Stress, lack of sleep, aging, and allergies, might contribute to the tired look of your eyes, wrinkles, and puffiness. Many people spend a small fortune on special commercial anti-aging eye creams, but many of them are too expensive, even though they fail to deliver the promised effects.
Therefore we suggest the following eye cream that you can make at home, and offers amazing effects:
- organic coconut oil
- frankincense essential oil
- vitamin E tablets
Coconut oil is the base for this moisturizing eye cream, and it easily penetrates the skin and is mostly hypoallergenic. Frankincense essential oil has been used for centuries, and it offers amazing benefits for the skin. It prevents stretch marks and scars, reverses the signs of aging, and soothes dry skin.
Vitamin E has potent antioxidant properties, keeps the skin smooth, repairs skin damage, and prevents premature aging and wrinkling.
In a glass bowl, add a tablespoon of coconut oil, stir a bit to warm it, and add two vitamin E capsules and two to three drops of frankincense oil. Mix well, and transfer the cream to a smaller container with a lid.
Store it in the fridge.
Dab a small amount of the eye cream under the eyes before bedtime, and leave it to act overnight. You can also use it in the morning, but make sure you wait for 10 minutes before you apply makeup.
According to Livestrong:
“The skin under the eyes is considerably thinner than skin elsewhere on the body. Puffiness and dark circles in this area can age your face notably. Proper care can keep this skin looking smooth and youthful by reducing the damage. Without turning to the latest in chemical-laden skincare technology, a natural approach is quite effective in keeping such a delicate area looking its best.”
“Wear sunglasses to protect the skin under your eyes from the harsh sun. Eye bags often are the result of lack of sleep, excessive alcohol consumption, and water retention. Stay hydrated to flush out toxins and salt, limit alcohol consumption and don’t skimp on the beauty sleep to avoid puffy eyes. “
Enjoy your soft and glowing skin!
