This homemade anti aging eye cream is a super simple solution to those tired mom eyes. It’s almost Valentine’s Day and you can make something nice for yourself to make your skin feel better. Are people saying you look tired, people have been telling me I looked tired. I decided to take control and make my own eye cream.
Yes I have tired mom eyes Here are my Reasons…
In the past 6 years I have given birth to two wonderful boys. You all know the glorious sleep and rest you get in the first few years of a child’s life. In addition to that our boys have thrown a few curve balls our way. The added stress of raising one boy with severe food allergies and another with Down syndrome may have added to my tired eyes.
I turned 40 this year. That does not make me old it also does not make me young. My skin is 40 years old and it is tending to show it’s age, especially under the eyes.
I am not a stay at home mom and I am not a working mom. I am both. When you get to be both you get to have the stress of both work and homemaking. I love that I get to be both, but it may have something to do with my tired mom eyes.
Let’s Help those TIred mom eyes
All you are going to need to make this eye cream is vitamin E oil, coconut oil and small container to keep in your night stand. Dab on a little every and morning if you want with your ring finger. Use your ring finger because it gives the least amount of pressure on the tender skin around your eyes.
The vitamin E is a strong anti-oxidant that can help fight the signs of aging.
The coconut oil is antibacterial and antifungal and is a great moisturizer.
The added lavender can help you sleep.
Here’s the Recipe
- 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil, melted
- ¼ teaspoon of vitamin E oil
- 1-2 drops of lavender essential oil, optional
Combine all ingredients and mix thoroughly and cool to harden. I found a used up container of night cream from Clinque, that was the perfect fit.
