To many, wrinkles is a sign of old age. It's quite natural to think so because we look at beauty from the outside (most of the time). And in order to stay beautiful and look attractive, fine lines and wrinkles shouldn't make an appearance. However, the skin around and underneath the eyes is very thick, which is why, as age catches up with us, the skin around these areas tend to give up (not literally). This reason can become a concern and many of you might be rushing off to see your dermatologist, or to drugstores to purchase an eye cream.
Homemade Eye Creams
There are tons of anti wrinkle skin care products in market. However, some of these products can harm the skin, rather than helping them. With the fear of side effects from some harsh chemicals in these eye creams, many prefer to make their own natural eye cream. We have put together some beneficial anti aging cream recipes for you to try. As there are only natural ingredients used, the risk of damaging your skin reduces completely.
In a bowl, mash at least 3 ripe avocados with a fork. Next, add about 5―6 drops of almond oil in the bowl and mix everything properly. Make a smooth paste, and apply it directly over the wrinkles on the face. Let the paste settle in for 5―10 minutes, and then wash your face with lukewarm water. Pat your face dry; use the cream as often as you want.
Almond Oil-based Cream
In a small pan, add 2 tablespoons of water and 1 tablespoon lanolin. Heat it on low heat, and mix both ingredients properly. Now add 1½ tablespoon of sweet almond oil in the pan. Remove from heat, and add 1 teaspoon lecithin (in powder form). Keep stirring till you get a smooth paste. If the cream becomes too thick, add couple drops of water in it. Apply this natural eye cream around the eyes, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Wash your face with lukewarm water, and pat dry. Apply the cream as often as possible.
In a blender, add a small potato and 2 tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce. Blend everything perfectly till you get a smooth paste. Pour the cream in a bowl and apply it around your eyes. Place a damp cloth over your eyelids and rest for 15 minutes. Wash your face with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use this cream at least 3―4 times a week.
In a bowl, add 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil and honey, and ½ teaspoon lemon juice. Mix the ingredients properly till you get a smooth paste. Apply this lotion on your face and neck. Let it sit for 10―15 minutes and wash your face with lukewarm water. Pat your face dry.
Nowadays, the need to have wrinkle-free skin has become so essential that women (and men) are starting to purchase products as young as 25. Wrinkles or fine lines are natural and should come with age, and not stress. So instead of buying an eye cream, why not alter your lives for the better? Eat healthy, exercise, de-stress your work and home life, and live a wrinkle-free life for a longer time.
