With organic baobab oil, this natural eye cream recipe is an effective way to nourish and care for the sensitive skin under your eyes. This DIY eye cream features coconut oil, shea butter, and vitamin E oil to beautifully soak in and give your under-eye area a bright refreshing glow.
Baobab Oil Under-Eye Cream
One of the most rewarding aspects of making your skincare products, like the Baobab Under-Eye Moisturizer, is the opportunity to nourish your skin with high-quality, natural ingredients.
Hydrate Under Your Eyes Naturally
Creating your skincare gives you the freedom to handpick each ingredient based on its nourishing properties. Consider the baobab oil benefits as well as the other ingredients in this specific formula to make natural eye cream at home:
- Baobab oil in this natural eye cream is rich in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins. These nutrients deeply moisturize the skin and promote a smooth and supple appearance.
- The organic unrefined coconut oil helps to soften and hydrate the skin, preventing dryness and fine lines.
- Beeswax acts as a natural emollient, sealing in moisture and keeping the under-eye area hydrated.
- Organic refined shea butter, with its vitamins A and E, nourishes and protects the skin from environmental damage.
- Vitamin E oil, a powerful antioxidant, supports the skin’s natural healing process, reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.
Using these nourishing ingredients in your homemade skincare products provides your skin with the essential nutrients it needs to maintain its health and vitality. You have the power to create formulations that specifically target your skin concerns and promote a radiant complexion.
Furthermore, making your own skincare products allows you to avoid potentially harmful chemicals and additives that are commonly in commercial products. Instead, you can focus on using natural and organic ingredients that are gentle on your skin and provide long-lasting nourishment.
Baobab Oil Eye Cream Recipe
- Organic Baobab Oil: Baobab oil is wonderful to use on the face, as it’s rich in essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins A, D, and E. It deeply moisturizes the skin, promoting a smooth and supple appearance. Its high vitamin C content helps to brighten the under-eye area and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
- Organic Unrefined Coconut Oil: Coconut oil is well-known for its moisturizing properties. It helps to soften and hydrate the skin, preventing dryness and fine lines. Additionally, coconut oil contains lauric acid, which has antimicrobial properties that can help protect the skin from harmful bacteria. Use organic refined coconut oil as a substitute.
- Beeswax Pastilles: Beeswax acts as a natural emollient, sealing in moisture and creating a protective barrier on the skin. It helps to retain the skin’s natural moisture and prevent water loss, keeping the under-eye area hydrated and plump.
- Organic Refined Shea Butter: Shea butter is incredibly nourishing and moisturizing. It contains vitamins A and E, which help to promote healthy skin and protect it from environmental damage. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory properties, soothing any irritation or puffiness around the eyes.
- Vitamin E Oil: Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect the skin from free radicals and oxidative stress. It supports the skin’s natural healing process, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots.
Please note that while these ingredients are known for their beneficial properties, this recipe is not intended to make any medical claims. It is always recommended to perform a patch test and consult with a healthcare professional before trying any new skincare products.
How to Make and Use Natural Eye Cream
To easily make this under-eye cream at home, first place the baobab oil, coconut oil, beeswax, and shea butter within the top of a double boiler and set it to medium heat. Melt the ingredients, while stirring occasionally.
Once everything melts in the double boiler, remove it from the heat and stir in the vitamin E oil.
Next, pour the cream into glass jars or tins that you want to store your under-eye moisturizer in. Keep them uncovered, and let them sit until the cream solidifies.
Once the eye cream is set, cover the containers and store it in the refrigerator.
To use your homemade baobab oil eye cream, gently pat a small amount (less than pea-sized) of the eye cream onto the under-eye area after washing your face. Be careful to not tug or rub at the delicate skin!
Note: Make sure to avoid the eyes, waterline, and lashes, and do not apply the cream above your eyes. If any cream gets in your eye, gently wash with lukewarm water.
Embracing the practice of making your own skincare, and this natural eye cream is a way to pamper yourself, prioritize self-care, and show love to your skin. It’s an opportunity to develop a deeper connection with your skin and truly understand its unique needs.
So, take some time to experiment with this Baobab Under-Eye Moisturizer recipe and other homemade skincare creations. Explore the nourishing benefits that natural ingredients can offer and revel in the joy of taking care of your skin in a holistic and personalized way. Your skin will thank you with a healthy, radiant glow!
