Best Eye Cream Recipes
for Natural Eye Care
Homemade remedies and all natural skin care recipes that will give you the best eye cream for your natural skincare.
The skin around your eyes is delicate and has few or no oil glands, making it susceptible to drying out, developing fine lines, crows feet and wrinkling!
Try a natural anti aging and anti wrinkle eye cream to help combat the signs of aging.
Taking care of the skin around your eyes should be a big part of your daily skincare routine.
A really great way to combat this is to regularly apply an eye treatment around your eye area, and often this is best done just before you go to sleep at night.
The best eye cream should be made from good quality cold pressed oils and the finest essential oils.
You also need to apply the eye wrinkle cream with a light, feather motion so as to not damage the skin around your eyes with a heavy touch.
Puffy Eyes & Tires Eyes
There are many reasons why we get puffy eyes.
It can be simply a lack of good sleep, stress, poor diet, or working our eyes too hard (such as on the computer).
If the problem persists then you might suspect allergies, and then it is worth getting further help with the problem.
Using the best eye cream you can is only part of the solution, so here are some simple eye treatments to try first.
CHAMOMILE TEA BAGS
Place a couple of Chamomile tea bags in hot water briefly to soften them.
Allow to cool well - perhaps even put them into the fridge until you need them.
Lie back and place the lovely cool Chamomile tea bags over your eyes. Restful, refreshing and soothing to puffy eyes.
The tannin in the tea has an anti-inflammatory effect.
You could also try the used teabags from black or green tea, orange pekoe tea or fennel to help relieve tired sore eyes.
POTATO AND CUCUMBER
A slice of either raw potato or cucumber over each eye will also help reduce puffiness around the eye.
Sometimes the puffiness under the eye can be relieved by some gentle tapping with your fingers.
Simply tap the orbital bone under your eye gently with your middle finger (the bone around your eye socket). Keep tapping as you move your finger around your eye.
This can help with puffiness as it increases circulation in the area, and can help drain any fluid that may have built up causing puffiness.
CORNFLOWERS (Centaurea cyanus)
This bright blue, old European flower is great for tired eyes when made into an infusion.
WHAT YOU NEED
15g of dried cornflowers (the flower only)
500ml of freshly boiled water
WHAT TO DO
Pour the boiling water over the cornflowers and allow to steep.
Once cooled and strained, use the liquid to bathe your eyes.
Pure and simple. Milk can help with puffy eyes. Simple dab the milk around your eyes, or you can soak cotton balls in nice cold milk and place them over your eyes for about 15 minutes.
If you have ever had a stye in your eye it is an uncomfortable and irritating experience. And often they just seem to come out of nowhere!
A simple home remedy to try (or an old wives tale, depending on how you look at it) is using a gold ring. I have used this many times, and to be honest, I am not sure why it works, but it usually does!
Simply take a gold ring and carefully run it along the rim of your eye that has the stye. You may need to do this a few times during the day but it should help quite quickly, and without any need for other eye treatments.
Calendula (pot marigold) cream and tea tree cream are both know to help with the infection. Take great care not to get them in your eye as it will sting!
Aloe vera sap is also great for soothing the eye.
Soft Eye Cream
This is just the best eye cream that will help soften the skin around your eyes, and therefore help reduce the lines as well as help prevent more from forming.
Remember that you need to start using it daily to see results, and continue to use it when you see the benefits (and realize it really is the best eye cream!).
WHAT YOU NEED:
1 tablespoon lanolin
2 teaspoons almond oil
2 teaspoons wheat germ oil
1 teaspoon apricot oil
2 teaspoons purified water - warmed
Clean (preferably sterile) jar or container with airtight lid.
WHAT TO DO:
Melt the lanolin, almond oil, wheat germ oil and apricot oil until liquid using a bowl over a bowl or pot of hot water.
Remove from the heat once well mixed together.
When the water is warmed, to about the same temperature as the other ingredients, it is ready to add.
Slowly add the water to the bowl of melted ingredients as you stir.
Continue stirring as the mixture cools.
Pour into the container and put the lid on.
