How to make your own homemade eye cream

To prepare your homemade under eye cream, boil some water in a medium saucepan and add coconut oil, primrose oil and vitamin E oil in it. Mix the oils for some time until they are completely blended.  Now add lavender oil to it for fragrance. You can keep the mixture in the refrigerator for a few minutes. Once it gets firm, you can place it in a jar and your cream is then ready for application. Mix the oils well, but make sure the mixture stays in liquid form. Cool it down to room temperature. Apply the cream every night for best results.


Looking beautiful was never so easy with so many skin-friendly products being sold in the market. But, with this home remedy, it will be even easier for you to escape dark circles, wrinkles and other common ageing-related skin issues.
