Self-care isn’t just about taking the time to care for ourselves. It is also about being mindful of the way we nurture our physical and emotional selves. Part of this involves careful attention to the ingredients in our cooking and skincare. Knowing what is in our skincare can put us at ease when we know exactly what we are putting in our bodies.
This simple cream made of three ingredients works exquisitely for rejuvenating the skin under your eyes. It is calming and hydrating, and its sensual aroma is similarly soothing.
You will need:
- ½ cup coconut oil
- 2 vitamin E capsules
- 2-3 drops of essential rose oil – calms and smoothes
Mix coconut oil well. Make sure the oil is not too soft or too hard. Add in the liquid from 2 vitamin E capsules. Add 2-3 drops of rose oil. Mix well. This recipe makes plenty, so store the rest in a mason jar.
Coconut oil is gentle enough for the thin skin that surrounds your eye. It is a natural moisturizer that is rich in fatty acids. It also reduces breakouts and spots thanks to its antibacterial properties.
