Homemade eye cream recipes

If you’re ready to try your hand at homemade eye cream, consider this recipe from Renee who says it helps brighten under-eye skin:

Mix all the ingredients together and apply morning and night.

  • 1 tsp. vitamin E oil
  • 1 tsp. lavender essential oil
  • 1 tsp. arnica essential oil
  • 1 tsp. vitamin K

Caution: While essential oils may last up to 3 years, it’s best to make a fresh batch each week to avoid contaminants and bacteria growth. Immediately discard if irritation occurs.

Make your own anti-puffiness under-eye pads:

  1. Boil 2 cups water.
  2. Add 2 green tea bags in the water and leave to cool.
  3. Soak cotton rounds in solution.

3 tools to enhance effectiveness

Now that you know which ingredients may help make a difference in the appearance of your under eyes, you might be wondering how to apply them for the maximum benefit. You have a few options:

Your fingers

The simplest application tool is right at your fingertips…literally.

“If you’re using your fingers, I recommend using your middle fingers to pat from the inner corner to the outer corner,” Renee says.

Experts often recommend your middle or fourth finger because you have less control over the pressure, meaning you can be more gentle with this sensitive area.
