DIY Eye Cream

You only need 2 ingredients, a small clean container and about 5 minutes. Coconut oil and vitamin E oil are the 2 ingredients. Coconut oil is a natural moisturizer and multi-nutrient. Make sure to use organic virgin coconut oil and not refined as this is not as good. The vitamin E is a antioxidant and has anti-aging properties and natural healing properties. You will see this ingredient a lot in over the counter eye creams. 
First off I take a heaped tablespoon of coconut oil, I microwave this in a microwave safe bowl for about 35 seconds. Coconut oil is of a hard consistency at first but with the warmth of your hands/face it melts quickly. I use a fork to pop open the Vitamin E capsules and squeeze them in the bowl. Use about 4-6 vitamin E capsules. I stir all this together and simply put the liquid in my clean container. After a while the liquid will harden in the container.

 It is super easy, effective and a cheap alternative to eye-cream. You should see results in about 2 weeks. I use this in my night-time skincare routine. 

Tips: use and old eye cream container and wash it out to put your homemade eye-cream in or you can purchase any small plastic containers in a pound shop, dollar store or euro saver.
