink to your health or beauty with this Aloe Vera concoction make certain there is a bathroom nearby. Otherwise you could find yourself on the run (no pun intended). I hope this opened your eyes about Aloe Vera juice and whether or not you should consider it. If this was helpful to you, you’ll find lots more beauty tips for models on the site. Have a happy day!
