2. Cacao butter and olive oil eye cream
The skin around our eyes is very thin and doesn’t have many sebaceous glands. So, in order to prevent it from wrinkling ahead of its time, we need to provide it with the nutrients that can keep it hydrated.
This cream concentrates fatty acids, vitamin E and amino acids that nurture tissue on a deeper level. Use it if you want to keep this area firm and elastic.
- 2 tbsp. of cacao butter
- 2 tbsp. of olive oil
- Firstly, put the cacao butter in a heat-resistant bowl and heat it up on a double boiler
- Then, when it’s melted, reduce to low-heat and add the olive oil
- Finally, mix the ingredients well and leave to cool at room temperature
- Once the cream has solidified, take a small amount using your fingertips and then massage it into the desired area
- Use every night before sleeping
3. Yogurt and green tea eye cream
The lactic acid that’s found in yogurt keeps skin pH levels balanced. At the same time, it reduces the appearance of marks or spots and prevents tissue from losing its elasticity too soon.
In this recipe, we’ve heightened its properties by adding the antioxidant powers of green tea, which is a healthy ingredient that keeps skin young and radiant.
- ¼ c. of natural yogurt
- 3 tbsp. of brewed green tea
- Firstly, put the natural yogurt in a glass jar and mix it together with the green tea
- After that, leave it in the fridge and use it when it’s thoroughly chilled
- Firstly, rub the cream on the entire area surrounding the eyes
- Then, leave it on for 20 minutes and after, remove with a wet cloth
- Finally, store the remainder in the fridge and use it every night
4. Potato and petroleum jelly eye cream
The refreshing power of potato juice unites with the healthy fats of petroleum jelly to provide us with an anti-inflammatory and moisturizing eye cream.
Applying this cream reduces the appearance of bags, two imperfections that age the area around our eyes.
- 3 tbsp. of grated potato
- 1 tbsp. of petroleum jelly
- Put the ingredients into a bowl and mix until a thick paste forms
- Firstly, massage the cream onto the desired area

Consult your dermatologist before using eye creams
If you have any doubts about how to properly care for your skin, including the eye area, consult your dermatologist. The professional will tell you what’s most appropriate, depending on the needs of your skin type.
Keep in mind that a remedy that may be good for one person may not be good for another because they have different skin type and characteristics. Therefore, you must be very careful before applying any home remedy and especially in an area as delicate as the eye.It might interest you...
