Homemade creams for beautiful eyes
The contour of your eyes, the outer area, is often the first to show signs of aging or even your frequent use of smiles. The cold, dehydration, the sun and age can cause the appearance of fine lines known as crow’s feet, and sometimes even cause the slight swelling of the tissue around that area. Below are a few cream options you can make at home to treat them.
1. Aloe vera and grape seed oil
Grape seeds? This may surprise you but grape seeds are the best kept secret in beautiful eyes. Grape seed oil is an essential oil that can be found at any market. Adding it to aloe vera makes a better remedy than those expensive creams sold at beauty stores.
To prepare the cream you only need a tablespoon of aloe vera and two drops of grape seed oil and a teaspoon of royal jelly. Mix them all together and let set. This mixture will last you a few days if you apply liberally to the contour of your eyes in a massaging motion before bed.
2. Olive oil and cocoa powder
This is another great way to hydrate the area around your eyes and treat crow’s feet. Cocoa powder can be found in any health food store, it’s cheap and it’s got many benefits. You’ll only need a tablespoon; melt it over warm heat and add a few drops of olive oil. This mixture should last you about three days. Massage into the area for the best benefits.
3. Yogurt and green tea
For days when you wake up with swollen eyes or bags under your eyes, try this remedy. This remedy is chock full of antioxidants and hydration. Prepare a cup of green tea with a half cup of water. Add two tablespoons of white yogurt and mix well. Place in the refrigerator to cool. Apply below the eyes to treat bags and swelling.
4. Cucumber and vaseline
These are two ingredients you’ll have in your home already: cucumbers and vaseline. They both act as hydrators to tone and replenish skin so it appears healthy. So how do you use them? Finely chop two cucumber slices. With the help of a fork, mash the cucumber into the vaseline until you get a fine paste. Place in the refrigerator for a few minutes to cool. Use in the mornings or before bed for about ten minutes you’ll notice a huge difference. Those baggy eyes will go away and your wrinkles will become less noticeable.
5. Rose water and yogurt
Rose water is easy to find. You’ll be able to get a good quality product from health stores that shouldn’t be too pricey. It’s generally used in various ways and has some wonderful benefits for your eye area. If you mix it with two tablespoons of yogurt, around three drops, and apply to your eyes you’ll help the blood flow in the area meaning your skin will become more elastic and toned.
