Coffee and almond oil is a well-known treatment for dark circles and below is a recipe for eye cream that contains these 2 dominant and effective ingredients:
Coffee oil- Coffee has amazing skin lightening and detoxing properties. It increases circulation and makes skin plump and lightens fine lines.
Almond oil- Almond oil lightens dark circles to a great extent! It also keeps the sensitive and delicate eye area healthy and well-moisturized and this way, it prevents or smooth out fine lines.
Beeswax- Beeswax is a great skin moisturizer. It also sets the final product and gives it the desired non-oily and creamy texture.
