DIY Eye Cream


It's no secret that one of the things that bother girls are the dark circles underneath their eyes. A really good concealer will surely help in making it invisible but sometimes, the solution is easier than we thought.

There are so many reasons why a person develops eye bags or under eye circles. It might be because of stress, lack of sleep or it might because one has a thin layer of skin underneath the eye. It's not really a problem because normally, the skin under the circles of our eyes are really thin. Somehow, some people have thinner ones and that is the reason why they appear to have darker circles. And that's their veins showing up.

I'm no doctor as you know but I have here a natural dark under eye circles remedy that I have been using. This doesn't have a profound and immediate result but I must say that this really works based on my experience. I'm confident to share to you this DIY eye cream because I know that this is totally safe. Of course the effect might be different but you wouldn't lose so much money doing this and this is so fun. You can share this with your family or girl friends too once you are done!

WHAT YOU NEED:

There are only two ingredients that are needed for this DIY- matcha green tea powder and petroleum jelly. Any green tea powder will actually do. You may use scented or unscented petroleum jellies but I would recommend the unscented ones just because they are more natural.

Green tea is made from the leaves of a powerful plant that have undergone a minimal process of oxidation. A number of potential benefits has been proven about it and it has continue to make wonders in the world of medicine. It hydrates the skin, reduces stress and it contains antioxidants that helps protect your skin from the sun and prevent wrinkles. Too much for one product right? petroleum jelly on the other hand is an ointment that probably contains a "cure-all" benefit. It contains natural element that can help moisturize and repair damage skin. It is hypoallergenic and nonsensitizing which is really good for all types of skin. Quick trivia: petroleum jelly is Tyra Bank's lip balm! 

Both ingredients have profound moisturizing effect which is really good as one of the reasons why most of us have dark under eye circles is dehydration. Combine both and you'll see the result!


You may use any mixing tool and container that you want just make sure they are clean.

PROCEDURE:
I have here a step by step photographs of the procedure. You only need to follow these once you have all the things that you need.










Note/Tip:
Don't worry about looking like a monster after applying the cream because it doesn't have a strong green color at all. ( See photo on the left)

You may add Almond/Olive oil in the mixture if you want. For cooler application, store the cream in your refrigerator. 

I hope you love this DIY. Let me know your thoughts or suggestions on the comment section below.



UPDATE:
FAQ's
1. Are you using this on yourself?
-Yes, I am always using it!
2. Does it have any side effects?
-It doesn't have any side effects on me as far as I've been using it. I'm not 100% sure it wouldn't have on you because each of us have different skins and you might have allergy. But I personally do not think this can cause any side effects because the two ingredients are both wholesome and hypoallergenic to the skin. Like I said above, I'm no skin doctor. You might check first if you are allergic to petroleum jelly or green tea before using for your safety.
3. Does it feel oily?
- I don't consider it "oily" because after some time, the cream will settle on your skin. I don't feel any oilyness around my eye as I was using it.
4. How does the cream feels like on the skin?
- It feels exactly the same as a petroleum jelly.


Love lots,

Tin

  17. thank you so much for your sweet comments! I'm sorry you didn't get to experience prom but life is full of good experiences and opportunities and prom is just one of them. My prom was fun but since then I had many other memorable moments and most of them a lot more fun than a high school prom could ever be:).
