Do you know most judge someone’s age by looking at their face? It is important to understand the eyes are a key factor in age determination, as the skin around the eyes tends to show age earlier. Now you know why you need an eye serum, let’s look at how to do it.

So, how do people judge someone’s age? Usually, the skin around the eyes, lips and neck are the key areas where age reflects. However, around the eyes is a definitive factor.

Using an eye serum can nourish the delicate skin around your eyes, boost collagen production and keep your skin younger longer. Another reason for the skin around your eyes to show your age sooner is that eyes work round the clock – blinking.

So, gently massaging an eye serum that is also anti-ageing can work wonders for the skin around your eyes. I was looking at a few eye serums and noticed most have one chemical or the other. Even the “natural” products as they’re claimed, have chemicals stashed in them.

I decided I wanted a natural, nourishing, moisturizing and anti-ageing eye serum that works for me and is completely natural. After some research and trials and errors, I came up with this recipe that works!

We will look at the recipe and then more about it. Ready?


Vitamin E Oil – 1 Tsp.
Evening Primrose Oil – 1/2 Tsp.
Rosehip Seed Oil – ½ Tsp.
Sweet Almond Oil – 15 Ml
Castor Oil – 1 Tsp.
Carrot Seed Oil – ½ Tsp.
Argan Oil – 1 Tsp.
Helichrysum Essential Oil – 5 Drops



Sterilize a dark glass bottle and add all the ingredients mentioned above.

Shake gently and let it sit for 2 days.

Voila! You’re done.

Tips to Tweak the Recipe

I use Helichrysum Essential Oil for the anti-ageing properties. However, if you are more comfortable with Lavender Essential Oil or Chamomile Essential Oil, go for it. You can even give Essential Oils a miss, if you are uncomfortable using it close to your eyes.

Feel free to skip Carrot Seed Oil or Rosehip Seed Oil if you don’t get it. While they’re great additions and boast a lot of benefits and even a few drops go a long way, skip them if you can’t get it. Substitute it with Wheat Germ Oil or Evening Primrose Oil or other oils (with anti-ageing properties) that you are comfortable with, from the list.

Sweet Almond Oil is a light, but nourishing and anti-ageing oil that works for every skin type. However, if you want a richer serum, or if your skin is extremely dry, substitute it with Avocado Oil, or use both and divide the quantity given above between these.

If you want to simplify the entire recipe, just go with Vitamin E Oil, Castor Oil, Sweet Almond Oil and a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil. Yes, it will work, though I would recommend adding Wheat Germ Oil to it – if you can get it.
