The skin of the under eye area is thinner than other parts of the face and needs gentle care.
This DIY vitamin E coconut oil eye cream is very gentle and provides powerful anti-aging properties.
Coconut oil is rich in antioxidants, it softens the skin, moisturizes it and helps with cell renewal.
Antimicrobial properties from the fatty acids in coconut oil help maintain your skin healthy and clean.
This versatile oil can help reduce under eye bags, dark circles and wrinkles. It soothes eczema and psoriasis and has a light natural SPF.
Coconut oil is suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin and baby skin.
Vitamin E is a very powerful antioxidant used in many beauty products. It contains strong anti-aging, protecting, softening, moisturizing, nourishing and strengthening properties.
It improves skin elasticity, strengthens skin tissue, helps remove dark circles and bags under the eyes and helps prevent age spots.
Vitamin E also calms irritated skin and soothes eczema and psoriasis.
DIY vitamin E coconut oil eye cream
1/2 cup / 125 ml virgin coconut oil
1 tbsp vitamin E oil
If your coconut oil isn’t liquid, melt it au bain marie. Put it in a bowl (ideally made from glass, porcelain or stainless steel) inside of a pan with shimmering water. Let it melt on the lowest heat.
I like to use organic virgin coconut oil for this recipe as it contains the highest amount of nutrients.
Once the coconut oil has melted, remove the bowl from the heat and add the vitamin E oil.
It can either be from a bottle or you can pierce some Vitamin E capsules.
Just make sure it’s a natural, organic oil.
Pour the mixture into your container of choice. You can use a glass jar, a small tin or whatever works best for you.
Put your DIY vitamin E coconut oil eye cream in the fridge for an hour to solidify.
There is no need to keep the cream refrigerated afterwards.
Gently massage the cream into your eye area and repeat regularly.
