Fact: Wrinkles are LAME! While wrinkles show a long life lived, they sometimes come prematurely and that’s no bueno. Age isn’t the only thing that causes wrinkles, in fact the skin around our eyes are so thin, it really doesn’t take much. Sun damage, squinting, smiling, smoking (gross) and dehydration can all cause wrinkles.
The skin elasticity under our eyes is similar to a rubber band – the more tugging & pulling you do, the more it stretches out. So while you can prevent wrinkles by being gentle around the eye area and avoiding the sun and smoking, our eye oil will give you that extra cushion you need to prevent crow’s feet.
Everything in this DIY eye firming oil is all-natural. Almond oil is rich in vitamins A, D and E, which softens and soothes the skin. Primrose oil and black currant oil have anti-inflammatory properties and has concentrated sources of Gamma Linolenic Acid. GLA is an omega-6 fatty acid that is commonly found in plant based oils. It’s an essential fatty acid, necessary for our health and keeps us looking radiant We top this oil off with Vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that prevents premature aging and boosts collagen production that helps keep skin elastic.
2 tbl sweet almond oil
2 tbl evening primrose oil
20 drops black currant oil
1/4 tsp vitamin E

… that’s it!
Add a drop of oil to your hand (a little will go a long way) and gently pat the oil with your fingertip under and around the eye area after cleansing. Don’t get it in your eye!
It’s good for 12 months.
the big dang theory: When buying natural ingredients - take the time to shop around for the best deals and buy in bulk. They tend to be more pricey than their chemical-loving counterparts so search the web for good deals and if possible, buy in bulk for additional discounts.
