/coffee

For a healthy, natural, and nurturing eye serum, give this DIY a try. Seriously! With daily use, you will see a difference (at least I did).

Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup fresh coffee grounds
  • avocado oil
  • vitamin E oil
  • small container with lid

Coffee:

  • A great constrictor, useful for reducing puffiness and swelling under eyes.

Avocado oil:

  • Aids in healing sun damage due its moisturizing and nourishing compounds.
  • Easily absorbs into deep tissue, assisting in skin rejuvenation.

Vitamin E oil:

  • Vitamin E plays a role in the anti-aging of skin. It helps skin look younger by fighting age spots and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • The antioxidant activity in Vitamin E is vital in protecting skin cells from ultra violet light, pollution, and other elements that produce cell damaging free radicals.

Empty coffee grounds into a glass jar and completely saturate with avocado oil. Tip: pour oil in small amounts allowing oil to fully soak in. Let the coffee and oil sit, covered for 3-4 days.
