How often do we think about the health of our under-eye area?
The skin under the eyes is extremely sensitive and one of the first parts of our face to show signs of aging. It’s important to be proactive in keeping this skin in good shape and take certain steps that will prevent early degradation of the tissue. The oil made from the seed of a cactus plant, prickly pear seed oil, is incredible for this very use. That’s why it is a key ingredient in our Magic Eye Wand. The compounds within prickly pear seed oil seem almost made for use under the eye, here’s why:
Benefits of Prickly Pear Seed Oil:
-Contains betalains which are red plant pigments (other well-known plant pigments include: anthocyanins, carotenoids, and chlorophylls). These redder pigments are also found in beet root, goji berries, pomegranate, and much more. They are super antioxidants with powerful anti-aging effects on the skin.1
-Has amino acids which stimulate collagen production and promote cell turnover leading to vibrant, fresher looking skin.2
-Has the highest concentration of Vitamin E of ANY plant oil on the market, 150% more than argan oil. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and protects the skin against UV damage.3
-Naturally high in vitamin K which helps brighten hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and under-eye dark circles. Vitamin K also has powerful skin healing benefits and is great for reducing acne scars.4
