Homemade Eye Cream

As most of you know, I'm all about using homemade and natural products. I've learned more than I wanted to about some ingredients that they put in creams and products that they sell in stores.

You need only TWO ingredients to make this fantastic eye cream and you will see so many benefits to it! It's also a lot less expensive than the creams available in the stores. Plus, you know what is in it!

Vitamin E is an essential part of skin care. It is an antioxidant (it protects the skin from UV light, pollution, drugs, and other free radicals that damage skin cells). It also plays a role in anti-aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamine E also reduces stretch marks and age spots. It's practically magical!

Find a small jar (about an ounce). Fill it with coconut oil and warm it in the microwave for a couple of seconds until it is liquid. Take three vitamin E capsules and poke a hole in them to release the liquid in them and pour into the melted coconut oil. Use a toothpick to stir the mixture together and place into the refrigerator until it is solid again!
