Reduce dark circles with this DIY coffee eye serum!
Dark circles… puffy eyes… when I don’t get enough sleep, it’s pretty easy to tell with a quick glance.
Dark circles are caused by oxygenated blood pooled beneath the eyes. Being horizontal as you sleep makes it worse – especially if you sleep on your tummy.
So why do some people have worse circles than others? Some people just have thinner skin underneath their eyes than others!
Caffeine applied topically improves circulation and plumps up the skin, diminishing the appearance of the circles. It also works to bring puffiness down, so this diy caffeine eye serum going to be your new early-morning best friend!
Coffee improves circulation, exfoliate, brighten dark and dull skin, energizing.
Coffee eye serum recipe:
- 1/2 cup ground coffee
- Sweet almond oil
- Avocado oil
- Serum bottle
infuse some sweet almond oil with with ground coffee. Add 1/2 cup ground coffee to a jar, then just enough sweet almond oil to cover the coffee grounds. Close the jar tightly and let it sit in your cupboard for 4 or 5 days to infuse.
Using a cheesecloth, strain the infused oil into another jar or a clean bowl. Squeeze as much of the oil out as you can.
Add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil and stir until combined
Bottle it ready! You can add a couple coffee beans because it’s cute and will continue to infuse the serum with caffeine.
You don’t have to keep this serum in the fridge for preservation, but it’s not a bad idea: cold is great for puffy eyes, so it’ll enhance the effects.
Massage few drops around the eyes and top up with a natural eye treatment gel
