This Natural Eye Cream Recipe works well for moisturizing the skin around the eyes while providing anti aging benefits.
I have just about every part of the body covered as far as moisturizing creams go. From a moisturizing Whipped Body Butter with Tallow to a Deep Conditioning Hair Mask. You’ll notice most at home natural remedies found on this site are pretty straight forward to make. Most of them I find are even more effective then anything I have purchased in the store. I am happy to share them here with you. This one is enhanced with anti aging ingredients like Vitamin E and a bit of lavender oil. This works to keep the skin around the eyes not only moisturized but to help ward off signs of aging.
What You Will Need To Make This Natural Eye Cream Recipe
1/4 cup extra virgin raw coconut oil
20 drops Vitamin E Oil
4 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
Using a double boiler or a bowl over a sauce pan, melt the coconut oil just until it is in liquid form. Remove from heat.
Allow the oil to cool slightly but still in liquid form before adding the Vitamin E and Lavender Oil. Drop both into the coconut oil and mix well. Pour the solution into an awaiting cosmetic jar, mason or any air tight container to store. Today I am making gifts out of these so I am putting them in these cute gold cosmetic containers. I will leave a link below for you to check out.
They take about 30 min or so to fully set. Store in a cool dry place.
Vitamin E Benefits
Vitamin E is an incredible source for skincare and has been used in all sorts of cosmetic products for many years. Used on the skin Vitamin E is a great moisturizer that hydrates while allowing the skin to retain the moisture. This works to keep the skin healthy over time and aides in a youthful glow. Vitamin E helps to minimize dark spots, dots and sun spots on the skin surface. As an anti aging ingredient Vitamin E, works wonders to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. It overall softens the skin and evens helps to form a protective barrier from environmental stressors. This wonder oil is an antioxidant and when used for cosmetics a naturally sourced Vitamin E should only be used. This is the one I personally use Cliganic 100% Pure Vitamin E Oil.
Lavender Essential Oil Benefits
Many know that the Lavender Essential Oil promotes calmness and is a gentle oil for diffusing. However you might be surprised to learn that it also has many great benefits for the skin as well. Lavender Oil can aid in skin lightening since it reduces inflammation. It can reduce discoloration including dark spots on the skin surface. It has also been known to promote the reduction of wrinkles in the skin and also lessen the effects of acne. You can find the lavender oil I use here Handcraft 100% Pure Lavender Essential Oil 4 oz.
Coconut Oil Benefits
Raw Coconut Oil is truly a wonder oil. I personally use it for cooking as a healthier oil and for my skin. I even use it to wash my face and you can learn more about my personal Natural Skincare Routine here. When used as a base for creams coconut oil helps to reduce inflammation, moisturizes the skin and leaves it silky soft. It is great for people with skin conditions such as Eczema. It’s emollient properties help to repair the skin. The fatty acids found in coconut oil help to protect and nourish the skin. It even has antimicrobial properties which can kill bacteria on the skin. You can find my source for Raw Extra Virgin Coconut Oil here.
Apply eye cream to clean skin using your ring finger as the applicator. Your ring finger is the weakest and works perfectly for gentle application on delicate skin. Wipe over the hood of the eye and under, making sure not to get in the eye. Use after washing your face in the morning and at night.
