The skin under the eyes is the most delicate part of your facial skin. As it is extremely thin, it is susceptible to pigmentation and wrinkling. Therefore you should take appropriate care of the fragile skin around the eyes to reduce dark circles and sagginess and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
An eye serum is an essential component of your under eye skin care. It helps in soothing and hydrating the delicate skin around the eyes. By combining various natural hydrating products with anti-aging and skin lightening properties you can easily create your own eye serum. Homemade eye serums are as effective as the expensive commercial products. Here are some simple homemade eye serum recipes that help in reducing dark circles and tightening the skin around your eyes.
Here Are The 5 Easy DIY Eye Serum Recipes:
1. Almond Oil and Aloe Vera Eye Serum
Both aloe vera gel and almond oil are common ingredients in a number of commercial eye serums. You can prepare your own eye serum by combining two parts of aloe vera gel and one part of the almond oil. Apply a small amount of the homemade eye serum to the skin around your eyes.
2. Coconut Oil and Avocado Eye Serum
The fat rich coconut and avocado oils are ideal for moisturizing the delicate skin. Moreover, avocado is packed with antioxidants that help in slowing down skin ageing.

With your ring finger, apply few drops of the eye serum to the under eye skin.
3. Jojoba Oil, Rose and Chamomile Eye Serum
Combine five drops of chamomile essential oil and five drops of rosehip essential oil with two tablespoons of jojoba oil. Apply one to two drops of the serum to the skin around your eye. Jojoba oil and the essential oils help in hydrating, soothing and firming the skin.
