The skin around the eyes is very delicate and as we age there you can see the traces, that years has left the most. That’s why it is good to start using an eye cream after the age of 21, so you can prevent wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes. Here I have collected the 3 best homemade eye cream recipes for beautiful and wrinkle-free look, that are natural, easy, not expensive to prepare and work.
1. DIY Eye Cream & Eye Makeup Remover
1/2 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil
Vitamin E capsules
Lavender essential oil
pin to poke hole in the capsules
Put the coconut oil in a small glass bowl to melt for 15 seconds in the microwave or in a small sauce pan, filled with water over low heat for a few minutes. Once it’s melted pour it into a lip balm container or a small jar.
If you use lip balm container, fill it almost till top with the melted coconut oil, add 2 Vitamin E capsules (use the pin to poke hole in the capsules) and 3-4 drops of lavender essential oil.
If you use a small jar, fill it about 3/4 with coconut oil, add 6 capsules of Vitamin E anf 6-7 drops of lavender essential oil.
Place the filled container in the refrigerator for about 30 – 40 minutes, until the mixture becomes solid and your homemade eye cream is ready for use!
Coconut oil has moisturizing, antibiotic and antioxidant action. Vitamin E is also a strong antioxidant, that prevents premature aging and promotes healing.
2. DIY Caffeine Eye Serum against puffy eyes and dark circles
1/2 cup ground coffee
Sweet almond oil
Put the 1/2 cup ground coffee in a jar and add just enough sweet almond oil to cover it. Close the jar tightly and let it stay for 4 or 5 days, so the coffe gets soaked in the sweet almond oil. After that strain the sweet almond oil in another jar, using the cheesecloth. Try to squeeze it as much as possible. Add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil and stir. Add it in a little bottle and your homemade caffeine eye serum is ready.
Apply it at night and you’ll wake up without puffy eyes and dark circles. Fresh and ready to start your day!
3. DIY Cucumber Eye Gel
120 ml aloe vera gel
1/2 large cucumber – washed, peeled, and cut into cubes
Blend the cucumber until liquid. Strain the juice out of it with a fine sieve and set it aside. Mix the aloe vera gel with 2 tablespoons of cucumber juice in a small bowl. Whisk them well together and pour the mixture into a bottle. Put the mixture for about 1 hour in the refrigerator to chill. Shake before usage. You use this mixture for maximum 3 months if it’s kept in the refrigerator. Use it before you go to bed.
