When you reach a certain age, taking care of your skin is mandatory. If in your twenties, the ritual before going to bed means removing your makeup and washing your face, in your thirties the situation changes. Besides removing your makeup, you have to introduce in your before-bedtime-beauty-routine-ritual collagen booster moisturizers.
In your 30’s, day-by-day stress can be easily seen on your face and may affect the quality of your sleep. Not getting enough rest your eyes may look drained, puffy, and droopy. Well, age has also something to say!
Fortunately, there are many ways in getting rid of eye-related problems such as puffy eyes, dark circles and fine lines. Actually, I discovered a homemade intense moisturized especially designed for fine lines around the eyes and puffy eyes. It works wonders!
Of course, there are many eye creams on the market, but they contain many unsafe fixings, which inevitable can truly influence your skin. But this custom made eye cream contains only hydrating fixings to target drained and puffy eyes. It enough to use it once for you to fell in love with it!
If I stirred your curiosity, then grab the following ingredients…
- 1/4 cup of Shea Butter
- 1/4 cup of Organic Coconut Oil
- 8-10 drops of Frankincense Essential Oil
- 5-7 drops of Lavender Essential Oil
…and prepare the best eye cream EVER!
Using a double boiler, melt Shea butter and coconut oil together until liquid. Remove from heat and let cool for about 30 minutes. Drop in and stir Frankincense and Lavender essential oils. Wait for mix to partially solidify (you can even put it in the freezer for up to 20 minutes to speed the process along). Then whip with your hand mixer until you achieve a butter-like consistency (few minutes). Store in a 4 oz Mason Jar. This should keep for 6-12 months in your bathroom cupboard.
Optional: If you don’t have Shea butter, I’ve seen some other recipes that use Cocoa Butter. You could also add in Vitamin E oil or Sweet Almond Oil.
