Homemade creams for beautiful eyes

The contour of your eyes — the outer area — is often the first to show signs of aging or even smiling too much. The cold, dehydration, sun, and aging 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 homemade creams that can help you get beautiful eyes.

1. Aloe vera and grapeseed 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 together and let them set. This mixture will last you a few days if you apply it all over the contour of your eyes in a massaging motion before bed.
