Americans spend billions each year on anti-aging products. If you’ve spent hundreds on ineffective products to reduce undereye wrinkles, puffiness or discoloration, there’s another way. Create a nongreasy eye cream from aloe vera gel and grape-seed oil -- derived from grapes, its antioxidants help prevent premature aging and those unwanted fine lines and wrinkles.
Pour 3 tablespoons beeswax in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium heat for 30 seconds, or until melted. Pull out the bowl and add 1 tablespoon aloe vera gel and 2 teaspoons jojoba oil.
Stir the ingredients together and add 1 tablespoon grape-seed oil. Mix the ingredients and set aside until the beeswax is completely cooled. If undereye lines and wrinkles are a problem, add 1 teaspoon vitamin E oil.
Pour the mixture into a clean jar with a tight-fitting lid. To use, gently cleanse your undereye area with a product formulated for your skin type. Gently dry the undereye area with a soft cloth. Apply the product under your eyes with a cotton swab or your fingertips, taking care to avoid getting it in your eyes. Store the unused portion in a cool, dry place and use the cream in the morning and before bed.
