Ok, moving on to this awesome eye cream recipe….
Keep in mind that the eye area is extra delicate and prone to wrinkles and dark circles. The following ingredients are all great for specifically pampering the under eye area.
Cocoa butter– Cocoa Butter is the fat from the cacao bean and has the most amazing chocolaty aroma. It contains natural antioxidants and keeps skin super supple. Full of polyphenol antioxidants, this emollient adds a protective barrier to the skin to keep hydration in. It contains anti-oxidants like vitamin E, and is a medium/hard butter, making it useful for thickening products (source).
Coconut Oil – Coconut oil is known for its deeply penetrating and skin nourishing properties, it is anti-fungal in nature and contains very high levels of Vitamin E. It’s also high in lauric acid and helps form a protective barrier on the skin.
Rosehip Seed Oil – Contains vitamins A and E and essential fatty acids. It’s considered a dry oil since it absorbs so quickly. It helps soothe inflamed skin, reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles, and skin discoloration.
Frankincense – prevents scars, tames wrinkles, soothes inflammation and promotes skin regeneration. Frankincense has a beautiful aroma and also promotes skin protection and speedy healing.
