getting more and more wrinkles every day? What do you do too keep the annoying
wrinkles at bay?
If you are
investing tons of money in expensive eye creams (that look fancy, but are often
full of nasty chemicals) and they do not
even seem to work, we have an alternative solution for you – cheap, effective
and most importantly – natural! Today we’d love to share with you our favorite
homemade nourish eye lotion recipe and we sincerely hope that you’ll like it as
much as we do. Let’s cook!
5 tbsp argan oil
2 tbsp coconut oil
vitamin E oil
100ml glass jar
small wooden stick or spoon
Melt the coconut oil (if it’s not
already melted) by warming the jar where you store it. As you probably know
Coconut oil is solid at room temperature but it melts pretty easily (for example,
when you rub it between you palms). Once melted, mix it with the argan oil and
vitamin E oil and stir the mixture for a minute, in order to achieve good
homogenization. Once the mixture is cool you can close the jar. Keep the lotion
in the fridge, if you want the preserve its qualities for longer. Apply it
every morning and evening, after you’ve cleansed your skin (and after the
toner, if you use one).

Vitamin E (tocopherol) is a
powerful antioxidant that protects the living cells from free radicals –
primary cause for premature aging and the appearance of aging spots. Vitamin E
speeds up wound healing and reduces scar formation (especially when scars are
caused by acne or burns) by supporting new cell growth. It’s wonderful for dry,
sensitive skin, because it hydrates and protects and at the same time – improves
elasticity and firmness. Last but not least, it extends shelf life, when added
to personal care products, which guarantees that your eye lotion won’t go off in
Coconut Oil is our all-time
favorite – the entire La Mav team loves it! It smells Ah-ma-zing (sooo good,
that you want to eat it!) and makes your skin incredibly smooth and soft!
Because of its velvet like texture it’s a real pleasure to apply it on your
skin – it glides smoothly and it soaks almost immediately. The greatest thing
about it is that it leaves a very thin layer on the skin’s surface that locks
water inside the cells, which is why it is considered to be one of the best
Argan Oil (once called “liquid gold”)
is the ultimate elixir for aging skin. It stimulates the renewal of skin cell
and protects the newly formed ones. It slows down the aging process, smoothes out
fine wrinkles, improves the overall condition of the skin and gives nice,
healthy glow. Argan oil is rich in squalene – powerful antioxidant that easily
penetrates the skin, strengthening it from the inside and making the cells more
resistant to external damage.
Combining the healing powers of
these three remarkable ingredients, you are sure to get great results!
