Aloe Vera a healing plant

I have an aloe vera plant in my room and it's been outgrowing the pot. It is not quite as bad as the one in this picture but you get the idea. Some of the leaves have even fallen off. I was curious how I could use the leaves before they shrivel up.

Aloe Vera  also known as the true or medicinal aloe, is a species of succulent plant in the genus Aloe that is believed to have originated in the Sudan.

Apparently this plant is very beneficial for your skin.

To use the plant for skin care you simply cut the leaves and use the gel to cover your skin.
Any affected area on the skin can be healed by the gel.
Sunburns and rashes...even helps with acne!
Aloe vera leaves contain a range of biologically active compounds, the best-studied being acetylated mannans, polymannans, anthraquinone C-glycosides, anthrones and anthraquinones, and various lectins
