The skin around the eyes is sensitive and needs special care. Instead of spending a small fortune on anti-aging creams, learn how to make your own anti-aging eye cream using 3 simple ingredients.
- Organic coconut oil
- Vitamin E capsules
- Frankincense essential oil
Coconut oil is an ideal base for this eye moisturizer. It’s mostly hypoallergenic (substitute olive or grapeseed oil if you have a nut allergy) and super moisturizing—it can penetrate the skin better than most other oils.
Vitamin E has many antioxidant properties. It helps to maintain the health of the skin and heals its damage. It keeps the skin soft and protects it from cracks. It also helps prevent premature aging and wrinkling of the skin.
- Add a tablespoon of coconut oil to a glass bowl. If the oil is solid, stir to dissolve. Then add 2 vitamin E capsules.
- Next, add 2-3 drops of frankincense essential oil to the coconut oil and vitamin E mixture.
Mix well and place the eye cream in a small container with a lid. You can put it in the fridge to make it solid. At night put a small amount under your eyes. This will help oils to penetrate under your skin overnight. You can also apply it in the morning, but make sure to let it absorb for 10 minutes before applying makeup. You can also use it to remove makeup.
