Natural Under Eye Cream That Reduces Fine Lines And Dark Circles
For this cream you will need the following ingredients:
- 60 ml green tea
- ¼ tbsp of citric acid
- ¼ teaspoon of vitamin E
- 3 teaspoons of rosehip seed oil
- 1 drop of essential oil of carrot seed
- 3 teaspoons of almond oil
- 1 teaspoon of wax
- 3 drops of essential oil of lavender
Cook the green tea. Then, mix the almond oil, vitamin E, rosehip oil, and wax in a single bowl and heat up on steam. In the second bowl, add the green tea and citric acid and cook it on the steam as well. Heat the mixtures equally until the wax melts and until they reach the same temperature and then sprinkle the tea in the oil mixture. Afterward, mix with a hand blender until the oil stops separating from the green tea mixture, which will last from 30 minutes to one hour. Check every ten minutes if the oil has stopped separating from the bottom of the container. At the very end when you already made the cream, add the essential oils. Lastly, pour the cream into small jars with a lid. Apply small amounts of cream every day with a slight tapping into the eye area.
