It is not by chance that the idiom “as sweet as honey” was coined. Honey is indeed very sweet and can enhance the flavor of a dessert by leaps and bounds. Besides its heavenly taste, it also has multiple health benefits. Honey has been known to be useful as a beauty ingredient since times immemorial and is easily available around the world, thanks to honeybees. Besides acting as a dark circles remover, here are some other benefits of honey for beautiful, healthy eyes you should add to your knowledge right away.
1. Reduces Dryness and Itchiness
When your eyes do not produce enough fluid for lubrication, it results in dryness, itching, and reddening of eyes besides impacting vision. Washing your eyes with a solution of honey and warm water every alternate day before sleeping can treat this condition.
2. Protects from Glaucoma
When the front portion of eye accumulates fluid, the state is called glaucoma. This impairs vision and can eventually lead to a permanent loss of eyesight. Using honey drops in eyes regularly decreases the chances of glaucoma by half.
