So what causes under eye bags?

As you age you’re more likely to experience bags under your eyes. Because the tissue structures and muscles supporting your eyelids weakens, this skin may start to sag. As a result fat that is normally contained around your eye may drop into the area below your eyes. In addition, this area may also retain fluid causing your eyes to look puffy or swollen. Typical causes of this include fluid retention due to hormone levels, salty foods or changes in the weather, lack of sleep, allergies or dermatitis. Heredity can also play a factor.

How to I resolve my puffy eyes?

It’s not always easy to know exactly what is causing your under eye puffiness, so starting by taking care of yourself is key. Curb your salt intake and manage those seasonal allergies with medication. You can also try using a neti pot, sleeping on your back, drink alcohol in moderation – and keep hydrated when you do drink! – use sunscreen, remove eye makeup before bed to prevent possible irritation, and don’t smoke. Cooling down your eye area also helps to relieve eye puffiness, and so this is where my DIY anti-puff eye roller comes in!

Made with aloe vera juice and caffeine extract, this DIY anti-puff eye roller also contains peppermint essential oil to for an instant cooling sensation. While this product won’t perform miracles in which your puffy eyes vanish forever, depending on the cause, it’s possible it can noticeably reduce your under eye bags when preventable causes are removed from the equation.

Ingredients:

6 mL aloe vera juice
3 mL water soluble caffeine extract
1 drop peppermint essential oil

Instructions:

Using two graduated plastic transfer pipettes – one for each ingredient – or reusable glass graduated transfer pipettes, measure out the aloe vera juice and water soluble caffeine extract. Combine in a 10 mL roller bottle. Add one drop of the peppermint essential oil using a dropper or a fresh pipette. (You don’t want to use any more than one drop of peppermint essential oil as it’s pretty potent and you’re working with a delicate area of the skin!) Now pop on the roller bottle top and screw on the lid. Shake well to combine. That’s it!

To use simply apply the anti-puff eye roller under each of your eyes as needed.

Keep your DIY anti-puff eye roller in the refrigerator between uses. The cold not only helps to cool and calm puffy faster, but it also keeps the aloe vera juice from going bad. You can store the aloe vera juice, once opened, in the refrigerator for up to two months.

Also a huge thank you to my dear friend, Bambi, who not only help me to create this project – along with several others this past week! – but also so eloquently modeled my DIY anti-puff eye roller for me! (In exchange she got to keep some of what we made AND we got to share a bottle of wine together!) In addition to helping me to keep my creative drive up and going to hear all of the best bands in Roanoke with me, Bambi also makes and sells her own beaded jewelry in her Etsy shop, Happy Tree Frog Studios.

This healing neem butter recipe is wonderful for helping to heal minor wounds and abrasions as well as to help minimize scarring.

Bambi is also a recent breast cancer survivor. Having beaten the cancer through surgery and radiation treatments, she is now on a daily course of Tamoxifen for the next five years. And I’m thrilled to still have her around for the rest of forever. She’s also the super awesome friend that I created my natural burn relief spray and healing neem butter recipes for. (And lucky her, because she said they both worked fabulously for their intended uses!) So, here’s my gentle SHOUT reminder to please, please, please get your yearly mammograms by age 40 or even sooner! – age 35 – if you have a history of breast cancer in your family. They caught Bambi’s cancer very early on when she went in for her first mammogram at 40 with zero suspicions by her GYN that anything was wrong when she called and scheduled the mammogram for her during her yearly visit.

Homemade Coffee Body Lotion Recipe – For a Pick Me Up Anytime.

Since my days have been switched around lately for my new work schedule, I’ve discovered just why my boyfriend loves Starbucks so much. Coffee definitely gets you through many a rough morning and makes the day easier. While I prefer my caffeine in the form a mocha or chai latte or even a cup of Earl Grey loose leaf tea or Diet Mountain Dew, I see the appeal of just plain old coffee. Mine just have to have flavors. So I was pretty psyched find this recipe for Homemade Coffee Body Lotion.

While research suggests that caffeine can’t be absorbed through your skin if it’s found in soap, a caffeinated lotion is a different story. So you can probably expect a little pick me up from the use of this product. It’s also suggested that caffeine can reduce hair growth suppression caused by testosterone. However, if you’re vying away from caffeine for any reason, simply use a decaffeinated coffee in your recipe.
The Coffee Lotion Recipe from One Mom’s World Reflected in Photographs Blog calls for 1 1/2 cups of real coffee – your favorite of course! The author used Hazelnut Cream Coffee for her handmade coffee body lotion. She then scents the body lotion with essential oils of her choice. However, if you happen to be a ridiculously huge coffee fan, you can also add a bit of coffee scented fragrance oil. Just be sure to refer to manufacturer guidelines of any fragrance oil you choose to see what the maximums are for using in lotions. These can vary wildly from .2% – 2% depending on the fragrance. I’m partial to the Coffee Mocha Fragrance myself as it smells like Starbuck’s blend of chocolate, vanilla and coffee.
For the rest of this recipe you just need some emulsifying wax, a carrier oil like olive or almond or even coconut oil, and a little Vitamin E! It’s not difficult to make and wildly scrumptious on your skin. If you’re looking for organic ingredients for your recipe, be sure to check out Mountain Rose Herbs.
