How to Make Eye Cream With Coffee That Removes Eye Puffiness And Dark Circles

The eyes are the main part of our body that people are looking at while we are talking with them. The eyes can tell a lot about the person.

Dark circles under the eyes could mean lack of sleep or bad sleeping habits, but they could mean that you are deficient in iron or the supply of oxygen to the body tissues is hampered.

Now I won’t talk about health problems related to dark circles, but the beauty problem that they cause. And how we can reduce them by using only natural ingredients.

Coffee and caffeine

Coffee is my favourite drink and it helps me to be active through the day, but it also helps my skin to looked bright and radiant.

Coffee contains hundreds of substances, including potassium, magnesium, and vitamin E. It is rich in antioxidants, especially chlorogenic acid. But perhaps most people associate coffee with the caffeine it contains.

Caffeine is a stimulant that can be found in coffee, tea, cacao, and other plants. It is considered to be the most commonly used psychoactive drug in the world. It affects the nervous system.

The skin absorbs everything you put on it. So, when you apply caffeine directly to the skin significant amount of it the skin absorbs, and it enters the bloodstream.


Benefits of caffeine when applied to the skin

Caffeine, a natural antioxidant derived from coffee, acts as a diuretic and can help to relieve water retention, a major cause of puffiness under the eyes.

It stimulates blood circulation that helps to reduce the appearance of puffiness, dark circles, and fine lines.

The caffeine in coffee grounds has potent antioxidant properties that can help protect the skin from sun damage (sun spots, redness, fine lines).

The chlorogenic acid in coffee have both anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties.

Don’t worry to try it even if you don’t have all of the ingredients I mark. If you make the coffee-infused oil without adding other ingredients it will be great too. The other ingredients have many benefits and this is why I add them, but the coffee-infused oil will reduce dark circles and puffiness as well.

Shea butter softens the skin, fades dark marks and scars, has natural SPF, has anti-inflammatory properties, and has a moisturizing effect.

Cocoa butter has antioxidants that improve blood flow, promotes a healthy glow, fights wrinkles and protects from UV damage.

Jojoba oil has Vitamin E and B-complex that aid in skin repair and damage control, has antibacterial properties, regulates the production of sebum, hydrates, and can delay signs of aging.

Rosehip seed oil is full of vitamins, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids, corrects dark spots, reduces scars and fine lines, hydrates dry, itchy skin.

Lavender oil clears the skin, balances the skin, encourages dead skin cells to slough away, relieves puffiness.

VItamin E oil protects the skin from UV radiation, smoothens and softens the skin, fights the wrinkles, age spots, and lines, heals scars.

Apply the eye cream in the evening, before you go to sleep. Leave it overnight. Make sure it doesn’t go into your eyes. If it does, by chance, rinse your eyes immediately with water. In the morning after wake up, rinse your face with warm water. The dark circles and lines fade away gradually. You need to have patience.
