Raw aloe vera has been used for skin benefits for hundreds of years. Now it is widely found in several formulated products. Let’s discuss the benefits of aloe vera based eye care products.
Aloe vera is a succulent with a rich composition of antioxidants, enzymes, minerals, vitamins and amino acids. It is famous for its soothing and moisturizing as well as skin healing properties. But using raw aloe vera is quite a hustle, and it can’t be stored for a longer time. That’s why formulated products are perfect for daily use. When aloe vera based eye products are used, they help with:
- Reducing the puffiness swelling
- Moisturizing dry skin
- Relieve irritation
- Treat sunburn
- Reduce dark circles
- Soothes tired eyes
- Cooling and calming effect on the skin around the eyes
- Slow down the ageing symptoms
Most of the issues related to eyes are either dark circles or fine lines. So the hydrating and antioxidant-rich composition of aloe vera hydrates the dry skin and fights off damaging free radicals. Many of these benefits are scientifically proven. However, it is advised not to put aloe vera directly into your eyes as it can cause irritation and burning. Whichever product you use, apply it on your eyelids and the area under the eyes.
